Request  today for your country USERNAME and PASSWORD !


To avoid any misunderstandings on the mat or Tatami, we would like to ask you kindly one more time to read carefully the WKF rule book for forms.

WKF Japanese Hardstyle forms

Today we have 6 categories for forms. Please register always your national team for FORMS referees as well !

To see what is a traditional form, have a look in the two lists of forms.

What are the dress codes?

When does the timer start e.g. for traditional forms with and without weapons ?

What is the time limit in creative forms or soft style forms ???

WKF Korean Hardstyle forms

Any traditional form may be adapted, it is still a traditional form. Also compiled, with parts of existing forms, using traditional techniques is permitted.

All traditional Forms must be using traditional moves only.

Any traditional Form / Kata / Pommse / Hyong / Taolu etc. must resemble a traditional work, an adaptation will be acceptable if added moves are of a traditional nature. Any so called “allstyle” form is not a traditional one!

Once again I kindly ask you read the rule book for forms – available in 4 languages! There you will find exactly what is a traditional form, where is a time limit, what is a creative form and so on.

I want to thank you for co-operation and wish you a successful World Championship in 2024 in Spain.
