Clarification of rules
There were some mismatch about the interpretation of the rules: you can participate on the World Cup with a BLUE belt (4. gup) and up.
Please see the detailed World Cup rules on ITF's website.
The new changes (for this year) are highlighted in red in the above document.
Please be aware that according to the new amendments on the World Cup rules the Pre-arranged free sparring category is divided into groups of males (male-male) and females (female-female), but no mixed team is allowed on the World Cup. This is why you can not register a mixed team on the registration site. Thank you for your understanding.
