3 1. Introduction The use of the adidas Electronic Body Protector (EBP) sets a new standard in Taekwondo. It brings numerous advantages, but also requires a modified tournament setup. This tournament manual contains only recommendations and does not replace the EBP User Manual which is needed to install the system properly. For all technical support please refer to the EBP User Manual (CD-ROM/ or contact: Hotline: +49 (0)

4 2. Benefits of the adidas EBP
Objectivity, transparency for all participants Accurate measurement According to WTF rules and design Bluetooth Technology for safe transmission Calibration continuously adjustable to individual weight class and gender including vest size #0 Registration of up to four repeated hits per second Fight protocol available in case of protests Less referees needed

8 3.3. Combat Tournament Manager (CTM)
In order to use the EBP and/or the ESM properly a computer or notebook with certain technical prerequisites and correctly installed CTM software is required and offers the following components: Connection capability via Bluetooth Technology Selection possibility between competition or training mode Connection capacity with the tournament software Individual settings (Hitlevel, Rules, Update, EBP or Handscoring etc.) Individual match protocol. If a fight is selected and started in Training or Combat Mode, the combat interface (Please refer to 7.3. Visualization (Referee Optic) is displayed. From this point there is no differentiation between Training or Combat Mode. This interface shows the current score, hit values, penalty points, cautions and other data. Furthermore, the main judge has the option to intervene in the fight. Note: If a fight was started in Combat Mode, the selected result and the winner are added to the pool list data bank and the next fight can be loaded and initiated.

9 4. Tournament Software

10 4. Tournament Software The adidas EBP/CTM requires an interface with the tournament software in order to be used in a network. If not available it can be run in the training mode for the tournament. We recommend TAEKOPLAN as tournament software. The existing interface with the tournament software TAEKOPLAN guarantees optimal function for tournament use. The recommended software assures that all necessary specifics of the current and following matches are automatically updated into the CTM and all results are transferred back to the main server. A special software Update from Taekoplan is mandatory to run the CTM together with Taekoplan in a network!!! Contact Taekoplan: BudoScore Netherlands Portal Alphen aan den Rijn ZH, Netherlands For other interfaces please contact:

13 5. Hit Level The decision of the hit level for each weight class depends on the level of the competition and lies in the responsibility of the organiser in coordination with the referee comitee. However, we suggest that only the following recommended settings should be used to offer the best performance and results:

Only referees or staff members are authorized at the EBP placement desk and to handle the EBP  No other persons, especially coaches or competitors, may assist Three pairs of athletes need to be taken care of at all times: 1) Active pair (XF1) on the match area (one set of sensors) 2) Pair of athletes (XF2) for following match fight. EBP and sensors already in place 3) Third pair (XF3) of athletes waiting to receive the EBP Pair 2 (XF2) and 3 (XF3) must remain next to the EBP placement desk (refer to 5.1.)

Hit Value Hit Level Weight Class Round Score Penalties Competitor Match Number Remaining Time The screen is designed for athletes, coaches and spectators and shows all relevant data

22 One screen: Recommended screen size 42“ One screen must be visible from the competition area Placement on the same side as the referee table Requirements: 1 Audio cable 1 VGA cable 2 Power supply More than one screen: Screens back-to-back and visible to all sides (refer to 5.2.) Additional amount of cables and powers supplies depends on the amount of screens 1 Video-splitter 1 Audio splitter  extra VGA cable Attention: Assure that all cables have the correct connections for the screen and the laptop (e.g. VGA cable either male-female or male-male, depending on screen or laptop)

23 7. Referees

24 7.1. Center Referee The experience and qualification of the center referee is the relevant factor. He/She is the decisive person for the success of the competition. EBP System check: Confirmation of the functionality to all parties Check through a soft punch or kick on each of the competitors EBP Recommended to be done by the coach OK signal on the scoreboard is shown. For more details please refer to the EBP User Manual

25 Knee kicks Handling strictly in accordance with existing WTF rules Manual deduction from the scoreboard (if an invalid point was scored with unusually high impact) Collision or knock-down Involvement of arm or leg during a collision or knock-down could result in a point Manual deduction from the scoreboard Procedure: 1) Kalyo 2) Shigan 3) Point deduction 4) Kyongo/KamJom (if intentional) 5) Kesok

26 7.2. Corner Judges Main responsibility for the head points (ESM)
Simultaneous reaction within the time frame of 1.5 seconds according to WTF rules Recommended positions are the corners 1 and 3. In case of a dead angle the corner judges may move along the boundary line Body points are blocked during the use of the EBP Collateral observation on body points in case a mutual decision needs to be made Green button in the middle for On-/Off-Mode (Not to be used during competition!) The display in the middle of the ESM has no relevance except when using in Poomsae

27 7.3. Visualization (Referee Optic)
This area is only visible at the referee table This screen is designed for the technical assistant and the operator and allows the input of penalty points, warnings and other data. Only the center referee has the option to decide and/or intervene in the fight. A clear communication between the center referee and the referee table is necessary. For more detailed information please refer to the EBP User Manual

28 1 Laptop user (Staff or technical assistant)
6-8 power supplies (Screen, Laptop, Sensor Charging Stations etc.) If the laptop stands on a tablecloth, overheating must be avoided! Place a small piece of wood or a similar object between the frontside of the laptop and the tablecloth to assure for proper ventilation.

29 8. Staff Quantity Minimum 1 staff per competition area (red + blue vest exchange) Recommended: 2 staff (1x blue vest exchange + 1x red vest exchange) 1 staff per referee table (if service is not supplied by referee) laptop handling Workflow Step 1: Check correct EBP size The vest size is indicated on the starter card of each athlete Step 2: Check regarding correct set (Set 1 or Set 2) of sensors!!! 1) Active set on the competition area 2) Second set prepared in the pair of EBPs for next competition Good communication between referee table and staff is an important key for success!

30 Step 3: Sensor check: Only the green light indicates that the sensor is on-line Step 4: Check proper tube connection between sensor and inlay Step 5: Proper adjustment of the EBP (close to the body/no loose fitting) Step 6: EBP (including sensors) currently in use on the competition area must be collected immediately following each match Step 7: The third pair of athletes needs to be prepared (Step 1-6) Step 8: Repetition of Step 1-7
