24. THE WINNER

The number of clean strikes determines the round and the number of rounds determine the fight.

Kickboxing rounds must be scored on a ten point must system.  Judges  do not submit a strike counts as a      score, they instead have to judge the winner of a round bases on a strike count.

The winner of a round receives a score of 10 (ten) and the loser receives a score of 9 (nine) or 8 (eight).

If  the difference in points is more than 6 (six), the score is 10:8, if the score is less than 6 (six), the score is 10:9.  Knock down is only 2 (two) points in amateur kickboxing.

25.  UNACEPTABLE BEHAVIOUR

In case of unacceptable behaviour, the referee can give a minus point to fighter with such behaviour.  Minus points has to be deducted off the final score of the round. If this type of behaviour occurs again, the referee can disqualify the fighter.
