As indicated in the Official Invitation, the arbitration will be carried out by referees from the Kyokushinkai Spain Federation. Specifically, the following teams have been organized:
Junior: 16 and 17 years old
Senior: over 18 years old
Depending on the number of competitors, the categories will be mixed or separated into men and women.
Since it is a virtual championship —that is, quite different from the usual mechanics— we proceed to explain the procedure in each of the modalities: kata and kumite. Both will use draws.
Kata: in the first rounds, a random mandatory kata will be selected for each pair of competitors —which will be shown in draws—. Competitors will have 24 hours to send their video. After this time, referees will have another 24 hours to make a decision. This procedure will be repeated until there is a winner. In semi-finals and finals, competitors will choose one of the free kata.
Kumite: competitors will submit a unique 2 minute video doing a shadow fight. This same video that will be confronting the following opponents until obtaining a winner. Aspects such as kime, technique, speed, aesthetics or variety will be valued, taking into account both defense and attack.
IMPORTANT: all the videos will be publicly accessible from the draws, which will be published on this website.
You can check all the details of the mandatory and free katas, procedure, rules… in the official invitation of the championship.
