    Competition Rules

    Howdy folks.

    I was wondering if anyone had compiled a list of the various rules governing modern MMA, Kickboxing, San Shou, etc, competitions.

    Or if, perhaps, you just know where I could find them for myself to do so.

    You mean to honestly tell me that a site supposedly dedicate to sport martial arts doesn't maintain a rule reference?

    Only if you are in the tub with her.:angel8:

    Anyway, one thing you need to learn about this site is, we will help you look for legit information.
    We aren't going to help you find information to further your argument against sparring or competitions.

    Umm dedicated to busting frauds and myths in the Martial arts. Sport fighting seems to be the only viable way to get trained in semi-real fighting.

    Why don't you just skip straight to whatever point your're trying to make, that way we can go straight to cussing you down.

    Bingo.

    The reason for this is that many of the sport arts vary in ruleset depending on who's running the competition. You get some submission grappling tournaments which allow spine locks, neck cranks and heel hooks, and other tournaments which seem to consider it daring to let their higher-ranked competitors lock the legs at all. MMA can vary from Vale Tudo rulesets (no biting, eye gouging or fish-hooking; and that's it as far as illegal techniques go) to "amateur rules" which may restrict heaps of things up to and including closed hand strikes to the head.

    Certain sports do have rulesets recognised as standard. Judo is one example. It's unified under a central organisation, so there is a standard international rule listing. I believe the same would be true of Kyokushin karate. Boxing has a number of organisations who run championships, but I believe that the rulesets are identical or nearly so from one organisation to the next; kickboxing however varies more widely.

    If you could narrow down which particular arts or styles you'd like to know typical competition rulesets for, maybe we could be of more help.

    Dunno ... Do you mean to honestly tell us that a person like yourself supposedly dedicated to learning martial arts doesn't have the wits to find things that weren't wrapped up in a super-secret scroll and served to you on a silver platter?
