Focusing issue with Small subjects - Taekwondo Video attached
I've only just started using the HV40 and I did some filming at Taekwondo Victoria State Selection and I noticed sometimes the Camera's Auto Focus was focusing on the Background and not the Subjects. For the most part it was ok. With this type of footage should I be going to Manual Focus?

Thanks for that, I will give it a go at the next competition. I'm going to look up focus assist in my manual now
