The judging of all Kata competition will follow the WKF flag system.

Development Kata Events -  are limited to Kihon Kata: Heian 1-5, Pinan 1-5, Gekisai 1-2 and Saifa.  Competitors can repeat each round

Intermediate and Premier Kata - any approved WKF kata including Development Kata.  No repeats are allowed for 10 years plus.

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

Divisions with:

  • three competitors will be run round robin with the placing’s decided on the number of wins achieved.  If each competitor has one win each then placing’s will be decided on total points scored.
  • four competitors will have a match between the two competitors who have not won a match to decide on one third place.
  • five to eight competitors will follow the repechage system to decide on one third-place
  • nine or more competitors will use repechage to decide the third-equal placing’s.  Except in 14 year Plus Premier Events where the final two competitors from the repecharge will compete for one Third Place in the Finals .

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.

EVENT DIVISIONS

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.
