Looking for some tips/advice. My dojang is running it's first ever tournament next June. We will have IKF rules point sparring but I also want to have continuous sparring. The issue is, I'm not sure how to set it up since all the rulesets I can find for continuous TKD sparring use E-hogu with the full ESS. I competed back in the early 2000's when "trembling shock" was still the rule for scoring but I don't know how many young competitors are used to this. Our school does not have any ESS equipment and the goal of this tournament is for kids, mostly less fortunate financially, to have a chance to compete without worrying about cost so I want to be able to run it old-school with just the standard student hogu. If anyone has a pdf or anything of the old, pre ESS TKD sparring rules I would love a copy. I'm also open to any tips and advice from anyone who has run this type of sparring in a tournament in the past. Thanks a bunch.
