Divisions with four to eight competitors will have one third place decided using the repechage system

Divisions with nine or more competitors will use repechage to decide the third-equal placing’s. 

For Karate, repechage involves the competitors who were beaten by a finalist playing-off to decide the 3rd / 3rd 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.
