- State All-Black-Belt Teams — Empty hand and weapon Chung Jhoong Hyungs. One demonstration per team member. NOTE: If a team member does not have a Chung Jhoong Hyung, he or she can demonstrate two Chung Dan Hyungs, which is the equivalent of a Chung Jhoong Hyung.

ENTRY QUALIFICATIONS and SELECTION
Teams in a given area will be formed based on the following criteria:
- Skill and ability — for State All-Black-Belt Team members this is a function of prior State and Regional Tournament Medals. For State Team members, it is influenced by tournament medals but may include individuals who have not yet had an opportunity to compete in a State or Regional Tournament.
- Teamwork characteristics — For example, can participants commit to the practice schedules and work well with others.
- Moo Doe representation — For example, do team members exemplify characteristics of traditional martial artists, will the team’s demonstrations help educate others on the value and depth of Oom Yung Doe, and do the demonstrations show the strength of practice for individuals of various body types, ages, and conditions.
