Judging Criteria
1. The five referees including the main referee shall judge the competition. However, the final decision rests with the Head Judge.
2. Since the decision should be a majority decision, in case of IPPON, WAZA-ARI, HANSOKU, JOGAI, HANTEI, etc, the decision is valid if at least three out of the five referees support it. A decision not supported by the majority, that is less than three of the referees, or a decision supported by only the Main Referee is not valid. However, any of the five referees has the right to protest a decision and claim further discussions. In the discussions, a monitor (video image) might be used as a reference.
3. The weighing shall be done with the attendance of referees before the competition.
4. If there is a weight difference of more than 7kg between the weight in the application and the weight checked before the competition, the competitor will be disqualified.
5. In case a competitor cannot continue the bout due to the opponent’s YUKO WAZA (effective attack), HANSOKU WAZA (foul attack) etc., the tournament doctor may give a “doctor’s stop” after consulting with the five referees or the Head Judge.
a) In case of HANSOKU WAZA, the competitor who made the foul attack loses the bout. The opponent will be the winner of the bout, but will not be able to continue on to the next bout.
b) In case of YUKO WAZA (Effective attack), if the opponent is so seriously damaged by the attack that they will not be able to continue on to the next bout, they will lose the bout.
6. The Tournament schedule is to be strictly followed, but in case of an unavoidable situation, the Tournament Executive Committee Chairman may, after consultation with the Head Judge, decide to change the tournament schedule.

Kumite Rules
1. The time of the bouts is as provided later.
2. Victory is awarded to the competitor who has scored one full point (IPPON) or the one who has won by decision (including WAZA-ARI – half point) or the one whose opponent has been charged with a foul, or whose opponent has been disqualified.
3. The competitors shall enter the competition mat from opposite sides and stand by two lines, red and white, in the center of the fighting area, taking postures of FUDODACHI, facing the front.
Looking at them from the front (official seats), the competitor for AKA – Red – should stand on the left side (the one whose entry number is smaller) and the competitor for SHIRO – White – should be on the right side (the one whose entry number is larger).
4. The bout starts with the Main Referee’s command HAJIME and ends with the Main Referee’s command YAME.
5. In case of any accident during the fight, the Main Referee may stop the bout.
6. When the Main Referee makes the sign of “Time”, the bout shall stop for a moment, and when he makes the sign of ZOKKOU (continue) the bout shall start again.

Criteria of HANTEI (decision)
a) In case there is neither IPPON nor disqualification, the decision supported by three or more out of the five referees is valid.
b) In case of one of the competitors having a WAZA-ARI, the WAZA-ARI will be the first priority in a decision.
c) In case of no WAZA-ARI, the amount of damage will be the priority in a decision.

e) In case of the same amount of YUKO-DA, the referees shall give priority to the competitor with more techniques (punch, kick, etc.).
f) In case of the same amount of techniques, the referees shall make their decision based on which competitor has the initiative (fighting spirit, moving forward, attacking first) in the bout. The more aggressive competitor shall win.

JUDGING CRITERIA
Down below is a description of the relation between CHUI (warning) and WAZA-ARI (half-point), which of those two shall be the decisive part in different situations.
1. Judging Criteria (Chart)

2. Judging Criteria (Description)
① WAZA-ARI and IPPON
0 <   One WAZA-ARI   <   IPPON (Two WAZA-ARI)

② In case there is no CHUI nor WAZA-ARI, and the bout is close
a) Damages shall be given the first priority in judging the winner.
b) In case of no damage seen in the both competitors, the first priority to judging shall be given to the number of YUKO-DA (effective techniques).
c) In case the number of YUKO-DA is the same, priority should be given to the number of techniques (punches and kicks, etc).
d) In case there is no difference in numbers of techniques between the two competitors, the one who shows more initiative (fighting spirit, moving forward, attacking first) will win the bout.
e) For the final extension, the referees must make a decision based on the dominance of either fighter.
IPPON > WAZA-ARI > Damage > YUKO-DA > Number of Techniques > Initiative (fighting spirit, moving forward, attacking first)

③ In case of one competitor having one CHUI more than the other, this does not influence the decision much. The decision shall be made mainly on the contents of the fight. However, in case of a final extension, if there is no difference in the fighting between the two competitors, the one with one CHUI will lose the bout.

④ In case of a difference of two CHUI, the one who has got two more CHUI will lose. However, if he is obviously leading his opponent (on a scale of 8:2 or more), it is possible to make a draw.

0 ≧ Two CHUI
One CHUI ≧ Three CHUI

⑤ In case of a difference of three CHUI, the one who has got three more CHUI will lose, no matter how much he is leading the fight.
0 > Three CHUI

⑥ When one competitor has both WAZA-ARI and CHUI, the WAZA-ARI is prioritized and that competitor will win. However, depending on the number of CHUI and content, it may be judged like down below:
a) 0   <   WAZA-ARI + One CHUI
b) 0   <   WAZA-ARI + Two CHUI
c) 0   ≦   WAZA-ARI + Three CHUI
In principle, the competitor holding one WAZA-ARI and three CHUI is the winner, but if the opponent is leading the fight very clearly (on a scale of 8:2 or more), it is possible to give a draw.

d) 0 > WAZA-ARI + Four CHUI
Even if one has one WAZA-ARI, Four CHUI will disqualify the competitor.
