1. Boards made of Japanese cedar (Cryptomeria japonica) with size of 30 x 21 cm and thickness of 2.4 cm shall be used for breaking (Tameshiwari). Boards that meet the standards of the Kyokushin­kan International Karate­do Organization (K.I.K.O.) and that passed the control of judging panel shall be used. In case if organizers are not able to prepare boards made of Japanese cedar and/or the size for competitions, using boards made of any other woody species meeting the standards of the K.I.K.O. shall be allowed, but in such a case the organizers have to obtain permission in advance from the World Headquarters (So Honbu).

2. Points shall be given subject to the number of boards broken. The winner in the competitions shall be determined in accordance with the K.I.K.O. Rules. In weight category tournaments, winner is determined in order of 1) Tameshiwari and 2) weight difference. In open weight tournaments, the order will be 1) weight difference and 2) Tameshiwari.

3. Competitors shall break boards with four different strikes in the following sequence: 1) Seiken; 2) Sokuto; 3) Empi (Hiji); 4) Shuto. The number of boards broken shall be summed up, and the sum shall determine the number of points received by the competitor.

4. Should judges find it necessary competitors shall perform breakings with the bias in a clockwise direction to the adjacent place of breaking after each breaking kind. Should judges find this unnecessary, all four kinds of breaking can be performed by competitor on the same place.

5. The competitor himself shall choose the number of boards for breaking, but this number has not to be less than the minimal boards set for breaking (for men – 3 boards). The number of boards for breaking for women’s competitions shall be the following: 1 board for Seiken, 2 boards for Sokuto, 2 boards for Empi, and 2 boards for Shuto; as for the rest, women can order any number of boards like in the men’s competitions.

6. If in the first attempt competitor fails to break the number of boards he/she chosen, the attempt shall be declared unsuccessful (Shippai), and the points shall not be given.

7. If the first attempt was unsuccessful, competitor shall be given the second attempt, but in this case participant cannot brake more than the minimal number of boards set by the rules (3 boards). As a penalty, minus 0.5 point will be given for the second attempt (2.5 points).

8. If the second attempt turns out to be unsuccessful again, the competitor will be given a penalty point of ­0.5 point.

9. Tameshiwari shall be held in the established place; fixed blocks shall be used as the support. Blocks can not be shifted without permission of judge or steward of competitions.

10. When performing Tameshiwari, it shall be absolutely forbidden for competitors to touch boards and blocks before the referee’s command. Only judge shall have the right to put towels, kerchiefs and the like things to the boards upon their prior examination.

11. Tameshiwari shall be performed after the judge’s command. 2 minutes shall be given for the first attempt. Upon their expiry, the attempt shall be considered unsuccessful (Shippai).

12. When performing Tameshiwari, one referee and two assistant referees will go up on the competition area. Same number of judges to the participants will be present below the competition area. Judges shall prepare the boards for breaking.

13. Upon placing competitors to their places for breaking, the referee shall give them command to greet with bows (Rei). Bows shall be made forward and backwards.

14. Upon the performance of attempt, judges shall make the competitors who performed breaking successfully (Seiko) to sit down. The referee shall name the competitors in Zekken order, who performed breaking successfully announcing “Zekken number – number of boards – ‘Seiko!’ (Successful)”. Afterwards, the referee shall name the competitors, also in Zekken order, who failed to break the boards; “Zekken number – ‘Shippai!’ (Unsuccessful)”. Competitors who failed to break the boards during the attempt shall keep standing.

15. Judges will display the number of boards broken by a card, and put it down as the referee reads out the card. If the attempt was unsuccessful, the judge will cross his arms in front of his face to display ‘the attempt was unsuccessful’.

16. The same procedure follows during the second attempt of competitors who were unsuccessful in their first attempt.

17. Upon completion of Tameshiwari, the referee shall lift all competitors up and give the command to greet with bows. Bows shall be made forward and backwards like before Tameshiwari; and afterwards the competitors and judges shall exit from the competition area.
