Event Details

The Stanford Taekwondo staff would like to invite you to our 2019 Stanford Taekwondo Poomsae Camp. New this year is a friendly one-on-one competition at the end of the camp. Grab your old buddy or a new friend you make at our camp to go against you on the mats at the same time, to see who will get a higher score from a WT International Referee (IR)!  Due to increasing interest in acrobatic training from recent years, we also have added air tracks this year to help elevate the tumbling training session. The camp this year will focus on Dynamic Training (aerial kicking and  acrobatic) while continuing to focus on Freestyle and Recognized Poomsae.  Also, there will be FREE Stanford Taekwondo T-shirts with your size guaranteed for all Early Registration participants! And our special guest instructor this year is National Head Coach Ky-Tu Dang, who needs no further introduction as he flies in from Denmark to share his wealth of knowledge and experience with us!

Our camp head instructors MasterVincent Lo, Coaches Huy Nguyen, Anh Nguyen, and Long Nguyen hope to share their judging, competing, and coaching experiences to help athletes and coaches gain knowledge of the most current WT poomsae standards and better prepare for upcoming poomsae competitions. In addition, we will have ~20 other assistant instructors, who have just returned from the 2018 World Taekwondo Poomsae Championships in Taipei, Taiwan.  They look forward to sharing their knowledge and experience from the event with you.  Having been on the U.S. National Poomsae Team and medaled at several World Poomsae Championships and Pan Am Championships, these instructors will help facilitate the training as well as train alongside you to ensure a one-of-a-kind experience. Furthermore, we have noticed increasing participation in the Master divisions competition and have invited a special guest, a world-class Master Instructor, back to help work with our Master divisions competitors this year. Please continue reading below to see who our special guest Master Instructor is this year!

What do campers typically like about your camp?
Our poomsae camp started back in 2011 and has consistently been one of the biggest poomsae camps in America. This allows our camp athletes to enjoy training alongside with many top athletes locally, nationally, and even internationally. One of the most unique things about our camp is that our camp athletes have the valuable opportunity to train with many members and coaches of the U.S. National Poomsae Team.  See what our camp participants are saying:

What is the refund policy?
As much as we would like for you to be with us during the camp, we understand that emergencies do come up. If this is the case, please simply let our event admin know if you are unable to attend our event in a timely and realistic manner. We would be more than happy to process a complete refund to you. 

Are there uniform requirement for the camp?
Yes. All camp athletes are required to wear standard taekwondo uniforms (WT sparring V-neck or poomsae Y-neck).  

Can we wear jewelry, watches, etc.?
During poomsae competition, accessories (jewlery, watches, etc.) worn will not be allowed and may result in a deduction of your score. We also follow the same guidelines at our camp during training.

Can parents and coaches spectate, take pictures, or record videos?
The matted training area is for camp instructors and registered camp athletes only, but we have plenty of free seating for only the immediate family members of the campers. Parents are allowed to take still pictures only in between training sessions. Recording videos is not allowed at any time. Coaches, friends, etc. will not be allowed admission into the training area unless they also properly register as camp participants.
