Privacy of the videos is in the hands of the uploader unless they grant the Federation permission to use the video.When videos are uploaded, the step-by-step wizard provides an option for the uploader to grant permission for the video to be posted – OR NOT.Showcased videos may identify the performer just as a child celebrity or actor is identified in their performances.Obviously, those who do not grant approval for publication will not be able to be one of the published finalists.
Selected performances will be showcased on the Soo Bahk Do Institute. There may be a special section for them, they could be grouped into a special subscription collection, or they could be individually marked with a badge indicating them as exemplary performances and mixed in with other technical reference videos. For example, there might be the existing TAC technical reference video of a hyung performance by a TAC member that is the official example of Moo Duk Kwan standards and there might also be the same hyung performance by a Young Warrior which is designated as an official youth technical reference performance exemplifying Moo Duk Kwan standards for younger practitioners. These matters are still in flux and yet to be determined.
World Moo Duk Kwan invites practitioners worldwide in the following age ranges to submit multiple video auditions to be considered for inclusion in the World Moo Duk Kwan Young Warrior Showcase.
