Forms (Poomsae)

WTF Competition Poomsae Format Division
(Divisions within this category include Individual, Pairs, and
 Team Poomsae Competition
),

This is a WTF Poomsae only competition. A modified cut-off system will be used to ensure all competitors will be scored on a minimum of two forms. Color belts will be required to know their rank form and any other Taegeuk forms. Black belts will be required to know all forms for their age catagory regardless of their rank. (See Poomsae division requirements). WTF World Championship rules will be applyed and all Poomsae standards are based on the WTF and Kukkiwon documented standards. See http://www.worldtaekwondofederation.net/wp-content/uploads/2015/11 Final_Poomsae_Competition_Rules_and_Interpretation_20140319.pdf for complete set of rules.

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.

Competitors will perform one at a time and be judged based on two
(2) categories — Accuracy and Presentation.
