Spectator Guide

While competition rules differ from group to group, the basic regulations which most follow are:

  • Knockout: the moment a competitor becomes unconscious due to strikes, his opponent is declared the winner.
  • Submission: a competitor may submit defeat during a match by tapping on his opponent's body, mat or floor, or by verbal announcement.
  • Technical knockout: the referee may stop a match when a competitor is unable to intelligently defend himself from attacks, appears to be unconscious from a grappling hold, or appears to be disoriented.
  • Decision: if the match goes the distance, then the outcome of the bout is determined by the officials. The judging criteria are organization-specific.
  • Disqualification: a warning will be given when a fighter commits a foul or illegal action or does not follow the referee's instruction. Generally, three warnings will result in a disqualification. Moreover, if a fighter is injured and unable to continue due to a deliberate illegal technique from his opponent, the opponent will be disqualified.
  • No contest: in the event that both fighters commit a violation of the rules, or a fighter is unable to continue due to an injury from an accidental illegal technique, the match will be declared a no contest.
