WKC New for 2012

1. New team fighting divisions:
This year we will separate the cadets and juniors into separate team fighting categories. Our new Team fighting divisions for both Boys and girls will be:
Kids, 12yrs and under. 3 fighters, -35kg, -45kg, +45kg
Cadets 13-15yrs - 3 Fighters, any weight
Juniors 16-17yrs - 3 fighters, any weight

2. Two Point Victory rule:
This year all point matches must be decided by a margin of victory, equal or greater than 2 points. This means that at the end of the match if the score is tied or if one fighter is only ahead by 1 point, then the fight continues until one fighter is ahead by 2 points. This rule also replaces and eliminates the current overtime format of a mandatory 1 minute overtime period.

3. New Team kata division:
This year we will separate the traditional team kata into Adult Traditional Team and Junior Traditional Team Kata. Only Adult competitors can be on the Adult Team and only Juniors, 17yrs and under, can be on the Junior Team. The Open Team kata division remains the same, where a team can consist of competitors of any age.

4. New Continuous Team Fighting Divisions:
All team fights both junior and adults are 1 round of 2 minutes.
Men 3 person {-70kg, -80kg, +80kg}
Women 3 person {-55kg, -65kg, +65kg}
Veteran Men {-75kg, -85kg, +85kg}
Junior Boys {-60kg, -70kg, +70kg}
Junior Girls {-55kg, -65kg, +65kg}
Cadets Boys {-55kg, -65kg, +65kg}
Cadet Girls {-50kg, -60kg, +60kg}
Kids Boys {-35kg, -45kg, +45kg}
Kids Girls {-35kg, -45kg, +45kg}

It is with the deepest regret and sadness that we inform you of the death of Deborah Womersley, a much loved friend and treasured member of the WKC, who passed away on the 7th September.

In her too short life she shone as a beacon of all that was good and kind. Her dedication to the sport and devotion to her students knew no bounds. No one encompassed the spirit of martial arts more than Deborah.

She will be so greatly missed by all who knew her and loved her, a beautiful person in every sense of the word.

Deborah's Funeral will take place on Thursday 15th September

12:00 - Meet at Ian & Deborah's home - 133 Barnsley Road, Hemsworth, West Yorkshire, WF9 4PG, where the funeral cortege will commence (any flowers should be sent to this address)

13:00 - Service at St Helens Church, Crosshill, WF9 4PZ. After which time Deborah's burial will take place.

This will be followed by a Wake at the Kinsley Hotel, Wakefield and a chance for us all to celebrate the life of the extraordinary and irreplaceable Deborah Womersley.

All our sympathy and very best wishes go to her husband, Ian and to her children Billy and Jade.

W.K.C. Rules

September 2010

Addendum to W.K.C. Rules 2010

Light Contact
Infringement in Light Contact will now be marked in the following way.  To make it easier, all referees only have to count in threes, ie first warning, second warning, third warning is equal to one minus point.  Second minus point, then third minus point is equal to disqualification.

Once a referee gives a minus point he cannot go back to giving warnings.  All warnings and minus points are carried over from round to round ?but not in Team Fighting.

The W.K.C has decided that for the next three years all competitors start fees at World Championships will be frozen. So this year 2009,2010, 2011 the competitors start fee will remain the same. This is in keeping with the WKC Value for money?policy and also in the light of the current world global financial crisis.

Remember with the W.K.C The competitor always comes first?

Please keep tuned to this page where if there are savings to be made without detriment to the sport, be assured the W.K.C will be there first and foremost trimming the costs.



W.K.C World Championships
NEW Age Rulings!

At a recent meeting of the W.K.C council it was decided
that it would adopt new age limitations on all categories
at the World Championships.

 From today any competitor bases their age
from January 1st each year.

In other words if you qualified in the Kids section you
stay in that section up to and including the World Championships. Juniors would stay in their sections. Everyone stays in their own age section. Of course
nothing has changed on the weight side. If you are
over then you go up in to the next section, but
the age limitation stays the same.

This applies to all W.K.C Disciplines Points, Light Contact and  Forms
