Weigh-in will be conducted on the competition day to make it convenient for players. In view of this, players are not required to be present on the registration day.
Players must make the weight for the weight categories they have been registered to compete. Any player who is over or under weight on the day of the competition will be disqualified. There will be no weight allowance.
The grades for ‘kyorugi’ competition shall be based on the results of the April 2009 grading instead of January 2009 grading. This is in response to numerous requests from coaches to give newly promoted red belts a chance to participate in the event.
Coaches are reminded to produce grading cards or certificates of participants for verification during registration. If the cards have to be submitted to the Singapore Taekwondo Federation, coaches are required to produce photocopies of the cards as proofs of the participants’ grades.
(Please note that the above guidelines on weigh-in and eligibility will supersede all rules pertaining to the matter.)
