Points to consider:

 

Once all Competitors have registered and draws been finalised we shall post the online schedule through www.kihapp.com, 2 weeks prior to the event.

This allows for coaches to contact us to rectify any errors or unsuitable matches

Any unsuccessful entries that we cannot match will be refunded, direct to method used to pay to enter.

 

Once all provisional draws are completed the schedule will be published to allow all attendees to plan their arrival times accordingly.

 

All draws remain provisional until all competitors have weighed in, once weigh in complete the draws will be updated. 

 

This Schedule updates as categories progress or are delayed. The online schedule is a rough guideline and will change in line with how the event is progressing.

ALL COMPETITORS NEED TO MAKE THEMSELVES AVAILABLE FOR ALL  DAYS OF THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS INCLUDING:

 WEIGH IN - OPENING CEREMONY - CHAMPIONSHIPS  

 

EVERY EFFORT WILL BE MADE TO KEEP YOU UP TO DATE WHEN AND WHICH AREA YOU WILL BE COMPETING IN

It is anticipated that all rule sets will feature ALL days of the competition and some categories will span both days while some will start and finish on the same day dependant of the size of entries per division. NOTIFICATIONS WILL BE SENT OUT

As this is a World Championships and not a National Championships consideration must be given to the time it will take to run such an event.

Due to Covi-19 restrictions we are aiming to run the Championships from 8am to 8pm on the 6th November. This will only be possible if a significant number of competitors take advantage of the optional day before weigh in.

Also due to Covid-19 only countries listed as Green Zones under UK Government travel restrictions are allowed to participate.

Thank you for all teams and competitors from around the world which are supporting this event, without you there simply is no event.

We appreciate each and everyone of you and are proud to have you all as a part of not only our history but out future too.
