Full Contact Judged Competition: A Full Contact contest in which judges are present, and one contestant may be declared a winner. This match would affect an athlete’s Class progression as a win, loss, or draw.
Full Contact Exhibition (FC Exh): A Full Contact contest in which no judges are present, and no contestant is declared a winner. Athletes who do FC Exh still compete with full force, displaying technique and power. This match affects an athlete’s Class progression but not as a win or loss. For example, an athlete with 2 wins and 2 FC Exh has a record that looks like 2-0-0, 2 Exh, and is in B class.
Light Contact Exhibition (LC Exh): A Light Contact contest in which no judges are present, and no contestant is declared a winner. This does not affect an athlete’s Class progression. But should still be disclosed in an athlete’s record.
LIGHT CONTACT The use of controlled techniques. No contact to the head is permitted, nor is any contact which may or is intended to result in harm.
FULL CONTACT The purposeful use of physical force, including contact which does not meet the definition of Light Contact.
