In addition to official divisions, the US Poomsae Classic will offer an Open Division for black belts who wish to compete using WTF black belt forms, but may not be familiar with the form requirements. (i.e.: A black belt age 31-40 may not be familiar with Sipjin, a poomsae requirement based on WTF standards.) By competing in the Open Division, the black belt may choose any two WTF recognized poomsae to perform (Taegeuk or Yudanja). It is important to note that the poomsae that the black belt chooses must be WTF recognized poomsae and they must be performed to standard and will be judged by the standard.
