Following many requests from our World wide WKF members members about forms. we get many inquiries about various competition rules in the WKF.
Today, the WKF has 10 various Forms disciplines.
Participants can in classes with and without music compete as well as with and without weapons.
Plus, there’s “creative and freestyle” forms. Here you can see a small selection of approved Budo weapons.
Das IRC – Internationale Rules Committee – has on request a list of approved official traditional forms for Japanese and Okinawa Kata.
The same list for official forms in Taekwondo ITF / WTF.
Scoring by 5 international WKF judges. The rating is performed simultaneously and displayed electronically. The highest and lowest score is deleted, the remaining three give the rating to one decimal place.
