The Electronic Scoring System with joysticks

March 9, 2023 Leave a comment

After an initial trial of the Electronic Scoring System with joysticks at the past K1 – Youth League in Fujairah (UAE) and as a result of the reports of the said event, it is considered that the Electronic Scoring System shall still undergo some adjustments to optimize the system for best results.

Therefore, it has been decided that the Electronic Scoring System will not be used at the upcoming official events. According to the schedules all adjustments shall be ready by the time of the K1 – Youth League in A Coruña (Spain), where the Electronic Scoring System will again be in place for its use.

Taking this into consideration, it is highly recommended for all Referees and Judges to attend the K1 – YL in A Coruña, whenever possible, as it will be a great opportunity to receive detailed briefings on the subject and get well familiarised with the new system. WKF

Youth League / Series A Implementations 2023

November 9, 2022 Leave a comment

The new Karate 1 season will start soon with the new year 2023 and registration for the first Series A event of the year is in fact already ongoing. 

In our efforts for monitoring our events and introducing the necessary amendments, please be advised that the WKF Executive Committee has approved the following:

Inclusion of the U21 categories in the Karate 1 Youth League events 

The aim of this proposal is to broaden opportunities to these age classes, allowing them to participate at the Youth League events would give them more opportunities.

With the inclusion of these categories, most Youth League events will have to start their competition one day earlier (on Thursday), although this will be announced separately for each event. 

The limit for the number of competitors for Kata categories is increased from 96 to 128 athletes in the Youth League and Series A events 

Increasing the limit of participants for Kata categories in the YL and SA events will balance out opportunities for Kata competitors, who have one single category. 

The above measures will be implemented already for all events from 1st January 2023, and as a result, ongoing registration processes for them (Series A Athens) will adapt to these implementations already.
