    Question on Scoring "knockdowns"

    This is primarily a question for kickboxing sports.

    I know how the typical knockdown is scored in most kickboxing rulesets. What about a standing 8-count from strikes that you are unable to defend yourself against? Are they scored, in most circumstances and rulesets, the same as a regular knockdown?

    And what about a standing 8-count for any other reason (like the inability to respond to the ref due to conditioning or something)?

    Thanks for the help in clarifying.

    On a 10 point must system, I believe a standing count is the same as a knockdown in the deduction of 1 point from the recipient of the asskicking.

    In amatuer sports without a 10 point must system, a knockdown is typically worth either a set number of points, or nothing at all.

    I know you said kickboxing ... but anyway.

    In Kyokushin if you knowdown someone, you get a point. Now, you've pretty much won that fight unless he can get a knock down (and a point) on you. If you knock someone down twice, then you win the match.

    And let me be clear a trip or slip doesn't mean a knock down.

    How common are amateur striking sports without a 10-point-must system?

    And in the cases where there is a different system, do the fighters earn points throughout the match, eventually accumulating to a total at the end, and the person with the most points wins? Or are they only scored on certain things?

    AFAIK amatuer boxing, sanshou and sometimes muay thai are not scored with the 10 point must. You accumulate points throughout the fight for successfully landed effective strikes.

    In ABA boxing, 1 punch = 1 point. No extra points for knockdowns.

    In Sanshou I believe it is something like 3 points for a knockdown/successful throw where the thrower remains standing.

    That seems like an odd system for Muay Thai. But thanks for the help!
