1)         Clean blows, not otherwise prohibited by this Part, in proportion to their damaging effects.

 

2)         Aggressiveness.

 

3)         Defensive maneuvers for avoiding or blocking a blow.

 

4)         Conspicuous command of the fighting area, which includes such factors as the ability to take advantage of an opportunity; to cope with, foresee and neutralize an opponent's attack; or to force an opponent to adopt a style of fighting at which he or she is not skillful.

 

c)         System for Scoring a Contest

 

1)         The scoring of the contest by the judges will be by the 10-point must system.

 

2)         Under the 10-point must system, the winner of each round receives 10 points and the loser a proportionately lower number.

 

3)         If the round is even, each contestant receives the full number of points.  No fractions are to be used.

 

4)         If a round is stopped by a referee due to an accidental foul, the round shall be scored.
