For ALL Under 10 years Intermediate and Premier Kata events competitors are limited to Development Kata except in medal rounds when Premier Kata may be performed. They can also repeat kata but not in consecutive rounds.
It is the competitor or coaches responsibility to tell the Mat Marshall or Mat Table which kata they will be performing in the next round.
KUMITE and KATA REPECHARGE
For Karate, repechage involves the competitors who were beaten by a finalists playing-off to decide the third-equal placing’s. This means that all medal winners, except possibly for third-place in a round-robin division, will have won at least one match.
The Tournament Organiser reserves the right to cancel Repecharge Events for Development and/or Premier Events in order to complete the event within a reasonable period of time.
Development divisions are essentially a kyu grade competition promoting participation for competitors in their first few tournaments. To be eligible competitors must be a kyu grade only. Competitors should be looking to move from Development into Intermediate divisions within 2 years of competing or sooner if regularly winning at this level.
Intermediate divisions are for competitors who are more experienced than development level but not ready for Premier level competition yet. Intermediate competitors should be using this period to develop confidence in performing their kata to a high standard. Competitors who are regularly winning at this level should move into the Premier Division.
Premier Kata divisions are open to any grade. However, the focus in Premier events is elite competition and therefore competitors cannot repeat Kata and the scoring criteria for Kumite will be more strictly enforced but still age appropriate.
Competitors can only enter one or other of Development, Intermediate and Premier Divisions. You cannot compete in more than one Division.
A Competitor can be in a different Division for kata and kumite as a competitor maybe very good at one discipline but not as good in the other.
