International Friendship Games

The general rule is that one team consists of members from one country.  Teams with members from more than one country are allowed.
In Dantai jissen the general rule is that one team should consist of 5 competitors, however, if a player is not able to participate due to injury or similar and no substitution is available, the match for the absent player will be counted as a ”default loss” and the team can participate in the event with four (4) competitors.
In case of very few or too many applied competitors in specific events, the competition committee reserves the right to make alternations in the event-compositions. Any changes will be informed to the national taido organizations the effected competitors belong to.
Competitors have to be members of a national taido organization belonging to the World Taido Federation.
Participants of the European Taido Championship (ETC) are not allowed to participate in the International Friendship Games (IFG).
