The report times listed above are the report times you should plan to arrive by. Your group will begin competition as soon as all students have arrived.
Life happens – We understand. If you do have an emergency and are unable to attend the tournament, please reach out to your studio manager and we can work together to find the best solution for you and your family.
Your tournament experience will vary in length depending on the number of competitors in your group. We suggest planning for approximately 30-45 minutes after the first round of your student's division has started.
KOMA Tournaments are conducted using a double elimination format. This means that every student is guaranteed to perform at least 2 times.
Students will be randomly assigned a spot in their brackets (see below) and will compete against other students. If a student wins, they will advance in the top half of the bracket. If a student does not win a particular round, they will be moved to the lower bracket where they have the chance to progress
In a group with less than 5 students – We will award a 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place award (as applicable)
In a group with 5 or more students – We will award a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place award.
Tournaments at KOMA are scored based on 2 criteria: Major Mistakes and Presentation.
Major mistakes are errors such as using the wrong hand/foot for a specific block, stance or kick or performing an incorrect move entirely. The number of errors is added up and the student with the least amount of errors is awarded the win for that round.
If both students are tied on the number of major mistakes, the judges will decide based on presentation. This includes criteria such as power, expression of energy, and overall presentation of their Poomsae.
For more information about how we score tournaments, please check out this video on LearnKOMA.com.
Your student will perform the form appropriate to their current belt level. Please use the dropdown above to select your student's rank and it will return with the designated Poomsae.
