Note: For Competitors competing at the Soke Cup – The organisers have decided to stick with our standard rules in fairness to all competitors. We are also wishing to seek further clarification on how the Soke Cup organisers are going to run the flagged scoring kata events before we can adopt that system here. It is our view that Soke Cup competitors with the right training should be flexible enough to adapt to what ever the final system used at the Soke Cup is. For the Kumite events our standard level of contact will apply with judges advised to keep a close eye on the contact levels keeping in mind the requirements for control as required at the Soke Cup. It is the view of the organizers, based on previous experience at Soke Cups that variations on level of contact occur from ring to ring so the onus is on the competitors to be mindful of what is occurring on their ring and be able to adapt as required.
