Rules

The current WKF rules generally apply (English: www.wkf.net/html/rulesenglish.html; German: www.karate-dkv.de/wettkampf.pdf), however, there are some important points and variations to the official tournament rules which are explained below:

Kata

  • The tournament is open for all styles. The katas can be chosen freely. Other as stated in the official rules, there are no compulsory katas.
  • The kata may not be repeated in the directly following round.
  • Contrary to the WKF rules, kata teams do not have to show bunkai at the final.
  • Due to the limited number of competitors, mixed-gender divisions will be formed at the kata contest. Therefore kata teams can be mixed, too.

Kumite

  • For men, the following protection gear is mandatory: gum shield, groin protector and mitts in red/blue (please bring along!).
  • For women, the following protection gear is mandatory: gum shield, chest protector and mitts in red/blue (please bring along!).
  • Weight divisions can be formed only with a sufficient number of competitors. If this is not the case, kumite will take place in open category.

An elimination system with repechage gets applied at the contest, with flags scoring.

The clothing of the contestants must comply to the WKF regulations (article 2).

Additionaly to the EuroGames ID card, all contestants need a karate competitor card, which they have to pick up on the evening before or on the morning of the competition, at the times stated in the time schedule. Only active contestants in the current competition and their registered coaches get admittance to the competition areas.
