REFEREE COURSE 3rd MARCH – IMPORTANT
Unfortunately our chief referee Peter Bibby has to attend an international competition over the same weekend and in light of this we have no option but to cancel the referee course. We will notify you as soon as possible when a new date has been arranged.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused. At least it will give people even more time to read up on the new rules.

In light of the recent changes to the WKF Competition Rules, the BKA will be holding a BKA Referee course on Saturday 3rd March, 2012. The course is open to any BKA Member who either wishes to take a BKA Referee/Judge/Table Official Qualification as well as Coaches/Competitors/Parents and anyone who wishes to learn about the World Karate Federation Competition Rules update which was implemented from January 1st, 2012.

The session is free of charge to all BKA members if you just wish to do the training course. However, if you wish to attempt a recognised BKA Qualification, a £10 fee applies to cover the cost of certification from the BKA

Assessments for the following qualifications can be attempted at this course:-

BKA Kumite Referee (Written exam/practical referee assessment)
BKA Kumite Judge (Written exam/practical judge assessment)
BKA Kata Judge (Written exam/Kata practical performance)
BKA Table Official

Anyone wishing to take the Kata Judge practical assessment, please remember to bring your Karate Gi as well as your £10 certification fee.

The course will be taking place alongside the BKA Kumite Squad Session & Selections at the following venue:-
Rothwell Dojo
Fox Street
Rothwell
NN14 6AN

Course Times:-
10am – 10:30am Registration
10:30am – 12:30pm Theory/New Rules
12:30pm – 1:30pm Signals/Commands
1:30pm – 1:45pm Break
1:45pm – 2:30pm Kumite Practical Assessments/Selections
2:30pm – 3pm Kata Judge Assessments/Kata Performances

I have attached a registration form for anyone who is interested along with a copy of the new WKF Rules, a new rules summary and a copy of the BKA Referee programme.

Although the Referee Uniform is preferred, it is not essential at this stage so please do not let it deter you from coming along for some free education on the new rules, the opportunity to meet other BKA members and have a bit of fun whilst learning.
