Introducing the US National Poomsae Team Homepage!


This site is a resource page for poomsae practitioners in the United States. As a relatively young competitive discipline (in its modern incarnation), information on how to perform poomsae according to the latest standards in a rapidly changing landscape can be hard to come by. This site’s intention is to help disseminate information on poomsae, help competitors realize their competition goals, and celebrate the many successes of US poomsae athletes.
