My school is planning on heading out to a tournament in DC this July. I've heard that there will be san soo there and am considering entering (and getting my ass kicked) just for the experience. Can anyone tell me what the competition rules for san soo are?

San Shou is somthing like
all fist strikes including spinning back
no elbows,forearms,or groundfighting
all throws including greco, judo, SHuai chiao, freestyle etc.
boxing gloves shin pads headgear cup and brainpad
3 2min rounds (?) continuous no stalling
clinch gets broken after 5 sec.
Secret moves such as hitting a thing with your hand and hitting a thing with your leg have been stolen and degenerated by arts like karate, boxing, muay-thai, Kung-fu, and basketball. -Epicurious
I for one welcome our new Ninja overlords.
I figure fighting a group of chunners would be like water torture, its not the force as such, just the constant trickle of chain punches wearing down your sanity. -The Juggernoob

Is there always a platform, or are some matches simply held on mats?

it's san shou not san soo. ha ha!
depends on who runs the matches. some on platforms, some on mats, some in rings. in china, they usually fight on platforms although their pro bouts are usually in rings.
i would ask before entering. don't want to get there and find out it's something you weren't prepared for. ask about what type of flooring it is as well. i sparred some guys in China and the floor was really really soft (they said it was for Shuai Jiow but the women's team was using the San Shou gym). drained a lot of leg strength and limited some techniques. that's why I didn't do as hot...right...it was all the floor....fucking floor.......
Punches in bunches and kicks kicks kicks!

Whatever it is, I guarantee that I'll be unprepared for it. Nevertheless . . .

watch as many clips as you can online
Marvin Perry all top notch guys
as far as technique goes
Throwing is the name of the game
so aquaint yourself with your arsenal
use your puches to close the gap and set up a throw
KEEP YOUR HANDS UP
use kicks to either Jam his attack, create space or punish him
target for kicks should be low, hit his thighs and slow him down
kicking middle and high can get you swept
Watch how some people use the side kick
only kick high if he's dropping his guard and you think you can smash his brain
if he charges in punching
crouch (level change) and grab his legs for a takedown / slide around back for a suplex
make sure you TRAIN san shou style
boxing gloves head gear mouthpiece
so you know how it feels
watch the clips and write down the most used techniques and work them and counters to them.
last and not least FOOTWORK
entering and pivoting/ getting angles
just go in there and refuse to back down or quit
and take the fight to HIM
and you'll never regret it.

Marvin Perry has sent more fighters to the hospital than any other fighter I've ever known.
That being said, watch out for double and single leg take downs, if your knee hits the ground before the take down then you're considered down and your opponent might get the point. San Shou is no joke, most people think of it as "kung-fu fighting" IMO opinion it's one of the toughest type of fights I've ever been in. Jbliss is giving you excellent advice (amazing considering his IQ level, he must be and idiot savant), I'd listen to it verbatum.
