Traditional Forms is an event blah blah bal
Team members must be synchronized 75% of the time during the form. (2–6 members per team). Creative, Traditional & Extreme rules apply (same as noted above) with the additional factor of precision of synchronization taken into account. Team members may face different directions and perform in any style arrangement they wish. They may utilize different rhythms and start times as long as approx 3/4 of the routine is in synchronization.
Competitors in these divisions will perform Forms (patterns, kata, poomse, etc.) traditional to a specific style of martial arts. These forms must capture the essence of classic martial arts movements, showcasing the traditional techniques, stances and footwork of the specific style. All competitors of a specific age and rank division will compete against each other, regardless of style. Emphasis is placed on execution of technique, application of technique, balance, speed, power, solid stances, and focus. Forms may be unmodified or modified from what a system or school considers to be the original version of the form; however, performance of a form voted by the judges as inappropriate for the division will result in a unanimous decision, of a "no score". Competitors should use weapons of a traditional design.
