    How does the scoring work with non contact?

    Glad it went well for you! Was the tournament sparring only?

    Yeah it was only sparring. Wish there was a forms division as well! But just the noncontact in the morning, and full contact/knockdown in the afternoon.
    There are four corner judges and one head judge. I believe the judges have clickers. An ippon (full point) is awarded for a clear decisive kick to the head or body, and it can't have been partially blocked or avoided; also if a strong clean well placed fist combination that is not even partially blocked gets an ippon.

    A waza-ari (half point) is awarded for: fist strike to body, round kick to outside of thigh, a clear kick to the head that wasn't blocked effectively (so partially blocked or attempted block but it got through).

    Each technique only scores if it has:

    1) Good form
    2) Strong application
    3) Correct timing
    4) Correct distance
    5) Good focus

    Obviously noncontact is basically techniques that are controlled and pulled just short of the target. Warnings/penalties are issued for any contact to the head or face, or excessive contact to the body. There are also a few other prohibited techniques and behaviours.

    Rounds are one and a half to two minutes-ish.


    The knockdown division is a whole other beast altogether haha.
