UPDATED US Open Poomsae Competition Rules

Jan. 16, 2015, 7:40 p.m. (ET)

Many members contacted USAT after the designated 2015 US Open Poomsae were published.  Their concern was that the majority of divisions contained duplicate Poomsae for Preliminary, Semi-Final and Final rounds.  USAT contacted several members of the WTF Poomsae leadership, including a member of the WTF 2014 Poomsae World Championship Competition Supervisory Board, for advice concerning the situation. Those contacted unanimously stated that Poomsae may be repeated except in the Final rounds.  As a result the USAT conducted random redraws for those divisions which contained Poomsae that were repeated in the three Final rounds. The Preliminary and Semi-Final rounds are as originally published for all divisions.
