The remaining seven groups completed their demonstrations during the afternoon block at the European Judo Championships Kata 2023. According to the point scoring system, the maximum of 10 points can be awarded per technique including open and closing ceremonies. The positive score is decreased by mistakes. The following categories define different mistakes:
Forgotten technique/Major mistake – score is zero and the total score of the Kata is halved. If the forgotten technique is more than one, zero score will be given to the technique but the total score will be not halved again.
Big mistake: when the execution of the principle is incorrect (5 points are deducted and the maximum number of crosses is 1)
Medium mistake: when one or more elements of the principle are not applied in the correct way (3 points are deducted and the maximum number of crosses is 1).
Small mistake: imperfection in the application of the technique (1 point is deducted and the maximum number of crosses is 2).
