1. INTRODUCTION
These Rules and Regulations are mandatory for all WKF Para-Karate events, as well
as other recognised competitions. The Competition Rules of the World Karate
Federation supplement these Rules and Regulations.
2. DISCIPLINE, CATEGORIES, AND IMPAIRMENTS
In Para-Karate only Kata Individual is performed.
There are three Categories for individual Kata in Para-Karate:
a) Wheelchair Athletes
b) Visually Impaired
c) Intellectually Impaired
2.1. ELIGIBLE IMPAIRMENTS
2.1.1. Wheelchair Athletes
Only those athletes with at least one of the following 7 impairments will be considered
eligible for competition in the Para Karate Wheelchair category.
Impaired Muscle Power
Athletes with Impaired Muscle Power have a Health Condition that either reduces or
eliminates their ability to voluntarily contract their muscles in order to move or to
generate force.
Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Impaired Muscle Power
include spinal cord injury (complete or incomplete, tetra-or paraplegia or paraparesis),
muscular dystrophy, post-polio syndrome and spina bifida.
Impaired Passive Range of Movement
Athletes with Impaired Passive Range of Movement have a restriction or a lack of
passive movement in one or more joints.
Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Impaired Passive
Range of Movement include arthrogryposis and contracture resulting from chronic
joint immobilisation or trauma affecting a joint.
Limb Deficiency
Athletes with Limb Deficiency have total or partial absence of bones or joints as a
consequence of trauma (for example traumatic amputation), illness (for example
amputation due to bone cancer) or congenital limb deficiency (for example dysmelia).
Leg Length Difference
Athletes with Leg Length Difference have a difference in the length of their legs as a
result of a disturbance of limb growth, or as a result of trauma. Leg lenth difference
must be at least 7cm.
Hypertonia
Athletes with hypertonia have an increase in muscle tension and a reduced ability of a
muscle to stretch caused by damage to the central nervous system.
Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Hypertonia include
cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and stroke.
Ataxia
Athletes with Ataxia have uncoordinated movements caused by damage to the
central nervous system.
Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Ataxia include: cerebral
palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke and multiple sclerosis.
Athetosis
Athletes with Athetosis have continual slow involuntary movements.
Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Athetosis include
cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and stroke.
2.1.2. Visually impaired:
Athletes with Vision Impairment have reduced or no vision caused by damage to the
eye structure, optical nerves or optical pathways, or visual cortex of the brain.
Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Vision Impairment
include retinitis pigmentosa and diabetic retinopathy.
2.1.3. Intellectually Impaired:
Athletes with an intellectual Impairment have a restriction in intellectual functioning
(IQ ≤75) and adaptive behaviour in which affects conceptual, social and practical
adaptive skills required for everyday life. This Impairment must be present before the
age of 18.
If athlete´s impairment do not comply with the three criteria mentioned above, athlete
not be considered eligible to compete and will therefore be excluded from the Para
Karate competition.
2.2. CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURE
2.2.1. The System
Classification in Para-Karate consists in an extra point compensation depending on
the influence of the particular impairment when performing the Kata. Expert WKF
Classifiers will assess during the Classification session the limitation in Kata
performance caused by the impairment.
Consequently, the classification panel will give up to 3 extra points with one decimal
number (From 0,0 to 3,0) to the athlete that will later be added to the Judges` Score
as explained in the Scoring section (see 5.2).
2.2.2. Specifications and Classification Session
Classification session will take place prior to competition in the same location, ideally
one or two days before its start. In order to participate, the National Federations must
include on the online WKF registration system the Medical Diagnostics Forms of the
athletes, as well as (if necessary) the Diagnostic Evidence Documents.
Medical Diagnostic Forms and extra testing at the competition are tools to provide
more accurate extra points to the athlete.
During the classification session, one national coach has to be with the athlete all the
time. In case of an athlete with Intellectual Disabilities, one member of his inner circle
will be also allowed to accompany him if necessary.
As for wheelchair athletes, they will attend to the classification session with the same
wheelchair that will later be used during the competition. If straps and/or shoes are
used for the competition, they have to be used in classification, too.
Concerning athletes with visual impairments, no extra testing will be performed during
the classification session. Nevertheless the athletes have to show up to the testing for
verification of their disability. Extra points will be given based on the Medical
Diagnostic Form.
2.3. MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC FORMS
Medical Diagnostic Forms (MDF) are documents created by the WKF to effectively
summarize diagnostic information of the para-athlete. This document will provide
valuable information to WKF classifiers to better understand the deserved extra points
that will later be given.
In case of Wheelchair Athletes and Visually Impaired Athletes the MDF has to be
completed by a registered Medical Doctor.
In case of athletes with intellectual disabilities, the MDF´s will be must be completed
by the athlete’s personal/primary coach.
2.4. RECLASSIFICATION PROCEDURES
An official WKF classifier may reclassify athletes at any time during the competition.
A reclassification may occur in following cases:
a) if the classifier notices a difference in the performance of the athlete between the
classification session and the competition.
b) in the event of an official protest granted
In the case of an athlete being reclassified during the competition by the decision of
the classifier, the extra points achieved in the competition will be added to points that
correspond to the newest assessment made by the official WKF classifier.
Reclassification may result in a positive or negative result.
If an athlete is suspected to have intentionally deceived the classifier, the athlete will
be disqualified immediately.
3. KATA COMPETITION AREA
1. The competition area must be flat and devoid of hazard.
2. The competition area must be of sufficient size to permit the uninterrupted
performance of the Kata. The WKF able-bodied competition rules for Kata apply.

II. Athletes must have the opportunity to come to the hall, extra testing rooms, doping
controls, the warm up area, dressing area, the toilets and spectators’ area without any
barriers, especially for wheelchair athletes and visually impaired athletes. This applies
in particular to competition areas on platforms, which are also to be made easily
accessible for wheelchair athletes by means of a safe, drivable ramp.
III. Should final matches or competitions take place on a platform, the coaches will bring
the athletes on the platform via steps or a ramp. There they are taken to the
competition perimeter by WKF officials and supervised by them during the
competition for safety reasons. Coaches have to sit on the coach chairs during the
bout. After the bout the athletes will be taken back to the departure of the platform by
the WKF Officials and guided from the platform by the coaches.

of an individual performance in separate male and female divisions.
2. A point system with best score ranking will apply.
3. Contestants can perform the same Kata in each round repetition is therefore allowed.
4. The score list will be entered before the tournament, and it will consist of classification
information along with the corresponding number of additional points for each
competitor, according to the official list of competitors. Before each round the Kata
the athlete wants to show is entered in the list.
5. The best two in each group at the first round will form a new pool for the finals for the
First and Third place. The first of pool A and first of pool B will compete in the finals
for first place. The second of pool A and the second of pool B will compete in the
finals for third place. As a result, there will be one gold medal, one silver medal and
one bronze medal. The athlete, who gets fourth place, will get a diploma after the
official medal ceremony as a reward to his achievement.
6. In the bout for medals, Aka first shows his Kata and is then evaluated, then Ao
branches his Kata and is then evaluated. The result will then be officially announced.
7. The medals will be awarded in the usual way.
EXPLANATION:
I. The personal coach does not have to have an official license but has to obey the
WKF rules for coaches as the official coach has to.

coordination with the Organizing Commission.
EXPLANATION:
I. The Chief Judge will sit in the centre position facing the contestants and the other six
Judges will be seated at the corners of the competition area and the left and right side
centered to the competition area.
II. Each Judge will have a scoreboard with numbers and decimal numbers from 0 to 9
or, if electronic scoreboards are being used, an input terminal (see Appendix 2).
8. KATA PERFORMED
1. The Kata is freely selectable from the WKF Kata list as shown in the WKF able-
bodied Competition Rules
2. Deviations may be acceptable due to the type of disability
3. Slight variations as taught by the contestant’s style (ryu-ha) of Karate will be
permitted.
8.1. ASSESSMENT
1. In assessing the performance of a contestant, the Judges will evaluate the
performance based on equal weight to both of the major criteria (technical
performance and athletic performance) as described in the able-bodied Competition
Rules of the WKF for Kata.
2. The performance is evaluated from the bow starting the Kata until the bow ending the
Kata.
3. The two major criteria are to be given equal importance in the evaluation of the
performance.
8.2. SCORING
1. The seven Judges give their score based on the assessment. The highest and lowest
score will not be taken into account in the calculation of the result.
2. Scoring average in:
a) First round: 7,0
b) Finals: 8,0
3. Extra Point system:
After the classification of the degree of disability by the classification panel, up to 3
extra points will be added to the Judge evaluation respectively, taking into account
how the impairment affects Kata performance (see 6.2.1).
8.3. DISQUALIFICATION
A competitor or a team of competitors may be disqualified for any of the following
reasons:
a) Failing to bow at the beginning and completion of the Kata performance.
b) A distinct pause or stop in the performance.
c) Interference with the function of the judges (such as the judge having to move for
safety reasons or making physical contact with a judge).
d) Belt falling off during the performance.
e) Failure to follow the instructions of the Chief Judge or any other misconduct
8.4. FOULS

above criteria.
1. Belt coming loose to the extent that it is coming off the hips during the performance.
2. Time wasting, including prolonged marching, excessive bowing, or prolonged pause
before starting the performance.
EXPLANATION:
I. Kata is not a dance or theatrical performance. It must adhere to the traditional values
and principles. It must be realistic in fighting terms and display concentration, power,
and potential impact in its techniques. It must demonstrate strength, power, and
speed — as well as grace, rhythm, and balance.
II. To the technical performance wheelchair manipulation and fluidity of techniques
should be taken in account, too.
III. Deviations may be for example alternative techniques for non-executable techniques
(hand techniques or raising the wheelchair instead of kicks for wheelchair athletes,
Hikite to wheelchair wheel instead of to hip) or turns instead of jumps for athletes of
all categories.
IV. It is the sole responsibility of the coach to ensure that the Kata as notified to the score
table is appropriate for that particular round.
V. Reasons for disqualification and the considering of fouls in the evaluation should
treated with care, as some clinical pictures can cause or influence certain behaviours
or problems may occur. The judges should be given the possibility of a meeting
(Shugo) here, without necessarily resulting in a consequence.
9. OPERATION OF BOUTS
1. At the start of each bout and in answer to his name, the athlete wearing a blue (male
contestants) or red belt (female contestants) will line up at the middle of the match
area perimeter facing the Chief Kata Judge. He may be guided to this position by the
coach. Then the athlete moves to the starting position by himself which is within the
perimeter of the competition area, the coach is not allowed to enter the perimeter.
The athlete will bow and make a clear announcement of the name of the Kata that is
to be performed, and begin the Kata. On completion of the Kata, the athlete will after
bowing at the end of the Kata await the decision of the panel.
2. The Chief Judge will call for a decision (HANTEI) and blow a two-tone blast on the
whistle whereupon the Judges will cast their scores in direction to the table. The
points are then announced one after the other loudly and clearly audibly. The
announcer points with stretched arm and hand to the respective scoreboards while
announcing the score. In the moment the scores are announced one after the other
the scoreboards are turned 180 degrees to the viewers side. Then the athlete bows
again and returns to the match area perimeter to leave the competition area. The
coach may fetch him after the athlete left the perimeter.
3. If the Chief Judge is of the opinion that a competitor should be disqualified, he/she
may call the other Judges in order to reach a verdict.
4. Individual contestants that do not present themselves when called will be disqualified
(KIKEN) from that category. Disqualification by KIKEN means that the contestants are
disqualified from that category although it does not affect participation in another
category.
5. When announcing disqualification by KIKEN the Chief Judge will be required to signal
by pointing, with the red flag towards the starting position of the contestant in
question, announcing clearly “KIKEN”.
6. If contestants, which may proceed to the next round, have the same sum of scores
the lowest given, not deleted score counts. If they are the same the highest given
score is considered.
7. If two athletes in a pool have an identical score and both are standing around the
move into the next round, a jump-off takes place. Here both athletes compete against
each other again and are judged by the judges as usual and the scoring is calculated
according to the rules. The judges are required to cast a clear vote. A repetition of the
Kata is allowed for the athletes.
10. OFFICIAL PROTESTS
Official protests in Kata competition and in classification matters will follow the same
procedure as described under the WKF able-bodied Kata Rules Article 7: Official
Protest and Appendix 10: Official Protest Form
Complaints outside the official protest procedures are not accepted.
11. ACCREDITATION OF ATHLETES
1. Athletes have to be minimum 18 years old.
2. They have to be registered through their National Federation.
3. The registration has to be made on the WKF online registration system.
4. The registration, together with the MDF, the TUE approved by the National Anti-
Doping organization, and a coach must be uploaded on the WKF online registration
system. Therapeutic Use Exemptions (TUE) are to be submitted and approved by the
corresponding National Anti-Doping Organization and then submitted to the WKF
Anti-Doping Manager.
5. One additional personal coach can be registered per athlete.
6. The registration will initially remain as “pending”, subject to a medical expert
reviewing the entry (within max. two days)
7. There must be at least 4 athletes registered per category in order for the category to
be present at the Championships. However, the Organizing Committee may make
exceptions if the number of participants is not reached.
8. One responsible person of the athletes’ NF has to collect the accreditation at the
accreditation room within the established date and time
9. After registration the classification session of the para-athletes takes place to
determine the extra score. The participation at the classification session is obligatory,

  • 3. 1. INTRODUCTION These Rules and Regulations are mandatory for all WKF Para-Karate events, as well as other recognised competitions. The Competition Rules of the World Karate Federation supplement these Rules and Regulations. 2. DISCIPLINE, CATEGORIES, AND IMPAIRMENTS In Para-Karate only Kata Individual is performed. There are three Categories for individual Kata in Para-Karate: a) Wheelchair Athletes b) Visually Impaired c) Intellectually Impaired 2.1. ELIGIBLE IMPAIRMENTS 2.1.1. Wheelchair Athletes Only those athletes with at least one of the following 7 impairments will be considered eligible for competition in the Para Karate Wheelchair category. Impaired Muscle Power Athletes with Impaired Muscle Power have a Health Condition that either reduces or eliminates their ability to voluntarily contract their muscles in order to move or to generate force. Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Impaired Muscle Power include spinal cord injury (complete or incomplete, tetra-or paraplegia or paraparesis), muscular dystrophy, post-polio syndrome and spina bifida. Impaired Passive Range of Movement Athletes with Impaired Passive Range of Movement have a restriction or a lack of passive movement in one or more joints. Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Impaired Passive Range of Movement include arthrogryposis and contracture resulting from chronic joint immobilisation or trauma affecting a joint. Limb Deficiency Athletes with Limb Deficiency have total or partial absence of bones or joints as a consequence of trauma (for example traumatic amputation), illness (for example amputation due to bone cancer) or congenital limb deficiency (for example dysmelia). Leg Length Difference Athletes with Leg Length Difference have a difference in the length of their legs as a result of a disturbance of limb growth, or as a result of trauma. Leg lenth difference must be at least 7cm. Hypertonia Athletes with hypertonia have an increase in muscle tension and a reduced ability of a muscle to stretch caused by damage to the central nervous system. Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Hypertonia include cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and stroke. Ataxia
  • 4. Athletes with Ataxia have uncoordinated movements caused by damage to the central nervous system. Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Ataxia include: cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury, stroke and multiple sclerosis. Athetosis Athletes with Athetosis have continual slow involuntary movements. Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Athetosis include cerebral palsy, traumatic brain injury and stroke. 2.1.2. Visually impaired: Athletes with Vision Impairment have reduced or no vision caused by damage to the eye structure, optical nerves or optical pathways, or visual cortex of the brain. Examples of an Underlying Health Condition that may lead to Vision Impairment include retinitis pigmentosa and diabetic retinopathy. 2.1.3. Intellectually Impaired: Athletes with an intellectual Impairment have a restriction in intellectual functioning (IQ ≤75) and adaptive behaviour in which affects conceptual, social and practical adaptive skills required for everyday life. This Impairment must be present before the age of 18. If athlete´s impairment do not comply with the three criteria mentioned above, athlete not be considered eligible to compete and will therefore be excluded from the Para Karate competition. 2.2. CLASSIFICATION PROCEDURE 2.2.1. The System Classification in Para-Karate consists in an extra point compensation depending on the influence of the particular impairment when performing the Kata. Expert WKF Classifiers will assess during the Classification session the limitation in Kata performance caused by the impairment. Consequently, the classification panel will give up to 3 extra points with one decimal number (From 0,0 to 3,0) to the athlete that will later be added to the Judges` Score as explained in the Scoring section (see 5.2). 2.2.2. Specifications and Classification Session Classification session will take place prior to competition in the same location, ideally one or two days before its start. In order to participate, the National Federations must include on the online WKF registration system the Medical Diagnostics Forms of the athletes, as well as (if necessary) the Diagnostic Evidence Documents. Medical Diagnostic Forms and extra testing at the competition are tools to provide more accurate extra points to the athlete. During the classification session, one national coach has to be with the athlete all the time. In case of an athlete with Intellectual Disabilities, one member of his inner circle will be also allowed to accompany him if necessary. As for wheelchair athletes, they will attend to the classification session with the same wheelchair that will later be used during the competition. If straps and/or shoes are used for the competition, they have to be used in classification, too.
  • 5. Concerning athletes with visual impairments, no extra testing will be performed during the classification session. Nevertheless the athletes have to show up to the testing for verification of their disability. Extra points will be given based on the Medical Diagnostic Form. 2.3. MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC FORMS Medical Diagnostic Forms (MDF) are documents created by the WKF to effectively summarize diagnostic information of the para-athlete. This document will provide valuable information to WKF classifiers to better understand the deserved extra points that will later be given.
