Windsor Karate Club


There will be a Provincial level official’s clinic on Saturday November 30 at the Windsor Karate Club. It is
open to all KNS members brown belt and above who are interested in developing and advancing their
officiating skills. At this time, we will also be conducting Provincial level certification for levels C, B and
A. There will be a written portion of this certification and questions will be from the standard WKF kata
and kumite exams. There will also be presentations from representatives of the various styles regarding
the presentation and performance of their Kata.

We will also need people to come in and spar and perform kata for the referees. I would like to invite and encourage anyone who is competing or is interested in such, to come out and take part in the practical session from 3:30 -5:30. (see schedule below)

We cannot have a good competition without good officials so please come out and participate any way you can!!! Competitors should be in a gi, officials can be in a track suit or gi, whichever they prefer. You can download a copy of our most current WKF rules at the link below.

Both Kata and Kumite exam questions can be found here:

The schedule will be as follows:

1:00 – 2:30 Presentation from style representatives
2:30 – 3:30 WKF Kata and Kumite Rules
3:30 – 4:30 Written tests/kata and kumite
4:30 – 6:00 Practice with athletes and competitors
