Policy on the presence of WKF officials in Karate events (updated)

05/10/2016 19:26


Becoming effective from 1st of January 2017, referees and judges holding WKF or continental licenses may not officiate international karate tournaments unsanctioned by the WKF that do not follow WKF competition rules or that by their name can be confused with World or Continental Championships by using names containing the word “world” or naming the continent.

Above does not apply to single style tournaments provided that these are not named World or Continental Championships or World or Continental Cups.


Best regards,
Sara Wolff
Managing Director
World Karate Federation Headquarters
