Basically, this competition is a completely video recording competition. It's NOT a Live competition.

We'll follow the World Taekwondo Competition rules with online regulations.

Please check the video recording guidelines in the outline.

You can check the WT online competition recording guidelines by video below.

*It's almost same as what we require In 2nd poomsae lover competition,the difference is: It's not required to declare anything before perform (We don't need you to declare your name, level, noc,poomsae name etc before your perform..). But if you would like to do so, no problem.

Due to space restriction, stomping without sound is allowed and won’t be deducted.
