Color belts and black belts get 30 seconds but after the competitor reaches the time allowed, the time keeper announces it out loud and the center judge should stop them after one or two seconds for color belts and after 45 seconds for black belt rings. Do not judge anything after the alotted time
    Explanation
    Weapons free style competitors have 30 seconds. Color belts need to be stopped within a few seconds of the actual 30 second mark. Black belts need to be stopped at the 45 second mark at the most. In either case, only the first 30 seconds are to be judged, and the rest disregarded.

      1

    • C.

      0

    • D.

      4

    Correct Answer
    A. 5
    Explanation
    Magic numbers in sparring bye system are 4, 8, & 16. Your number to use is the one lower than your number of competitors, so in this case it is 8. You will lay down 8 of the slips, and then lay down the remaining 3 on top of another slip. This leaves a total of 5 slips that are not paired with another slip. These are your byes for this division.

    Rate this question:

  • 27. 

    Once the number of byes in sparring has been determined, what is the next step?

    • A.

      Have a spectator blindly pick the proper number of byes from the entry cards

    • C.

      Layout the cards in rows of either 4 or 8, pair up the remainders and those without pairs get the byes

    • D.

      Any of the above

    Correct Answer
    B. Check the uniform backs of the competitors to see who are State or World Champions in sparring
    Explanation
    After you know how many byes are going to be in your ring. Check the backs of the competitors for World Champion in sparring only, then check the backs of uniforms for State Champ in sparring only. Competitors must have their patches on to get the bye, and only Sparring champ patches are looked at, not weapons or forms.

    Rate this question:

  • 28. 

    To fill the number of byes needed, the order of selection should be what?

    • A.

      State Champs in sparring in ascending order, then World Champs in sparring in ascending order

    • B.

      All World Champs, then National Champs, and finally all State Champs next in forms and sparring

    • C.

      World Champs in sparring (including National Champs) in descending order, and then State Champs in sparring in descending order

    • D.

      All State Champs first in ascending order, then all World Champs in ascending order

    • E.

      None of the above

    Correct Answer
    C. World Champs in sparring (including National Champs) in descending order, and then State Champs in sparring in descending order
    Explanation
    World and National Champs get priority on byes, with the most recent first. Example: 2009 gets the bye before 2007. After that, State Champs get byes with most recent first. Only patches in sparring count for byes, not forms or weapons. If you have 5 byes to give out, but 7 competitors, then only the most recent in Worlds/Nationals and then State get the bye.

    Rate this question:

  • 29. 

    When filling out the sparring results sheet, if there are 8 or a few competitors, which bracket should be used?

      The first bracket

    • B.

      The second bracket

    • C.

      The third bracket

    • D.

      It does not matter

    Correct Answer
    B. The second bracket
    Explanation
    If there are 8 or a few competitors, the second bracket should be used. This is because the second bracket is specifically designed for a small number of competitors. The first bracket is typically used for larger numbers, while the third bracket may not be applicable if there are only a few competitors. Therefore, in this scenario, the second bracket is the most appropriate choice.

    Rate this question:

  • 30. 

    When filling out the sparring results sheet and placing the byes, how should they be arranged?

    • A.

      The byes should be paired together

    • B.

      The byes should be paired with non-bye competitors and placed in matches next to each other

    • C.

      It does not matter

    • D.

      The byes should be spread apart as far as possible by using the small numbers under the name lines

    Correct Answer
    D. The byes should be spread apart as far as possible by using the small numbers under the name lines
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that the byes should be spread apart as far as possible by using the small numbers under the name lines. This means that when filling out the sparring results sheet and placing the byes, they should be arranged in a way that maximizes the distance between them. This can be achieved by using the small numbers under the name lines as a guide. Pairing the byes together or with non-bye competitors and placing them next to each other is not the correct arrangement.

    • C.

      Disrespectful body language

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. All of the above
    Explanation
    All of the mentioned actions, including comments about the judging, throwing of sparring gear, and disrespectful body language, are considered unacceptable in or out of the ring.

    • C.

      Disqualify the competitor for the third offense

    • D.

      Inform the Regional Chief of Tournaments (RCT) of the actions

    • E.

      All of the above

    Correct Answer
    D. Inform the Regional Chief of Tournaments (RCT) of the actions
    Explanation
    The judges should inform the Regional Chief of Tournaments (RCT) of the actions. This is because informing the RCT ensures that the higher authority is aware of the unacceptable actions taken by the competitor. By doing so, appropriate measures can be taken to address the situation and prevent further offenses. Issuing a warning for the first offense and awarding a penalty point for the second offense are also valid actions, but they do not cover the aspect of reporting the actions to the RCT. Disqualifying the competitor for the third offense is not mentioned as a specific action to be taken. Therefore, the correct answer is to inform the RCT of the actions.

    Correct Answer
    C. Move around and follow the action of the sparring trying to maintain a "triangle" with the other judges
    Explanation
    A corner judge should move around and follow the action of the sparring in order to get a complete view of the match. By maintaining a "triangle" with the other judges, they ensure that they have different perspectives and can make fair and accurate judgments. This allows them to assess the performance of both competitors and make informed decisions regarding scoring and penalties. Focusing on the competitor that seems to be the best kicker would be biased and unfair, as it neglects other aspects of the sparring competition.
