Pathway to Becoming a Karate Alberta Official
Officials provide the environment for a safe, unbiased, fair field of play for competitions. After completing an officials course, officials will begin as a Provincial level official and work their way up as judges and referees for both kata and kumite through attendance at clinics, courses, writing exams, and on-tatami evaluations. Upon successful completion of courses, exams, and on-tatami evaluations, an official will earn a new license.
