The Karate Canada Officials Committee (OC) oversees the training, evaluation and certification of all officials at the national level. The OC sets standards for KC officiating and supports provincial officials’ development. The OC members participate in international officiating seminars and tournaments to remain aware of new developments and interpretations of WKF competition rules. The OC monitors the performance and progress of KC officials at all the major international championships.

To learn more about becoming a Karate Canada official please refer to the Officials’ Handbook.
