Effective defence is judged by avoiding being struck, takendown or reversed while countering the opponent’s attack with the fighter’s own offensive manoeuvres. B- Effective striking is judged by determining the total number of legal strikes landed by the fighter and the severity of any form of visible and physical damage to his opponent. C- Aggressiveness is judged by effectively moving forward towards the opponent, in an attempt to land a legal attacking manoeuvre. v) The following objective scoring criteria shall be utilized by the judges when scoring a round: A- a round is to be scored a 5 – 5 round when both contestants appear to be fighting evenly and neither of them show clear dominance in a round. B- a round is to be scored as a 5 – 4 when a contestant wins by a close margin, landing the greater number of effective legal strikes, fight control and good defence and other manoeuvres. C- a round is to be scored as a 5 – 3 round when a contestant overwhelmingly dominates by striking, takedown and display aggressive fighting in a round.
