CFKA TOURNAMENT RULES

GENERAL RULES

1. Traditional uniforms must be worn. NO T-SHIRTS.

2. Proper discipline and respect must be maintained at all times. Any disrespect or improper attitudes will result in immediate disqualification.

3. There will be between 3 and 5 judges per ring.

BREAKING RULES

1. Wood is the only material allowed for breaking for all ranks below Black Belt.

2. Wood will be available at the tournament for purchase while supplies last.

3. ONLY competitors and board holders will be allowed in rings.

4. ALL belts below black are limited to two breaks. Black belts may do 2 or 3 breaks at their discretion.

6. All competitors with belts below black belt will be allowed three total attempts to break, not three attempts per station. Black Belts will be allowed ONE attempt. Again, this is TOTAL attempts, not attempts per station.

7. In the event of a tie, the highest score will be dropped and scores will be re-calculated, if there are 3 or 4 judges on the ring. If there are 5 judges on the ring, the highest and lowest scores may be dropped and scores recalculated at the center judge's discretion. If the tie still exists, competitors will do ONE break of their choosing or the center judge's choosing, with ONE board.

8. Separators are not allowed.

9. If a competitor has been eliminated due to incomplete breaks, the competitor is still able to perform a tiebreaker.

10. Breaks shall be judged based on their difficulty. Any competitors below 13 years of age must use pine boards that measure no less than 1"x6"x12" or 1"x8"x12". Competitors 13 years old and older must use boards measuring no less than 1"x8"x12" or 1"x12"x12". Any boards that are not 1" thick or do not comply with these measurement standards will be scored at a lower level than those boards that do comply with these standards due to the difficulty level being lower.

WEAPONS FORMS RULES

1. Music is not allowed.

2. In the event of a tie, the highest score will be dropped and scores will be re-calculated, if there are 3 or 4 judges on the ring. If there are 5 judges on the ring, the highest and lowest scores may be dropped and scores recalculated at the center judge's discretion. If the tie still exists, the competitor can do a different form with his/her weapon or the same form.

FORMS RULES

1. The use of music is not allowed.

2. In the event of a tie, the highest score will be dropped and scores will be re-calculated, if there are 3 or 4 judges on the ring. If there are 5 judges on the ring, the highest and lowest scores may be dropped and scores recalculated at the center judge's discretion. If the tie still exists, a different form will be requested. If the student is new (i.e. white or yellow belt) and only knows one form, he or she can repeat the same form. Otherwise, a different form must be performed.

SPARRING RULES

Foam dipped sparring gear for head, hands, and feet and mouth guards (unless you are wearing a face shield) are required for sparring competitors in all divisions! Optional gear: groin protection, chest guard, shin guards, forearm pads, face shield.

3. Techniques below the belt.

4. Backfists to the back of the head.

5. Sweeping (only allowed for red belts and higher). Please note for red belts and higher that sweeping will not result in a point. Red belts and higher who perform sweeps will be expected to then deliver a legal strike to the opponent before he/she hits the floor to score a point.

6. Sweeping against the joint.

7. Techniques thrown to the spine area.

8. Contact of any kind to the face & head for beginner belts.

9. Unsportsmanlike conduct ("showboating", name calling, etc.).
