The victory or defeat is decided by any direct attack using punches, kicks, elbow, head-butt, throw, etc.
It is required for the athletes to wear the face protector (Neo headgear KU) and execute all the techniques with bare hands and feet.
Any athlete is allowed to take up the ground techniques such as strangle and joint techniques.
Athletes are also allowed for grabbing and swinging an opponent or punching, elbowing, head-butting or kicking an opponent while holding “Kudo-GI” for up to 10 seconds.
If there is a difference of over 20 Physical Index (height in cm + weight in kg) within the competitors, the allowed techniques are limited.
Participants are allowed to attack the opponent using elbow and head-butt or tackle them and even throw them.
Ground techniques are allowed twice to the players during every 3 minutes of the first match. The extension or re-extension for a maximum of 30 seconds is allotted for each time.
During any accidental injuries, the judge group follows the opinion of the doctors. The doctor, at that moment, examines the injury and decides the proper treatment.
If any injury caused to the participant treated by himself in 1 minute, there will be no extra point, but if the doctors treat the injury within 3 minutes, it will give the competitor KOHKA-points.
When any professional treatment doesn’t end within 3 minutes, the referee stops the contest.
The first foul or HANSOKU-1(Ichi) is a warning and does not result in a loss of point. Two times HANSOKU result in the opponent’s loss of one KOHKA point. Three times HANSOKU result in the opponent’s loss of one YUKOU point. “HANSOKU – 4(yon)” means “the fourth violating the rules” in Japanese. It becomes a loss on a foul from the disqualification.
