Competitors will perform 2 of their belt-level forms.
White: Taeguek 1 or Kibon or Your school's white belt form

Green: Taeguek 1 - 4
Blue: Taeguek 1 - 6
Red: Taeguek 1 - 8

A division will perform the first form, completing the first round. Then the division will perform the second form (round 2). Each contestant will be scored from 1 to 10 on each form. Scores from round 1 and round 2 will be added together and contestant with highest combination will be gold medalist, second-highest score will be silver medalist and next 2 highest scores shall be bronze medalists.
Example 1: A blue belt will perform mandatory Taeguek 5 or 6, and then may choose from Taeguek 1 - 6 for their second form.
Example 2: A white belt or yellow belt will perform mandatory Taeguek 1 or 2, and then will perform Taeguek 1 again for their second form.
Example 3: A red belt would perform mandatory Taeguek 7 or 8, and choose Taeguek 1 - 8 for their second form.
Example 4: 3rd Dan Black Belt would perform mandatory Taebaek, and then choose Taeguek 1 - Keumgang for their second form.
Choosing a higher second form will be viewed as higher difficulty so if quality between player A and player B is equal, the one doing the higher level of forms will score higher.
Sparring will be guaranteed 2 matches for each competitor.
Medals will be awarded for 1st place (gold), 2nd place (silver) and 2-3rd places (bronze).
We will do our best to have brackets of 4. Winners of first matches will advance to championship match. Losers from first match then go against each other for a second match that does not count for a medal.
