T-UK TRIDENT TAEKWON-DO CHAMPIONSHIPS 2017
George H Carnall Leisure Centre, Kingsway Park, Davyhulme, Manchester, M41 7FJ
DATE / TIME
Sunday 5 March / 10am Registration
Competitor - £20 / Spectators – Free
The Trident Colour Belt Championships will be held on Sunday 5 March at George H Carnall Leisure Centre, Kingsway Park, Davyhulme, Manchester, M41 7FJ.
All students, beginners up to black belts, are welcome to attend. Everyone will be split up into male & female, age groups and grades. We would like as many students to attend as possible as this is a fantastic way to develop your Taekwon-Do skills and most importantly teaching you how to win and lose and be a good sportsperson.
Entry is £20 and all spectators are free as a thank you for your support. Registration will start at 10am. The competition will start when the black belt junior and adult competition finishes.
I know that in some categories for the sparring there is a big age range. For example a 5 year old could be sparring a 7 year old. What I can tell you is that the 5 year old that experiences competition will be a stronger 6 year old. We will also split the 5 to 7 year olds if we feel that there is a big height difference with the competitors. Sometimes though this is not possible as there may be (2 small ones and one big one) or (7 big ones and 1 small one). In these cases the referees are very experienced and will be strict with the contact as they will with or the categories children and adults.
Instructors should be aware that this is a semi contact event and the officials will be using the touch contact rule. Any excessive contact could lead to a disqualification of the competitor. Thank you for your assistance.
You will get the opportunity to compete in Pattern (bronze, silver & gold medals) - Sparring (bronze, silver & gold medals) - Flying High Kick (1 place trophy only). All children will receive an attendance medal.
To enter please fill in the form below and email it back to me before Saturday 25th February, earlier if possible. (TridentTKD@aol.com) Please pay your entry fee to your instructor or directly to me, many thanks.
Any questions can be answered by email or mobile 07974 649 015.
P.S. All junior (13 to 17 years old) and adult black belt divisions will register at 8.30am and their competition will start at 9am. This will give all our colour belts a chance to see the black belts competing and means that the competitors are fresh before they ALL help with officiating :)

When a competitor is injured, the Centre Referee must stop the match and call the first aiders. At the moment the first aiders are in front of the injured competitor, they have a maximum of 3 minutes to diagnose, treat the wounds and decide about the match and competition continuation.
When a competitor cannot compete anymore because of the first aiders decision and according to the decision of the Ring Council (Jury President, Centre Referee and Corner referees)
1. He/she is the winner if his/her opponent is responsible.
2. He/she is the loser if his/her opponent is not responsible.
An injured competitor that is unfit to fight cannot continue for the time/day(s) set according to the first aiders decision.
4. A competitor that refuses to accept the first aiders and/or the Ring Council decision will be disqualified and taken out of the competition.
5. If two competitors get injured at the same time and both are unfit to fight according to the first aiders decision, the winner is the contender that has more scored points at that moment. If the competitors are even, the Ring Council will decide about the bout.
N.B.: A competitor that causes a KO (meaning to be unconscious) or causes a concussion in sparring competition will be disqualified. The opponent that receives a KO or concussion shall not be able to compete again during the whole event.
Sparring competitors will commence the bout on the start positions, each with a red or blue sash to differentiate between them. Mouth protection gear must be worn at all times. At the command of the Centre Referee the competitors bow in turn to the Jury table, Centre Referee and then to each other. The Centre Referee will then start the Light Contact Sparring with the command “SHIJAK” and the competitors will continue to spar until the Referee issues the command “HAECHYO”.
At this point the competitors cease to spar and remain where they are until restarted.
An audible signal of time will end the round and/or bout. The reverse for bowing will ensure and the result will be declared.
In a draw situation, warnings and/or minus points are not carried forward. If a competitor leaves the ring they must re-start one (1) metre inside the ring.
On the first “SHIJAK” (Start) command from the Centre Referee the timekeeper starts the clock until full time, unless the Centre Referee calls for a “time out” by saying “JUNG JI”. At this time the timekeeper stops the clock until the next “GAESOK” (Continue) command is given.
1/ The start position for flying high kick will be ‘L’ stance forearm guarding block. 2/ There will be no line up.
3/ At the end of your attempt you must land in ‘L’ stance forearm guarding block whether you are successful or not.
4/ If the competitor hits the pad with the correct foot part (ball of the foot) then they will continue to the next round unless they touch the ground with another part of their body other than their feet.
5/ If we get to a situation where all competitors miss on the final round they will be given one more go and if they all miss again then the winner will be the smallest competitor.
