BC Athletic Commission Publishes New Kickboxing Rules

The BC Athletic Commission overhauled their rules governing amateur kickboxing in late 2015 and has now published these revised rules at their website.

One of the biggest changes involves cleaning up the language with respect judging criteria with the new rules setting out the below easy to understand standards which are far clearer than those under the old rules.

17.1 Judging Criteria Priority Judges will score each round based on points awarded in the following priority:

a. Number of knockdowns

b. Cumulative damage inflicted on the opponent

c. Number of clean strikes scored

d. Ring control / aggressiveness

The criteria higher on the list will take precedent in scoring over criteria lower on the list
