    Rules used to be that you could only throw three consecutive strikes to the head before changing target, but it was only rarely enforced and I believe that now its been dropped.

    San Shou rules used to have have rule against multiple consecutive head punching, but as liokault said, it was rarely enforced and was dropped all together several years ago. Some San Shou rules tournments require chest protector, other tournaments don't. Chest shields (but no shin guards, go figure...) are currently required at the San Shou Amature World Championships.

    San Da rules have never had any restrictions against multiple head strikes as far as I know and never require chest shields. Head gear and shin guards are often not required, but it depends on the venue and whether its professional or amature. Elbows are usually not allowed, but I have heard of bouts in China where the are. Punching and kicking is allowed to almost all targets, including the joints (to the back and side, but not directly against the joint). All kinds of knees are allowed, but you are not supposed to pull someone's head down into a knee strike. But if you catch them in the head with a knee when they bend down or shoot in for a takedown it is okay, considered their fault.

    The clinch/in-fighting game strategy often plays out different than Muay Thai at this range anyway due to different rules and takedowns, opponent will usually shoot right away for double or single-leg or some sort of takedown or throw if you bend them down while straighening up to knee.

    To add to the San Shou clips on this thread, here are some various fightclips of our team, both professional and amature, some San Shou, some San Da (as well as some fights under Muay Thai and American Kickboxing rules): http://www.boston-kickboxing.com/fight_clip.html

    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.
