IMPORTANT: change in the WKF Kumite Competition Rules
To all WKF Referees and Judges,
Please notice that the WKF executive Committee has decided to immediately implement the following change
in the Kumite Competition Rules:
When a scoring technique is causing win by a lead of 8 points or more, the score should be awarded in full.
For example: If an athlete has a 7-0 lead and then scores an Ippon, then the result is to be recorded as 10-0.
Dear WKF Officials,
I hereby confirm that the change of rules is applicable for both team and individual bouts (round robin is consist of individual bouts), at all competitions where the official WKF rules are used.
On behalf of the WKF RC
