TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

Introduction
This is a system created by Taekwondo people for taekwondo family people. We use the scoring
system in all our classes, just like you. Taekwondo sparring fuels our passion and making the
application better and simple is our passion. If you are reading this document we assume you
already know what Taekwondo sparring is, and as most of us you know that in Taekwondo sport
tournaments each kick and punch should count. This application is not just a new sparing scoring
system or just any scoring system. It was created from the necessity of a low cost solution for small
clubs like the one where we used to train too. It was created to help taekwondo community, to
promote taekwondo sparing and to resolve the taekwondo clubs biggest issue of the day.

The first version was created and tested more than a year ago to provide an effective, professional
low cost solution with the same benefits and feeling, or even providing a better experience than any
existing wired professional tournament solution. The scope of this solution was to allow our
grandmasters, masters, students and parents to setup on a spot and at any time in any place where
our classes were a sparring tournament in no time and with the lowest possible cost ever.

As expected the “TKD Scoring Wi-Fi” system is composed from a few components:

 TKD Scoring Wi-Fi Server

 TKD Scoring Wi-Fi Client

 TKD Scoring Wi-Fi Remote Score Display

A. What makes our system special and unique?


There are two rules describing our scoring system.

- Rule number one: the kick, punch and turning kick are converted by click, click and swipe
click in points.

- Rule number two: it’s free for organizer and it’s not expensive for participants.

Taking advantage of the new large used mobile technologies the new, unique wireless taekwondo
referee scoring system represents a very low cost, professional and time efficient solution for all kind
or Taekwondo sparing activities. Are you a small club with a limited budget, a group of students
organizing an ad hoc competition on a spot at the end of the taekwondo class or waiting for the class
to start, or are you a big tournament organizer that likes to promote taekwondo and willing to
provide a free enjoyable and entraining way of spending time, initiating the spectators in taekwondo
sparing referee world and allowed them to experience what the referees experience before the
tournament starts or in the tournaments brake time, than the mobile taekwondo is your solution.

- It takes less than a minute to be ready to start a tournament

- No wires between controllers and servers and no expensive controllers are required

- Unlimited number of referees can participate in at the same time

- Follow the WTF sparing rules

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 4


TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

- Easy tunning for beginner and advanced referees

- Automatic updates for sparing rules and software patches

- Fully customizable

- Minimum configuration required

- No computer expertise necessary to setup the system

B. The system highlights


- Professional and 100% reliable scoring for tournaments

- The lowest cost ever for a professional taekwondo scoring system;

- It creates a new, unbelievable and unique opportunity for taekwondo family students to
have fun and joy.

- Supports unlimited number of referees; all students and parents attending or assisting to a
class can became a referee on a spot. You are a parent or a student, no more complains
about referees, you will score as a referee does. It’s you who decide to get involved and to
score at any time. Open the mobile, register the mobile with the server and start scoring.
You can finally do it, you can influence the score.

- Promotes taekwondo sparing in small clubs giving the opportunity to all students to
experience the competitors and referees competition world in a professional way.

C. Low Cost solution


Sharing the cost between the club and the students makes it a cost effective solution. The club is
responsible eventually to provide a mobile device like a tablet, a mobile phone or an old computer
(Windows, Linux, UNIX, Mac OS X, etc... ) as a server. Each student or parent who likes to get
involved and has an Android or IPhone mobile phone can buy the low cost referee client software
and use his own mobile as a controller.

D. Ad hoc tournament ready to go


At any time after the initial setup is done you should be able to setup and start a tournament in no
time. You already know practice is everything taekwondo is about. Like Taekwondo sparing the
taekwondo referee is the same, it requires some degree of practice for participants. Unlike
Taekwondo that takes years of practice, from our experience anybody can became familiar with our
system in no more than a few minutes and master the application in less than a few games.

Read before you buy any Wi-Fi referee license


To work properly, this application requires Wi-Fi and multicast to be available in your mobile.

Before you buy any license for the referee mobile please test your mobile using the trial mode to be
sure your mobile phone supports our application. If you are connected correct your mobiles using
Wi-Fi and you cannot successfully view the servers list in your “Servers Setup” menu don’t buy this
product.

There are mobile phone manufactures that do not support all Android functions.

Also there are mobile phone operators / service providers that can disable functions on your
Android or IPhone.

II. User Manual:


The application scope was to create a simple, intuitive referee controller with much simple and clear
instruction than any existing hardware controller ever used in competitions that requires zero time
to learn how to use it and no practice to master it. Our project scope was to have anybody, any
tournament attendant from children to grandparents to be able to start and use it on a spot with no
training or practice atoll. And this is what we did. There are just two instructions for the referees:
Tap and Swipe.

When the competitors kick or punch the referee has to:

1. TAP the red or blue area of the screen for a body or head kick.

2. Swipe the red or blue area of the screen for a turning kick to award extra points.

득점은 허용기술로 몸통득점 부위를 정확하고 강하게, 머리 부위는 득점부위를 정확하게 가격 한


것으로 한다.
Points shall be awarded when permitted techniques are delivered accurately and powerfully to the
legal scoring areas of body and accurately to the legal scoring areas of head.

득점은 다음과 같이 분류된다.


The valid points are divided as following:

몸통 1점
One (1) point for a valid attack on trunk protector

3.2 몸통 회전차기 2점
3.2 Two (2) points for a valid turning kick to the trunk protector

3.3 머리 3점
3.3 Three (3) points for a valid kick to the head

3.4 머리 회전차기 4점
3.4 Four (4) points for a valid turning kick to the head

III. Scoring
부심제일 때는 2인 이상, 4부심제일 때는 3인 이상의 부심이 인정하는 점수를 유효득점으로
인정한다.
In case of using three (3) judges, valid points shall be those scored by two or more judges while as
well as valid points shall be those scored by at least three or more judges in case of using four (4)
judges.

IV. Hardware requirement


There are no special hardware requirements. Like any system, it still has to have a basic hardware
that supports it.

As expected the two minimum required equipments are the server and the controllers.

As you didn’t expect, you don’t have to buy any hardware as you will find out below what hardware
is required. Unlike with the old scoring systems where you had to buy the controllers, the server plus
a bunch of adaptors and cables, with “TKD Scoring Wi-Fi” you don’t have to invest any money in
hardware.

A. The Server:
It can be a tablet, a mobile phone or any old Laptop. TKD Scoring Wi-Fi For PC is running in any
Windows, Linux, Mac, Unix machine running Java JRE 1.6 or newer. Before you unzip and run our
application make sure you have Java JRE running. Java JRE is free and can be downloaded from
Internet.

B. The referee’s controller:


Any existing Android mobile phone is a referee controller that can run TKD Scoring Wi-Fi Client. An
IPhone version is also under development and will be release shortly after Android release.

C. Remote Score display


Do you run a competition? Yes you do. Then you need at least one more remote display. And
because we need it too, we also created the apps for remote score display and we can provide this
to you too.

Our Remote Score Display software allowed you to display the score in any remote TV set or
computer display. Using your Google box, your mobile phone, or any dedicated brand-new
unexpansive Android TV Box (that can be found for less than $30-$40 these days) will help you to
display the score in a remote display too in a very professional and simple manner.

How many we support? The answer is how many you have. You can run a remote display in any
place, in any corner of you completion venue. Just turn it on. No special setup required.

D. Internationalization
Taekwondo wireless score is not just a multiplatform application. It supports full
internationalization. The server, referee controllers and remote display can use different languages.

Are you running an international competition? If this is the case there is no problem.

 The controllers can be configured in any of available languages for each referee.

 The server may use a different language

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 8


TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

 For spectators convenience you could configure a remote scoring displays in each language

 All stuff is already supported from the very first version of our application.

V. Before you begin the installation


Please read the following information before you start the installation and setup

1. Before you can connect to a Score Server system with a Mobile Referee Client, you must
register it with the Score Server.

2. The mobile license is transferable from one device to the other. If you upgrade your mobile
device you can reinstall the application and use it with your new device without having to
buy a new license. You cannot use the old and the new device on the same time after the
transfer.

3. The server and the mobile client can be used for a free-trial for unlimited time with a single
unlicensed mobile client.

4. In trial mode, all mobile referee features are available for unlimited time with no
restrictions.

5. In trial mode the server will accept a single (only one) unlicensed mobile device.

6. Any time you connect an unlicensed client to the server, the server will automatic switch to
trial mode.

7. In trial mode the numbers of judges that have to press almost on the same time a red or
blue button within a predetermined amount of time to score a point will be changed to ONE.
This is the only limitation for the server trial mode. Other way no points will be scored.

8. To license a referee mobile client device you have to upgrade your mobile referee software
to a premium version.

9. In competition mode you can have up to 8 mobile referees registered on the same time for
the same server (court).

10. Each mobile client connected to the same server has to have an individual license. The
system does not support connecting more than one mobile device with a same license.

Please note: Two mobile referees connecting to the same server and using the same license
will function improperly; the devices transmissions will interfere with each other, they will
overwrite each other points and will record an inaccurate score.

11. If you transfer the license to a new mobile device you have to remove the old registered
device from the server referees list prior to register the new mobile device. Please note the
old and the new device cannot be used at the same time. You cannot also use the software
with two mobiles client using the same Google store email address. The mobile devices will
share the same license.

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 10


TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

Auto-reconnection may be very resource intensive and can drain your battery much faster. If
you have constantly disconnections and/or network errors you should enable it.

12. Your 100% success requires a reliable WIFI access point. You can use one of the mobile. In
our tests using one of the mobiles or the server android tablet as access point proves to be
100% reliable. However you are not limited and you can use a dedicated AP or other
solutions;

13. Be sure your Wi-Fi Access point or firewall don’t block the traffic in for the following TCP
ports:

a. 12345,

b. 12346 and

c. 12347

These ports are required by our application to communicate. If the mobile cannot find the
server or cannot send points to the server please check your Wi-Fi access point
configuration.

14. As a good practice don’t start the server and the Referee Client software in the same mobile
phone or tablet. You may end up trying to connect to your own mobile server running in
your local mobile. This will be hard to debug it.

15. Don’t try to connect a not licensed Client to server with licensed clients. Will simply not
work.

16. Even if the system is very simple, taking in consideration the big number of mobile makers
and service providers, you can have unique unexpected issues. From our experience if
something doesn’t work and starts to make no sense during the installation, please restart
all your components and start again. A fresh start may save you few hours or days of work.

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 11

VI. System setup


1. Basic setup
The TKD Scoring Wi-Fi system requires all devices to be connected on the same Wi-Fi local network.
The Server, Remote Score Display and Referees client should connect to the same Wi-Fi Access
Point.

For most of the clubs for using up to 4 or 8 mobiles referees, you don’t need a specialized Access
Point hardware. Setup a mobile phone for Wi-Fi Tether is very easy. Please see the next section
“Using a Mobile phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot (tethering)” for details. It's no more difficult to connect a
mobile to a hotspot Smartphone than it is to connect your mobile to a home or Wi-Fi router.

Wi-Fi is a popular communication technology that allows mobile device to exchange data wirelessly.
There are lots of Access points available including basic WI-FI hotspot implemented by mobile
phones. Is your responsibility to choose the right technology for your club base on the number of
referees and the level of security you like to have.

We are not responsible for your data connection / network security and/or internet configurations and
unexpected charges that can be registered from a wrongfully configured network.

Wi-Fi allows cheaper deployment in spaces where cables cannot be run. Mobile phones and most
laptops are integrated wireless network adapters.
Wi-Fi networks have limited range. A typical wireless access point might have a range of 32 m (120 ft)
to 95 m (300 ft). Range also varies with the manufacture and frequency band.

Your referee mobile devices should be connected via wireless to the same router which serves you
server.

We assume you already know how to connect your PC, Tablet and/or mobile phones to the same
wireless network or WI-FI hotspot. If you didn’t connect yet your mobiles please consult your mobile
phone or Laptop documentation.

You have to be sure your device stays connected to Wi-Fi during the operations other way your
application can not send score points to the server.

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 12


TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

Using a Mobile phone as a Wi-Fi hotspot (tethering)

This information we provide is just a basic introduction for people familiarized with Wi-Fi technologies.
We do not support and is not our intention to teach you how to connect your devices in a Wi-Fi
network. If you have trouble connecting your mobiles with in a Wi-Fi network and/or you need more
information about how to configure correct and debug your Wi-Fi connections please consult your
hardware documentation, call your service provider or request assistance from a network specialist.

Depending on your model of Android or IPhone device, you may be able to enable your phone
“tethering” by turning your mobile phone into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot with up to five or 8 mobile
devices.

You can turn most of the Android mobiles and tablets into a portable Wi-Fi hotspot and connect up to
eight devices at once. (Please note not all mobile and tablets support these features.). Mobile phones
tethering functions are packed with security features such as encryption and access control.

For details please check your mobile device documentation or Search the internet about “Android
Devices: Tethering and Portable Wi-Fi Hotspots” and you will find a lots of tutorials about how to do a
simple wi-fi configuration.

For advanced users you can also create a network connection for your referees via Bluetooth or other
technologies.

Important notes and recommendations about tethering and data cost


Please note, when you use the mobile or tablet as a wi-fi hotspot, you share your device's internet
mobile data connection with the other referees connected mobile devices and they can use your
connection to browse and download anything from the internet.

To avoid unexpected charges from your provider be sure you stop your data connection(3G/4G etc..)
in the mobile used as WI-FI access point or be sure the mobile used as WI-FI gateway has no data
plan.

We are not responsible for your data/network or internet configuration and unexpected charges.

2. TKD Scoring Wi-Fi Server “for Android” setup


As you may already know there are two versions of the server, the Android version for Tablets and
the PC version for Windows, Mac, Linux, Unix and other operating system.

The server interface and setup menus for Android Server and the PC server version are very similar
but not identical.

Figure 1 - Server Ready for new Game

The server will always display the round number, the round time left, or the length of the timeout or
game pause.

After the referees registration the following operation instruction applies to the system:

 To start the game you just have to touch the main area of the screen.

 To stop the game you have to touch the main area of the screen.

 To pause the games just touch the main area of the screen again.

 To restart a game is different. You have to touch Reset Game button.

TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

Figure 2 - Server Round 1

The server do not requires any special network configuration.

Figure 3 - Server Timeout over limit

With most of the options you can configure you should be already familiar from the old taekwondo
tournaments and similar applications you been already using or seen.

All options for game setup follow the WTF rules and should be self explanatory to anybody familiar
with Taekwondo sparing competitions.

The PC server setup is very similar with the Android Table Server. It support any operating system
that runs the standard Java JRE 1.6 and up.

The install and deployment of the server is different.

The PC version displays a set of 8 control blocks that blink when a referee clicks a controller. Even if
the server supports unlimited number of referees, just the first 8 referees will have a feedback of
their clicks. The number in each block matches the index of the referee in the referees setup block.

To make the identification much easier the blokes blinking alternates the white and the yellow
colours. For example referee 1 will blink yellow and referee 2 will blink white.

As the server too, the referee controller setup is very simple. There are two sections of
settings. The setup sections are: “Server setup” and the “User setup”.

The server and user properties are easy accessible in your android menu phone,

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 22


TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

4.1. Servers Setup


Connecting to a score server is the first step in order to use the controller.

To do this you have to choose the “Server Setup” properties Section.

As expected you cannot be connected to more than one server at a time

b) Auto Reconnection
If the option “Auto Reconnection” is enabled the device will constantly communicate with
the server and if the connection fails it automatic reconnect when the connection is lost.

If the option “Auto Reconnection” is disabled the device will expect the connection to be
OK and in the event of a connection failure when the referee tap the red or blue button
the point may not be submitted and the error message will be displayed.

Knowledge Base

1. The score is never changing but the control lights blink every time for a
server with a single registered referee
Description

You are using the trial mode or you have a single licensed mobile registered with your server. You
click the red or blue button and the control light blink one time on the server screen. No score is
changing.

Reason

The most common reason this issue is if you setup the minimum number of referees to score almost
on the same time to a number higher than 1(one).

Solution

You cannot set this number higher than the number of referees you registered. Please change to
value to one (1) and try again.

User Manual (Server, Mobile Referee and Remote display) Page 29


TKD Scoring Wi-Fi (a unique Taekwondo Sparing Wireless Scoring solution)

2. The score is never changing but the control lights blink every time for a
server with more than one registered referees
Description

You have more licensed mobile referees scoring. You click the red or blue button and the control
light blink one time on the server screen every single time you touch your mobile screen. However
no score is changing even all the referees are clicking almost on the same time.

Reason

You can set the number of judges that have to press almost on the same time a red or blue button
within a predetermined amount of time to score a point in your server console. Also you can tune
your predetermined amount of time the referees should press the buttons to validate the score
points.

There are two most common reasons for this issue.

 if you setup the minimum number of judges to score higher than 2(two) or the total number
or referees;

 if your WIFI network or your server are too slow and they cannot process the information
just in time;

Solution

Our recommendations are:

For a server with one referee set the value to one (1).

For any server with more than one referees set the value to two (2).

If this doest fix the problem than start turning your response time increasing the predetermined
amount of time the referees should press the buttons.

Do a few tests using two referees and find your best value.

Please note a value too big for this value will produce an inquire score. We recommend using a big
value, maybe over one second when you start using the system if you have unexperienced referees,
not familiar with the system and start lowering the value after the referees start having experience
and they click almost on the same time.

3. The control light never blinks and no score changes


Description

You are using the trial or completion mode. You click the red or blue button and the control light
doesn’t blink and no score is updated.

Reason

The most common reason this issue is a WIFI network communication.

Solution

Be sure the network connectivity for server and clients woks properly and the mobile clients are
correct configured.

To open these ports is mandatory for our application. In order for the system to work property, be
sure your Wi-Fi Access point or firewalls don’t block the traffic for any of the following TCP ports:

a. 12345,

b. 12346 and

Description

This message appears because the License used by this mobile device appears to be already in use
for a different mobile. A Unique Mobile Client Access License that legally permits mobile clients to
connect to the Scoring server is required for each device.

received every single time you click the red or blue button is very likely to be a problem with your
server; verify first if the server is running. If it’s running please check if other mobile users can still
connect.

8. I still get the error “The server is not in referee registration mode!” when
the server is in “Referee Setup” Panel
Description

You try to select a mobile client with a new server. You opened the server “Referee Registration”
panel. The server is successfully discovered by the mobile client. You select the server and click
‘Connect’. After a few second you receive this message again and the registration fails.

Reason

When this issue happened to us we were trying to connect to a wrong server. We had a server
running in background in one of our mobile devices having the same name as the server we were
trying to connect.

Solution

The full guaranteed solution to make sure the server is not running in background in any of your
devices is to restart all your mobile devices and any Laptop or PC you are using. After you reset all
devices please try again.

9. The referee mobile registration with the server takes long time
Description

You try to select a mobile client with a new server. You opened the server “Referee Registration”
panel as per our instructions. The server is successfully discovered by the mobile client. You select
the server and click ‘Connect’. For some mobiles takes just 1 to 3 seconds for registration. The other
mobile the registration is timing out or takes up to 30 seconds.

Reason

One of the reasons may be Auto-reconnection function. The client is trying first to stop and remove
the current server connection. After the current connection is successfully closed (or deleted) the
client will start the new mobile registration.

Solution

If your client time-out during the registration you can temporary disable Auto-Reconnection before
you start the registration and enable it back after the registration is successfully.

protocols and it is possible to get working the discovery but to not be able to register or use the
controller after the registration.
