Referees

Chief Referee: Steve Coupland (ENGLAND)

Each participating country is to bring 1 qualified referee per 10 contestant. Accordingly, if you bring 8 contestants you will bring 1 referee, if you bring 12 contestants you will bring 2 referees.

Kofukan Denmark will engage local qualified WKF and national referees to ensure the tournament can be conducted in an orderly and timely manner.

All referees must hold a valid license, except for kata refereeing, where senior Dan grades with knowledge of Kofukan kata should be available to participate in refereeing.

We kindly ask each country to register their referees when requested.

Please note that there will be a small fee in case you do not bring the required number of qualified referees. This is to cover the additional cost of hiring local referees. Please see more under Payments.
