Premier Division Kata List: (use the WKF Kata list)
NB: For NZ selection, only Premier competitors will be eligible.
WKF 2021 rules will apply in Kata with the following modifications:
Judging of the Kata competition for the competitors 13 and under may follow the old WKF flag system. The new electronic WKF kata judging system will be used in the competition for cadet age (14 - 15 Years of age) and older.
For Electronically scored Kata events at the NZ Cup, there will be elimination rounds where only the top four or eight (depending on the competitor numbers) competitors go into the next round. This is until the final round, where the top 3 from the previous two groups go into the final to give first, second, and 2x third places. Please see the 2021 WKF rules for more detail.
NB: Competitors must announce the name of the kata they will be performing before they start performing the kata. They must also bow inside the competition area before starting and bow after completing the kata. The competitor will be disqualified for failing to do so.
If only one Kata team is listed in the draw, they must perform their kata (and Bunkai for 10 years and older) before medals are awarded.
All Kumite divisions will be split into weight divisions, so please make sure your weight is correctly entered on Sportdata; otherwise, you may be disqualified from competing. If the number of players in a division is small, there may be combined weight divisions in that grade.
For ages 13 and under, techniques to the head can score, but absolutely NO contact to the head will be allowed. Any contact (unless by self-endangerment—Mubobi), including skin touch, will be penalised.
WKF points, warning, and penalty systems will be used for all Kumite Events.
For ages 14 and over, the WKF rules will apply.
The exception will be if there are only two competitors in a division, they will have a round-robin draw with the winner the first to two wins (a maximum of three rounds).
KUMITE BOUT DURATION for Male and Female
NB: The Trans-Tasman Kumite teams are for New Zealand and Australian selected teams. Clubs, please do not enter these divisions. If the AKF do not enter teams we will offer the following:
Addition to Categories (24th June) - Team Kumite events have been added for the following categories:
These teams can comprise between 2 and 4 members, inclusively. One team per club in each category.
A full refund of the Entry Fee paid can only be given if a competitor withdraws before 3rd July 2021 as the draws will be finalised soon after. Refunds after this date will only be provided if a Medical Certificate is forwarded to the Tournament Director. If your event has been cancelled due to a lack of numbers and you have not been reallocated to another event then you will be entitled to a refund for that portion of your entry fee.
