Technical Videos

These videos were created by International Referee Raymond Hsu with the assistance of US National Team member and three-time world medalist Elva Pai Adams in August 2014 to help educate US athletes on the details of each poomsae. While some small details in the WTF rules may have changed since the making of the videos, the videos are still an outstanding resource.
