Forms, Creative Musical, Weapons
Each Judge will score 9.95 to 9.99 points. In the event of a tie, judges will point to either side. Proper technique should be judged by the competitor's rank, skill, and ability, which leads to fair judgment. If the competitor drops their weapon, they're automatically disqualified, and can't place unless there's only 3 or less competitor's.
Music and XMA forms are NOT allowed.
If you are competing in Point Sparring then you can NOT compete in Flag Sparring too. Head gear, gloves, boots, mouthpiece, & groin protection for males are required. There will be 2 points for kicks, and 1 point for hands scoring 5 points or the most points within a 2 minute match wins. A point will be given if the competitor has at least 1 foot in the ring. The time keeper will stop the time when a competitor is completely out of the ring.
Judges have 1 vote each, and Majority vote determines a point, warning or disqualification. There's an automatic disqualification after 2 warnings (majority vote). No spine, groin, or sweeping to the back leg are allowed, and will result in a warning. You can sweep the front leg (3 sec) while standing to score a point or 2 seconds on the ground. In case of a tie, the next point wins (sudden death).
Flag Sparring (Ages 6 and Under/Ages 7-8 Beginner belts ONLY)
Whoever pulls off the most flags within a 1 minute match wins.
