Watch the Replay of the Virtual Hanmadang for Black Belts
Fast forward the video to 23:15 for the beginning of the tournament. The video is so long YouTube would not let me trim it. We followed the order in the division sheet you can download below. If you are looking for a particular athlete, that may help in finding them. The date is wrong all the slides as well. It was May 1 not March 1.
Registration is closed for Black Belts competing on May 1st. However, we are happy to announce we have extended registration for color belts until Wednesday, May 5th at midnight. Please don’t hesitate to sign up now before time runs out.

Competitors should have a taekwondo or martial arts uniform in good condition, any color is acceptable. Belt representing rank is required and should be tied neatly and evenly.
There is no maximum number of events a person can participate in. However, a person cannot register for the same event more than once. The Organizing Committee will work hard to ensure participants will not be scheduled to perform in two separate events at the same time.
If the competitor cannot be judged due to a technical difficulty (e.g. internet connection crashes), they may perform again without penalty. The judgement will be made by the tournament committee regarding the nature of a technical error. It’s recommended to link to a wired connection if available. During competition, please have your family reduce internet usage for better connectability.
Real Time Viewing:
The Tournament will be held on Zoom with “LIVE” Youtube streaming (link to be posted at the tournament site) for spectators. Athletes will be sent a Zoom link and time of competition at least 24 hours before the event. Information regarding registration, competition rules and format, competition call-times, and spectator information can be found within the general information packet.
