LOCAL RULES

Each Olympic sponsored sport has an international language that allows competitors from different countries to easily compete with one another.  Just as the international language of fencing is French, the international language of karate is Japanese.  However - to afford the smoothest transition and training of athletes from different rating organizations - all points, penalties and commands at our sponsored events will be called in English.
