FCR rules means kicks only above the waist, usually a minimum of 6, sometimes minimum of 8. Continuous hard contact kickboxing. Boxing hand strikes and sometimes backfisting is also allowed.
No knees, clinching, elbows, takedowns, etc etc etc.

They do have "Oriental rules" where they allow kicking below the waist and some clinching too it looks like but not much.SON OF ODIN

I never understood the term "full contact" when clearly you're not allowed to hit a variety of targets.
I suppose half contact doesn't sound as appealing, but still...

I feel ill after watching that.

In any truer sense a person who fights professionally in a full-contact environment would have to seriously dumb down his technical fighting ability to match that of a point-sparring competitor.

Oriental rules is apparently no clinching but allows knees.

It was KICKBOXING you fools. Like, ya know, the .gifs in my sig. It's not fucking point karate.
But yeah, the MMA guys that fought in this were grapplers. One of the guys, apparently, just kind of kept walking forward while the karate guy kept side kicking him in the face, then eventually he got knocked down with a pretty light hook kick and cracked his head on a hard part of the ring and was KO'd.

Hmmm, I'm sure I would get ktfo in a format like that considering out of the 5 days I train 4 are grappling and the other one is kickboxing. Then again, like they say about MMA fighters reverting back to their base style(i.e. wrestling) I would probably shoot in for a takedown, take his back, and choke him out before the ref could break it up.

I'm glad you corrected me.That guy sure sounds like a kickboxer.
