As everybody know, our amazing European Championship is coming up in October, 23rd to 29th.
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
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?
Any traditional form may be adapted, it is still a traditional form. Also compiled (with parts of existing forms) form using traditional techniques is permitted.
All traditional Forms must be using traditional moves only. Any traditional Form / Kata / Pommse / Hyong 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!
For any creative forms is just the division creative forms with music, with and without weapon.
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 European Championship in Wels, Austria.
