Tournament Information, Registration and Final 4 Points
The United World Taekwondo Association supports the spirit of Taekwondo competition. The UWTA sanctions Regional, National, International and Grand International tournaments each year, with standardized rules and regulations to ensure student safety and fundamental fairness in judging. UWTA tournaments include both Olympic style and Point fighting divisions as well as the Kukkiwon Poomsae forms.
Each region within the organization is authorized to host four Regional tournaments each year. Tournament sanctioning is required for Regional tournaments and all paperwork necessary to administer the tournament is supplied by National Headquarters along with mailing labels for all UWTA schools.
Black Belt competitors include a National Final 4 ranking system designed to support the spirit of competition. The UWTA provides a year long Black Belt National Point Fighting Championship circuit with Black Belts earning points in the National Standings for regional and national tournament competitions.
The UWTA conducts the Grand International Championships in Reno, NV in October. The Tournament of Champions Final 4 is held at the Grand International event with International titles being awarded to winners of each division. Regional Officer Meetings, school owner business seminars, International testing for 4th Dan and above, as well as other organizational meetings are held in conjunction with the International Testing and Tournament events.

Dear UWTA Members & Family,
The UWTA has decided to temporarily postpone the Spring National Championships, Black Belt Testing & Awards Ceremony. We will reschedule these events when it is considered safe and in keeping with public health recommendations. Our number one priority is the safety of our UWTA family.
All Black Belts who have pretested, submitted their packages and are on the examination list will be given a date of rank on their UWTA Certificate of March 27, 2020 to preserve their training history. A formal testing/examination date will be announced later.
In addition, the Sacramento Regional Workout scheduled for Saturday March 14, 2020 is also being postponed until a later date.
We will continue to monitor this situation and communicate with our UWTA members during this process.
9th Degree Black Belt
You must be training at a UWTA dojang that is operating as a member in good standing with the UWTA to compete in our Final Four Competition. In addition, your personal UWTA membership must be kept current during and throughout the tournament year. This will be verified 30 days before the Final Four Competition.
Anyone whose membership is not current on the 30th day before the event, when the records are audited, will be removed from the Final Four list on that day (under no circumstance will they be reinstated to the list during the 30 days before the event). Your membership must also remain current through the 30 day period before the event.
