Routines of jianshu, nanquan, changquan, daoshu, gunshu, qiangshu, nandao and nangun must last at least for 1 minute 20 seconds. The optional routines of taijijian and taijiquan and the group events must last for 3-4 minutes and compulsory routines of taijiquan must last for 5-6 minutes. Dual routines must last for at least 50 seconds.
Each individual athlete starts his/her routine with ten points. Five points are allocated to the quality of movement, three for overall performance and two for the degree of difficulty of the routine. Each error (a divergence from the technique, a stumble or a poor technique) is penalized by the deduction of a point. Group athletes are also scored on a 10-point basis which is split equally between the quality of movement and overall performance.
