Tournament Notes

Black belt poomsae was changed so competitors will perform a single poomsae in the preliminary and semifinal rounds. Please check the information packet for the updated poomsae.

IMPORTANT NOTE FOR COLOR BELTS: although 8 weight divisions are listed for color belts in the online Hangastar registration site, color belt sparring will be combined into 4 weight divisions as described below: fin/fly, bantam/feather, light/welter, and middle/heavy. Color belt competitors who would like to use the National Collegiate Taekwondo Championships to qualify for the Senior National Championships in the color belt divisions should register and weigh in at the weight division that they wish to qualify for. Also, note that the green and blue belt divisions will be combined for sparring only (but not Poomsae), even though they are listed as separate divisions in Hangastar. The color belt poomsae divisions are white & yellow, green, blue, and red.
