The pool matches will consist of three kata, with torei performed outside the shiaijo. The knockout matches will have five kata instead of three, whilst the torei will still be outside the shiaijo.
The finals will take place at the end of the day. Here the matches will have five kata again, but will also include both beginning and ending torei within the shiaijo. Please be aware of the fact that timekeeping will be enforced for these matches.
