Karate-do is a martial art which emerged in Okinawa, Japan. Originally, it was just a group of techniques that permitted self-defense without weapons other than your hands and feet. Throughout these years it suffered some changes to finally turn into the current sport of Karate.
Karate competition is a sport and for that same reason the dangerous techniques are not allowed. A light, controlled contact is permitted, as long as no injury is caused on the face, head or neck.
Faking an inexistent injury is considered as a severe infraction of the Rules. The competitor who fakes an injury must be sanctioned (SHIKAKU). Exaggerating the effect of a real injury is less severe, but it is, however, considered as misbehaviour. Open handed techniques towards the competitor’s face are forbidden.
Kumite and/or Kata can take place during a Karate competition. Kumite is held both in individual and team categories. The individual category is divided into categories according to the different weights and ages. A Kumite bout lasts three minutes at senior male individual category and the matches for medals take 4 minutes. For senior female category the bouts will last two and three minutes respectively.
In order to score, a technique must be applied to a scoring area and must be appropriately controlled with regard to the area being attacked.
Scores are as follows:
IPPON: Three points WAZA-ARI: Two points YUKO: One point
A score is awarded when a technique is performed according to the following criteria to a scoring area:
Good form, sporting attitude, vigorous application, awareness (ZANSHIN), good timing and correct distance.
