Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the L.T.S.I. has taken the decision to host the 2020 IX English TaeKwonDo Opens on line. The following rules will be observed at this event


How it will work –
This will be primarily a pattern event. The ‘Master Snow Challenge’ is also being held – this will be split into 12 year olds and under sections and 13 years and over sections. The Master Snow Challenge is optional.

 All competitors to enter by filling out the entry form on
 Once you submit the form, your payment must be sent within 24 hours to qualify
 No refunds will be given once entered
 The competitor must attach a YouTube link of their pattern on the form provided
 The L.T.S.I. will then embed your video on our website into the category you are in

 The competitor must perform their current pattern, or one under
 The competitor must be in their full dobok in an open space (preferably on grass, patio or in a hall)
 The competitor must appear fully on the screen (full body footage to qualify)
 All competitors will score:

1. 1 to 3 is classed as a standard pattern
2. 4 to 6 is classed as a good pattern
3. 7 to 9 is classed as a very good to perfect pattern

  • All competitors’ videos will be judged by 5 judges the week before the competition – the highest and lowest scores will be deducted, leaving the three remaining as the final score
  • All scores will be under each video the next day after the judges have scored it. Please note, a top score of 27 does not mean you have won – it just makes you a finalist.
  • The top three finalists will be notified by email to attend the live zoom event on 4th October
  • All finalists will start on 0 regardless of your prelim scores to make it fair
