IIRC BKA is JKA+ other models
Besides, latest competitions have mostly gone with "competition size kendamas" instead of BKO approved,

Welcome to the forum, @S.S.Clarence .
As shalafi says, most live competitions are now going with a simple size limit.
This leaves the BKA-approved list as a guide for kendamas accepted for gradings. The grading system has a 40+ year history of everyone using one size of kendama for their exams. We're not changing that now, as that would un-level the playing field.
