5.2 Yuko datotsu (valid points)

A point is scored when 2 or 3 of the referees hold up the same coloured flag to award a point. The point may also be given if only one referee indicates the point and the others indicate they could not see what happened. Points are awarded for a correct cut using proper posture, footwork, kiai (vocal sound), fumi-komi (stamping of feet) and if the cut is followed by good zanshin (awareness). The cut must also have been made using correct timing and positioning of the body whilst striking (Ki-ken-tai-no-uchi).
