The WKF Competition Rules Commission has suggested that the duration of senior female kumite bouts should be changed to 3 minutes – in other words have the same duration as for the senior male categories.
 
The final decision on this issue will be taken by the Executive Committee meeting to be held during the 2018 World Championship in Madrid this November. Pending this decision, we have found it reasonable to notify all National Federations by this letter in order that coaches and athletes can be informed in good time about the anticipated change. This would mean a major change for the athletes affected and consequently to have the information well in advance before the 2019 season will be helpful for all involved.

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.

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.
