This was "only" a tournament, but for us, the high score in the pre and in the final are an important pointer. The highest and the lowest score is dropped, so the sum of three judges is the final score. The critical number is 144 per judge with 3x 144= 432. That means that the average score per technique is 8 (15 techniques + start + end + overall flow --> 18 single scores per judge with a max. of 10). 8 points means, that there is no middle mistake in the technique. Higher score then 8 for a technique is hard to get, because a judge who did not see a middle mistake but is in doubt, if they could have been one, will score 8 no matter how good the action was. The reason for this is, that the judges are now classified by the percentage of how many middle or big mistakes the see or oversee.
The tournament also served as a judges examination, that explains some strange scores, which did not effect the final results, because they were dropped and the level of competitors was mostly not so close together.
I don´t have a video yet. I usually leave my camera at home, because it would disturb my concentration. Maybe anyone else recorded it. I don´t know....
BTW: Kime-no-Kata and Kodokan-Goshinjutsu include more techniques (20 resp. 21), so the "critical" score is 184/552 (Kime-no-Kata) resp. 192/576 (Kodokan-Goshinjutsu). Katame- and Nage-no-Kata is the same as Ju-no-Kata.
