WKF Competition Rules - Kata update :ADDITION TO ARTICLE 3 OF THE KATA RULES
In order to provide sufficient explanation of the revised kata rules WKF has found it convenient to add the following bullet point to Article 3:
ADDITION TO ARTICLE 3 OF THE KATA RULES
- If the number of competitors is 25-48, four groups are formed. After the first Kata the top 4 competitors from each group will pass to the second round. In the second round, 16 contestants are divided in 2 groups in 2 Tatamis (8 contestants for each group) and the second Kata will be performed. After the second round the 4 best competitors for each group (eight in total) will pass to the third round. In the third round, these 8 contestants are divided into 2 groups (4 contestants for each group) and perform the third kata. After the third round the 3 best competitors of each group will pass to the medal bouts, performing the fourth Kata.
