The 2022 Tul Jon-Sa

Come Join Our Annual Pattern Competition

Sign up for Our December 10 Tul Jon-Sa

It’s time to get us together for some friendly competition. On Saturday, December 10, 2022 beginning at 10 am sharp Mark Cashatt’s Tae Kwon Do will host a competition at our present location, Franconia Heritage Restaurant, in the Lower Level Banquet Room, 508 Harleysville Pike, Telford. We are calling it TUL JON-SA (Pattern Champion). It is a competition of patterns for all practitioners of General Choi’s style of Taekwon-Do, from our youngest white belts to our most senior Black Belts. We will have different age groups with four divisions: white belt to green stripe, green belt to black stripe, 1st DAN to 3rd DAN, along with 4th DAN and above.
Participants will compete in pairs and will first do a pattern specified by the judges. Second, each participant will choose a pattern to perform. The judges will then determine the winner. But as the competition format is double elimination, the competitor who does not win will be put in another bracket, with another chance for first place. When we have 1st, 2nd and 3rd place in each age group of each division, medals will be awarded.
All 1st place finishers in the gup division (color belt) will compete in single elimination to win the 2022 TUL JON-SA trophy. All the 1st place finishers in the Black Belt division will compete in single elimination to go home with another 2022 TUL JON-SA trophy.

Tul Jon-Sa Rules

  1. Double eliminations (every student will be able to perform at least 4 patterns):
    When a student wins the first round the student moves on in the primary bracket. The student who did not win moves to a secondary bracket which brings him or her back to face the winning bracket of competitors again. (notice 8-person bracket example below– defeated student name in first bracket A gets moved down to A line farther down on bracket and so on)
  2. Two contestants are called up side by side and perform 2 patterns:
    1. Together, contestants do a pattern specified by the judges, which will be a pattern no higher than the lower ranking contestant’s test pattern.
    2. Their second pattern is the contestant’s choice. The choice must be taken from the contestant’s highest three patterns.
  3. 1st, 2nd and 3rd place medals will be awarded accordingly.
  4. Pattern Champion is determined: All 1st place finishers in each age group compete with each other (within their division) until we have the four Division Champions. Again competitors will be asked to do a pattern specified by the judges, and one of their choice.
  5. Division 1 and division 2 champions compete. The winner is awarded a 30 inch trophy.
  6. Division 3 and division 4 champions compete. The winner is awarded a 30 inch trophy.

Females and Males compete in the same division according to rank and age.
Good sportsmanship should be shown at all times. A handshake and full name introduction between competitors before and after each competition is required.  If a division’s age category has 2 competitors or less– the age category may be joined with the next age category.
