Overview of our WKF forms or Kata disciplines

Dear friends in traditional martial arts!


As everybody know, the next World Championship is coming up in November 18th to 24th 2024 in Alicante, Spain.

Today we have 6 categories for forms / Kata / poomse / Hyong / Taolu creative  etc.



To avoid any misunderstandings on the tatami or mat, I would like to ask you kindly one more time to read carefully the online WKF rule book for forms.

To see what is a traditional form, have a look here in two lists of forms. 

our Kata / Forms division is on schedule in Alicante too

Invitación e información completa en español

What are the dress codes?

When does the timer start e.g. for traditional forms with and without weapons ?

Any traditional form / Kata / Taolu etc. can be customized, but it still has to be recognizable.

From our official WKF recognized List and a traditional Japanese or Korean form or Kata!

In creative and freestyle:  also compiled (with parts of existing forms) form using traditional techniques is permitted.

What is the time limit in creative forms or soft style forms?

Int. Referee from Italy, Germany, Austria, France and Romania

Traditional Forms must be using traditional moves only. A traditional Form / Kata / Pommse / Hyong / Taolu etc. must resemble a traditional work, an adaptation will be acceptable if added moves are of a traditional nature.

Budo weapons for forms 1
Budo weapons for forms 2

Any so called “allstyle” form is not a traditional one!

For any creative forms are just the division 4 and 5 creative forms with music, with and without weapon.


Once again I kindly ask you read the online forms rule book , available in 4 languages!

There you will find exactly what is a traditional form, where is which time limit, what is a creative form and so on.

I thank you for the cooperation so far and wish all of us many traditional participants and a successful

You can find his short introduction here:
from the beginning of my practice until today … 
I’ve been practicing martial arts and combat sports since I was 8 years old, I’m currently 48, so I’ve been practicing it for 40 years. 
In 1993, when I was in the army, I created a method of fighting that I called Boxe Libre. 
in 1995 I organized the first Coupe de France of boxe libre. 
the Boxe Libre is one of the first free fighting disciplines in France. 
attached is the link of the last Coupe de France of free boxing that we organized in France. 
I continued to refine this method by going to fight fighters in Divers Federation and in different disciplines. 
Time and injuries caught up with me😀
Today I take part in workshops and I try to make as many people as possible aware of the beauty and richness of martial arts and combat sports.
