3 1. IntroductionThe 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)

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 TechnologySelection possibility between competition or training modeConnection capacity with the tournament softwareIndividual 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.
10 4. Tournament SoftwareThe 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 PortalAlphen aan den Rijn ZH, NetherlandsFor other interfaces please contact:

13 5. Hit LevelThe 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:
