Each club is asked to print the Secondary Schools' Registration Form (to be found in the uploaded documents) so each player can then have their entry endorsed by their secondary school.

  • FOR THE NZ NATIONAL SECONDARY SCHOOLS' KARATE CHAMPIONSHIPS and CUP - AGE IS DETERMINED BY THE AGE A COMPETITOR WAS ON 1st JANUARY 2022.

Repechage:

Divisions with three competitors will be run round robin with the placing decided on the number of wins achieved.  If each competitor has one win each then placing’s will be decided on the total points scored. If total points scored are even then total points scored against will be calculated with the lowest total declared the winner.

Divisions with four competitors will have a match between the two competitors who have not won a match to decide on one third place.

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. 

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.
