Tournaments are controlled competitive environments that allow practitioners to display and improve their skills in a safe environment. Although some may think it is all about "who is better", that is not the purpose in Tang Soo Do. By eliminating this idea, we eliminate the unnecessary upset of leaving without a medal. In reality, competition is not just on the mats.
Students training in Tang Soo Do, as well as all other human beings, are competing with themselves on a daily basis. We compete with our bodies to lose weight. We compete with our mind to retain knowledge, and we compete with our intellect on our spiritual convictions.
Even in the case of a match against an opponent, we are not only competing against that person's skill, but also against ourselves to be the absolute best that we can.
Therefore, tournaments are a great opportunity for increasing skills as well as boosting confidence. Just as importantly, it is possible to learn self-control over a temper, or become motivated to react positively instead of negatively to outcomes one does not desire.
For all these reasons and more, She-hahp (tournaments) are helpful to students training in Tang Soo Do, and one of the most dynamic, fun aspects of the art. FMAC hosts tournaments every few years - so don't miss out!

IN GENERAL, THERE ARE ONLY TWO TYPES OF COMPETITORS
THOSE WHO WIN AT ANY COST —
EXCLAIMING VICTORY AND SCORNING DEFEAT
THOSE WHO COMPETE WITH AGOOD ATTITUDE AND LEARNING UNDER IDEAL CONDITIONS
Remember that tournaments are not just for a trophy. They allow you to meet new people, make new friends, put nerves to the test, and display skills. By focusing on these purposes, it is very possible to be happy whether one wins or loses. Most people think that the reward at a tournament is the trophy.
