  • Kyorugi Officials

    A formal referee and corner judge certification programme will ensure a consistent and high level of skill, and ensure there is a pathway available for officials to progress from beginner through to International Referee.

    Skilled refereeing and judging is a fundamental requirement for strong domestic competition which TNZ sees as a foundation element needed for international competitiveness. For members currently refereeing at tournaments, their refereeing history will be accepted as prior learning experience, and upon completing a course or seminar and undertaking a theory examination, they will be given the appropriate level refereeing certificate.
