From this year onwards we are introducing a new system for the special techniques category which applies for both individual and team categories. 

Individual Special Techniques

Every competitor could choose the height level for every techniques – 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), he will get 265-20=245 points. In the event of a tie the Jury President will select one item from the list by drawing to be the tiebreaker. The competitor will decide how high the jump will be. The height level should be any above the minimum level – in 5 cm steps. The tied competitors will then carry on until the places are decided.

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 allowed to have another category of the same age group in the same time. So if the competitor is not there when called, he/she will get ZERO point to this technique after 1 minute waiting time.

Techniques will be performed with a breaking frame unit. After performing the three or five techniques (according to divisions), the final score will be obtained by adding up the points gained for each technique.

Team Special Techniques

Every team could choose the height level for every techniques – 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 chosen by the team: 265 cm. In case of a successful technique they get 265 point. In case of unsuccessful technique, they get ZERO (0) points. In case of half success (normally 1 point break), they get 265-20=245 points. In the event of a tie the Jury President will select one item from the list by drawing to be the tiebreaker. The team (coach) will decide how high the jump will be. The height level should be any above the minimum level – in 5 cm steps. The tied competitors will then carry on until the places are decided.
