Club Discipline & Etiquette

For insurance purposes, after an initial probation period of 4 weeks, all students must complete and sign a British Taekwondo membership form prior to any further training sessions. British Taekwondo Membership is valid for one year.

All students must have a valid British Taekwondo licence in order to be allowed to participate in any club training sessions. It is your responsibility to ensure that it is renewed prior to its expiration.

Unless prior permission has been granted a WT approved Dobok uniform and grade coloured belt must be worn during club training sessions in the Dojang. During the hot summer months a Way TKD T-shirt may be worn.

For safety purposes WT approved protection equipment must be worn for any contact training such as sparring, one-step, and self-defence. Minimum required Bodyguard, Head guard, gum shield, Groin guard.

It is recommended and essential for hydration to bring sufficient water or sports drinks (not energy drinks) for drinking during breaks.

Gradings will be approximately every 3 to 4 months and will depend on the student’s attendance record, attitude, technical abilities within their belt grade syllabus, and at the discretion of the instructors.

It is important to watch and listen to your instructor during explanations, do not distract others, raise your hand if you have a question and wait until the instructor has finished explaining and has your attention.

Misconduct or disrespect in the Dojang, running around, horseplay, hitting or pushing others, or any misuse of the Martial art will result in disciplinary action, which may result in being expelled from the club and any further training.

Respect all seniors and fellow students alike, respect of all equipment and venue.

No jewellery or accessories to be worn during training, finger/ toe nails should be kept trimmed.

During training sessions ensure mobile phones are either on silent mode or switched off to avoid any disruption of the session in progress, unless prior authorisation has been granted by the instructor.

    Methods of scoring

    Recognized Poomsae

    • Total score 10.0

    Accuracy

    Basic score 4.0

    1. 0.1 point shall be deducted each time a contestant does not perform the basic Movements or the pertinent Poomsae accurately.
    2. Accuracy in basic actions and the pertinent Poomsae: 0.3 points shall be deducted Each time a contestant makes a serious mistake.

    Explanation #1:

    Deductions of 0.1 point per small mistake or inaccurate performance: 0.1 shall be deducted Whenever any of the foot postures (Apkubi, Dwit-gubi, Beom-seogi, and all other standing Movements) or hand movements (Maki, Jireugi, Chigi and all other hand movements) are not performed as explained in the Poomsae Competition Scoring Guidelines.

    Explanation #2:

    Serious mistakes in accuracy: 0.3 points shall be deducted when actions are not performed in accordance with the Poomsae Competition Scoring Guidelines, or a wrong action is performed.

    Example:

    1. Eolgul Maki is performed instead of Arae Maki.
    2. Dwit-gubi is performed instead of Juchum-Seogi.
    3. Kihap (yelling) is not made or is at the wrong moment.

    Presentation

    Basic score 6.0

    Explanation #3:

    Deduction of points in presentation shall not be made for every small or serious mistake during the performance.

    Deduction of points in presentation shall be made for the overall performance of the Poomsae

    1. 2.0 points for speed and power.
    2. 2.0 points for control of power, speed and rhythm.
    3. 2.0 points for expression of energy

    Explanation #4:

    Speed and Power (score 2.0):

    Ability to perform Poomsae shall be evaluated on whether the movements are performed in accordance with the characteristics of the pertinent movement, for example, whether attacking techniques like Jieugi, Chagi, etc are best performed, whether the movement is performed with a soft start and with a perfect balance between speed and power utilising the body weight at the maximum, and whether a special movement is performed slowly and intentionally, etc.

    Example 1: Deduction of point shall be made if too much strength is revealed in the beginning of the movements as it slows down the movement at the most important point of the movement.

    Example 2: Deduction of point shall be made if one exaggerates a movement to propel the next movement or utilises the reaction of the body to express power.

    Explanation #5

    Control and Power, Speed and Rhythm (score 2.0)

    Control of power means the strongest power shown at the most critical moment of the movement through speed and softness – Control of speed means an appropriate connection between actions and changes of speed – Rhythm means repeated actions according to set rules and length of note, and flow of power.

    Example #1: too much power makes the movement look stiff from the start. Points shall be deducted if the speed, power and rhythm are presented with no changes from the start to the end of the lines of movements.

    Example #2:Points shall be deducted in case of stiff actions coming from a stiff body, A strong start makes it difficult to accelerate, thus slowing down the action at the critical point of movements.

    Explanation #6

    Expression of energy (score 2.0)

    Whether actions are presented with the quality and dignity that come from mastering the energy, size of body action, concentration, courage, sharpness, confidence, etc according to the characteristics of actions of the Poomsae.

    Eyesight, Kihap (yelling), attitude, costume, confidence, etc. All through the Poomsae based on the performer’s physique and characteristics shall be evaluated.

    Example #1:Points shall be deducted if actions are not vivid, connecting actions are not big enough for the performer’s physique, performance is made in the same rhythm all the time without quality and dignity, and eyesight, kihap, confidence, etc are not expressed perfectly.

    (Interpretation)

    Objectives in establishing the prohibited acts and penalties are as follows,

    (1) To secure the contestant’s safety

    (2) To ensure fair competition

    (3) To encourage appropriate techniques


    (Explanation #1)
    “Gam-jeom”

    1. Crossing the Boundary Line:
      A “Gam-jeom” shall be declared when one foot of a contestant crosses the Boundary Line. No “Gam-jeom” will be declared if a contestant crosses the boundary line as a result of a prohibited act by the opposing contestant.
    2. Falling down:
      “Gam-jeom” shall be declared for falling down. However, if a contestant falls down due to the opponent’s prohibited acts “Gam-jeom” penalty shall not be given to the fallen contestant, while a penalty shall be given to the opponent. If both contestants fall as a result of incidental collision, or in case a contestant who received a point with turning kick falls down, no penalty shall be given.
    3. Avoiding or delaying the match:
      1. This act involves stalling with no intention of attacking. A contestant who continuously displays a non-engaging style shall be given a “Gam-jeom”. If both contestants remain inactive after three (3) seconds, the centre referee will signal the “Fight” command. A “Gam-jeom” will be declared: On both contestants if there is no activity from them three (3) seconds after the command was given; or on the contestant who moved backwards from the original position three (3) seconds after the command was given.
      2. Turning the back and move away to avoid the opponent’s attack should be punished as it expresses the lack of a spirit of fair play and may cause serious injury. The same penalty should also be given for evading the opponent’s attack by bending below waist level or crouching.
      3. Retreating from the technical engagement only to avoid the opponent’s attack and to run out the clock, “Gam-jeom” shall be given to the passive contestant.
      4. Pretending injury means exaggerating injury or indicating pain in a body part not subjected to a blow for the purpose of demonstrating the opponent’s actions as a violation, and also exaggerating pain for the purpose of elapsing the match time. In this case, the referee shall give a “Gam-jeom” however referee may request IVR for clarification before declaration of “Gam-jeom” for pretending injury.
      5. “Gam-jeom” shall also be given to the athlete who asks the referee to stop the contest in order to adjust the position/fit of protective equipment.
    4. Grabbing or pushing the opponent:
      1. This includes grabbing any part of the opponent’s body, uniform or protective equipment with the hands. It also Includes the act of grabbing the foot or let or hooking the leg with forearm. For poshing, it is permitted as a quick impact and a contestant must disengage from opponent after one push. The flowing acts shall be penalized.
        • – Pushing the opponent with prolonged or continuous contact
        • – Pushing the opponent out of the boundary line
        • – Pushing the opponent in a way that prevents kicking motion or any normal execution of attacking movement
      2. Contestants should be separated following the referee’s “fight” command in clinch position, and if they fail to do so within three (3) seconds, Gam-jeom will be given to the passive contestant or to both contestants. Gam-jeom will be given to the contestant who is grabbing, holding or crossing the arms to opponent’s body in clinch position
    5. Lifting the leg or cut kick motion shall not be penalized only when it is followed by execution of punching or kicking technique in combination motion.
    6. Attacking below the waist:
      This action applies to an attack on any part below the waist. When an attack below the waist is caused by the recipient in the course of an exchange of techniques, no penalty will be given. This article also applies to strong kicking or stamping actions to any part of the thigh, knee or shin for the purpose of interfering with the opponent’s technique.
    7. Attacking the opponent after “Kal-yeo”:
      1. Attacking after Kal-yeo requires that the attack results in actual contact to the opponent’s body.
      2. If the attacking motion started before the Kal-yeo, the attack shall not be penalized.
      3. In Instant Video Replay, the timing of Kal-yeo shall be defined as the moment that the referee’s Kal-yeo hand signal was completed (with fully extended arm); and the start the attack shall be defined as the moment that the attacking foot is fully off the floor.
      4. If an attack after Kal-yeo did not land on the opponent’s body but appeared deliberate and malicious the referee may penalize the behaviour with a “Gam-jeom”
    8. Hitting the opponent’s head with the hand:
      This article includes hitting the opponent’s head with the hand (fist), wrist, arm, or elbow. However, unavoidable actions due to the opponent’s carelessness such as excessively lowering the head or carelessly turning the body cannot be punished by this article.
    9. Butting or attacking with the knee:
      This article relates to an intentional butting or attacking with the knee when in close proximity to the opponent. However, contact with the knee that happens in the following situations cannot be punished by this article.
      • – When the opponent rushes in abruptly at the moment a kick is being executed
      • – Inadvertently, or as the result of a discrepancy in distance in attacking.
    10. Attacking the fallen opponent:
      This action is extremely dangerous due to the high probability of injury to the opponent. The danger arises from the following:
      • – The fallen opponent is in an immediate defenceless state
      • – The impact of any technique which strikes a fallen contestant will be greater due to the contestant’s position. These types of aggressive actions toward a fallen opponent are not in accordance with the spirit of taekwondo and as such are not appropriate to taekwondo competition. In this regard, penalties should be given for intentionally attacking the fallen opponent regardless of the degree of impact

    When misconduct is committed by a contestant or a coach during a rest period, past the five (5) seconds of the round conclusion, the referee can immediately declare the “Gam-jeom” and the “Gam-jeom” shall be recorded to the upcoming round. However, “Gam-jeom” shall be recorded to the previous round if the action happened within five (5) seconds of the round conclusion.
