Dear Tang Soo Do Students & Parents:

I would like to invite you to our 11th Annual Region 22 Championship. I encourage all of our Tang Soo
Do family members to join us for this day of friendly competition and camaraderie. Master Sharpe from
Texas will be our guest of honor; this is an opportunity to introduce yourself and meet this prestigious
member of our Association.

New to our competition this year is Group Hyung. Each school can be represented by one, three
person team to perform a synchronized form. Talk to your instructor about rules, guidelines, and
registration.

With this added competition category, we have made adjustments to the schedule of events. Please make sure
that you review the new schedule and times and plan your day appropriately.

Master Sharpe will be offering teaching sessions during the competition. Announcements will be made
during the day regarding times. All students are welcome to participate!

Think about sticking around for the end of the championship! We will be concluding the event with
Masters’ Demonstrations, Instructor Breaking Challenge in support of the Scholarship Fund, and
presentation of the Grand Champion trophies.

All applications must be postmarked and/or received by the Tournament Committee by Saturday,
February 29th. Be sure you adhere to the deadlines if you wish to compete. We will not accept any
applications after the deadline date.

We ask that all Black Belts who will be attending complete the volunteer portion of the application to
assist with judging, scorekeeping, timekeeping or other duties. Judges and ring assignments will be
determined in advance and posted at the competition site. All studio owners should report their Black
Belts who can be assigned to judging duties
via email to the Judging Coordinator (Master Mark
Jorgensen) by March 15, 2020.

I hope that all area Tang Soo Do students are able to participate and support this championship event. We
should complete the competition part of the program by approximately 5:00 p.m. As usual, there will be
no entry fees for parents and family members.

Tang Soo!!

Master Scott Homschek

Regional Director


IMPORTANT Championship Reminders

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

  • Change In Order of Competition

    In order to manage the length of the tournament day, we have made changes to the order of
    competition to better facilitate the flow of competition as well as the addition of a new event:
    “Group Hyung”.

    • 8:30 a.m. Judge's meeting
    • 9:00 a.m. Opening Ceremonies
    • 9:30 a.m. Group Hyung Competition & Dragons

      • All Gup (color belt) Divisions (Weapon Forms, Forms, Sparring)
      • All Black Belt Divisions (Weapon Forms, Forms, Sparring)
  • Friday Night Hospitality Suite

    Each year, the Tournament Committee hosts a Friday evening Hospitality Suite at the Championship hotel for all guests and competitors. The Hospitality Suite is a place to relax, meet up with instructors and friends, grab a bite to eat, and perhaps meet someone new. Schedules and division assignments are available so that competitors can arrive at the tournament well prepared. Whether you’re staying at the hotel or simply in the area, stop by the Hospitality Suite; you never know who you may run into!

  • T-Shirt Pre-Ordering

    Only a handful of sizes will be available for purchase the day of the Championship. Competitor t-shirts can be ordered with online registration; family members can order online using a separate form. T-shirts can also be ordered with the paper application.

  • Mandatory Registration for All Members of Creativity Teams & Group Hyung Teams

    As per WTSDA regulations, all students competing in group events are required to register for the
    Championship. When registering, students can select “Creativity” and / or “Group Forms” as an event option.
    Team rosters will be checked the day of the Championship and any non-registered members will not be
    permitted to perform. For Creativity, team members are considered any person on the competition floor
    once the music begins.
