Tournament Presentation

Introduction

This is currently written for Chinmukwan Taekwondo Federation (CTF) tournaments. As of this moment, we currently have presentation methods for forms and breaking divisions. More presentation methods for other divisions will be written.

General Presentation

The student (you) will sit on the sidelines of the division ring until called upon.

Once called upon:

  1. Raise your hand and answer “Yes sir!” or “Yes ma’am!” while standing up.
  2. Turn away from the ring, fix your uniform, and then return to original orientation.
  3. You will bow, enter the ring, run towards the judges. You will stop right in front of them.
    1. If you have any boards, you will take them with you. Place them at the floor in front of your feet.
  4. Bow, and then present yourself to the judges.

At this point, how you present yourself will depend on the division that you have entered in.
