Methods of victory defined

K.O. (knockout)

A knockout will be counted if one person goes down from the impact of a blow and results or appears

unconscious or can not adequately defend himself (not from a push or slip). The referee will step in and

stop the fight.



A T.K.O. is registered when the referee deems that one fighter is in danger of receiving excessive

damage if they continue in the match, in this case the referee will award the other fighter a T.K.O. victory.


Tap Out

A fighter may give up at anytime during the match by "taping out", this is done by slapping their open palm

multiple times ( a minimum of 2 times) on the mat, the opponent, the referee or as a sign in the air if they

cannot position themselves to tap out by one of the other methods. Tapping out acknowledges a victory

for the opponent and ends the match immediately.


Choke Out

The referee will immediately stop a match at any sign of unconsciousness when a choke has been set

and award the combatant who applied the choke the victory.



- When a match goes to the time limit then the judges will make a decision based on the following point


- Standing superiority - The fighter who has shown superior skills on the feet will be awarded one point and

  the opponent no points. In the case of equal display of standing skills, both combatants will be awarded

  one point. (Per Round).

- Takedown superiority - The combatant who shows superiority in takedowns will be awarded 1 point and

  the opponent no points. In the case of equal takedown skills both combatants will receive 1 point. (Per


- Ground superiority - The combatant who shows superior ground fighting skills will be awarded 1 point and

  the opponent no points. In the case of equal ground fighting skills both combatants will receive 1 point.

  (Per Round).

- Total superiority - The fighter who controls most of the fight action during each round will be awarded 2

  points. In the case of equal amount of control by both combatants, each combatant will be awarded 2

  points. (Per Round).


The points will be totaled and the combatant with the most points will be judged as the winner by each

individual judge. In the case of equal points awarded to each combatant, the judge will award a draw. The

match will be judged by 3 licensed judges who will turn in their score cards with their name on the card at

the end of the match. The referee will award a decision based on the decision of the judges as follows:


Unanimous decision

All 3 judges award a victory to the same combatant.


Majority decision

Two judges award a victory to the same person and the third judge awards a draw or one judge awards a

victory to one person and the other two judges call a draw.


Split decision

Two judges award a decision to one combatant and the other judge awards a decision to the other




All three judges award a draw (equal points). Or one judge awards a decision to one fighter while the

second judge awards a decision to the opposing fighter and the third judge awards a draw.


Opponent yells out "Stop."

When a combatant yells out stop or in any other way indicates that they do not wish to continue, the

referee will stop the match immediately and award the victory to the other combatant.


Referee's stoppage of the match

The referee will consider both combatants safety at all times and may stop the match and award a victory

to the appropriate combatant if he feels that the other combatant's safety is in danger and or injury is

eminent and forth coming. This situation will be given particular consideration when a joint lock is being

put on and the "locked" combatant refuses to "tap out" or "give up".



When the combatants are on the ground and neither is attempting to gain an advantage position or

submission, then the referee will start a ten count, if the action does not pick up and the fighters are still

not securing an advantage or submission by the end of the ten count, then a stalemate exists and the

referee will break the combatants and restart them on their feet. When the fighters go under the ropes or

entangle in the ropes then the referee will break them and restart them in the center of the ring in the same

position they were when stopped.
