In order to give young kata competitors a worthwhile experience at the
KOI World Cup they may enter their own age category and the next age group
up. In other words -8/9 years old can also compete in 10/11 years old,
10/11 years old can also compete in 12/13 years old, 12/13 years old can
also compete in 14/15 years old, 14/15 years old can also compete in the
senior categories (but not in Veterans). Please note this applies only
to kata, not kumite. We reserve the right to merge categories if necessary.
KOI World Cup Competition Regulations 2011
1. All participants must be members of KOI and have an up-to-date KOI licence.
2. The member's licence number will bear their country code and will be used as their competition number in all KOI events. The competition number must be stitched or sewn onto the back of the karate-gi.
3. All entry forms and payments must be received by KOI HQ by the published closing date.
4. The coach or the appointed delegate must bring the KOI licences, two passport style photographs and a photocopy of the relevant passport page of all their participants to the registration which will be held on the Sunday preceding the World Cup.
5. Failure to be at registration on time will mean non participation in the World Cup.
6. In case of scheduled flights being delayed, a special late registration will be held the next day (Monday). Entries will be accepted only on proof of delay and at the sole discretion of KOI OC.
7. All competitors must participate in the Training Camp where they will be briefed on the rules concerning contact and the latest tactics.
8. The competitor's age must be the same as the age for the category entered on the day (or weekend) of the competition.
9. Each country or region may enter any number of teams in each category, and any number of individuals.
10. All Kumite contestants must wear gum shields and must supply their own red and blue mitts and belts. Females should wear breast protectors. Shin and foot protection is compulsory but need not be of WKF approved type so long as it is safe and within reasonable dimensions. 12 years and younger will wear body protection supplied by the organisers.
11. All competitors are responsible for providing their own medical insurance.
12. The rules are the rules of the World Karate Federation, with some exceptions as to weights, ages and categories. Preliminary rounds will usually be conducted according to the "Mirror" system. For children the rules will be those of Kobe Osaka International. (Absolutely no face contact allowed).
13. Each participating country or group entered must supply referees or judges to work in the World Cup. The actual number required is dependent on the size of the delegation as follows; Up to 10 competitors- 2 referees or judges. More than 10 and up to 20 competitors - 3 referees or judges. More than 20 competitors - 4 referees or judges
14. If they do not have a World Karate Federation, Continental, or KOI qualification, they must attend the Referee Course and take the examination. Failure to comply may mean that their competitors will be unable to participate.
15. The person or persons organising the entries for the group's competitor confirms that all competitors have been advised of the risks of competition karate and that they fully realise and accept these risks.
16. Current WKF rules do not allow women to wear head scarves. As a family group KOI does, however in order to maintain some uniformity we request the following; Competitors and those wearing karate-gi should wear a plain, un-patterned, white scarf. Referees, judges and officials and those wearing blazers should have a plain, un-patterned, black (or navy blue) scarf.
17. We do not normally allow spectators in the training camp but this can be hard on parents who have young children on the course so as a trial we will allow parents to purchase a ticket which will allow them entry on the understanding that no filming is allowed (non-professional still cameras are okay).
