    4th Annual US Open National Hanmadang

    The USTC is once again excited to present the US Open National Hanmadang on July 13 & 14, 2012 at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Hanamdang is a Forms/Breaking tournament only. Participants can compete in individual traditional, creative and weapons forms. There are also divisions for group & family forms. Not to mention Team Demo forms where the winning team will score a $1000.00 award with the 2nd place winning $500 and 3rd place scoring $250. Plus there are various divisions for breaking as well.

    In the past three years we have seen this event grow in a positive direction and it is our hope that we will see another year of increased numbers of participants and spectators. For those interested please visit the link http://usopentkd.homestead.com/. From there you can view the rules and other information and register. Hope to see some of you there.

    They have had a weapons division from the get go. The first year there was hardly any participants, but the second and third year there was a gradual increase in the black belt divisions. I believe this year we will see a bigger participation level in the black belt divisions and a slight growth in the non-black belt divisions.

    The only thing I do not like is that it is creative weapons division only which means you need to include 2 front kicks, 2 round kicks and 2 side kicks in the form. I would like to see them do a traditional weapons division as well, but it is what it is.

    I have done the kumdo forms for the past 2 years. This year I am trying to create a drunken straight sword form for the fun of it. :)

    No..no. Even the World Hanmadang held in Korea is KKW sponsored. WTF has nothing to do with it. The WTF sanction the World Poomsae compeititon.

    DISLIKE.
    You have to understand the Hanmadang to know that it is just not TKD with weapons. The division is not putting on your TKD uniform and doing a weapon, though there will be some people who do just that. I personally will be performing either drunken sword or one of my kumdo forms.

    There is a separate Traditional TKD form division (Traditional as in Taeguk only forms) as well as breaking divisions. It is actually a lot of fun and less animosity in the air like you get at the fighting events. You should come out sometime. I'll even buy you your first round. :)

    How can it be a TKD hanmadang if you're doing a geomdo form?

    It is actually just called Hanmadang. A basic interpretation of hanmadang means large community spirit or large community working as one. So while the main focus of the "traditional forms" division is based in KKW TKD, the other divisions are open to all arts. There are breaking divisions, self defense divisions, weapons divisions, and team divisions. TKD does not have an exclusive on the world 'hanmadang'. In S.Korea there is is an art hanmadang in Gwacheon.
