Individual Special Techniques

Attention! The new rules of the last year are still in effect this year! Please read carefully!

Every competitor could choose the height level for every technique – above the minimum requirements (see the table below). You can choose in 5 cm steps above the minimum heights. E.g.: Senior male nopi chagi – minimum height level: 240 cm. The height choosen by the competitor: 265 cm. In case of a successful technique he will get 265 point. In case of unsuccessful technique, he gets ZERO (0) points. In case of half success (normally 1 point break), the points will be deducted by 20 points, he will get 265-20=245 points. In the event of a tie the Jury President will select one technique from the list by drawing to be the tiebreaker. The heights will be decided based on the international (ITF levels). Tiebreaking will continue based on ITF tiebreaking rules.

ATTENTION! There are 5 techniques in the junior and senior female categories also!

The heights of the machines should be set up by the referees and their staff members in 5 cm steps. Every competitor from the age group should be there in time when called. In according to the competition schedule, it is not possible to have another category of the same age group in the same time. If the competitor is not there when called, he/she will get ZERO point to the technique after 1-minute waiting time. Except for competitors competing in two age categories, but they should not be in delay for unnecessarily long time.
Techniques will be performed with a breaking frame unit. After performing the five techniques, the final score will be obtained by adding up the points gained for each technique.
