Legitimate targets include all areas of the body (except deliberately striking the groin area or any part of the back), the tibia (shin) when used in a blocking action, and the forearm when used in a blocking action.

 

Notes: strong Kicks to the upper arm score.
 
b) The effectiveness of the techniques. Effective techniques are defined as Muay Thai techniques delivered on balance and have a physical effect on a competitor.
 
To be considered effective techniques, strikes or throwing actions are to comprise of one of the following.
 
I) to cause a loss of a Fighter’s balanced position. (They are moved physically either due to the power of the strike, good timing or because of a Fighter’s loss of balance)
or…
II). to cause them to show physical or psychological distress, (showing fear or pain).
III). Round Kicks delivered with force cleanly hitting the body or neck are considered effective, even without causing loss of position. Similarly, straight Knee Strikes or Circle Knees, delivered with force and striking with the point of the knee, also are considered effective without obvious effect.
IV). All Elbow Strikes that cut are considered effective without any other obvious effect.

However, if the Kicker with his kicking leg caught by an opponent pretends to fall down on the ring floor, they are considered guilty of violating the rules. In this case, no Fighter scores a point. The winner of a bout is the Fighter who successfully delivers more effective techniques than
their opponent whether moving forwards, backwards, sideways or against the ropes. If the number of strikes scored by each competitor is equal, and one Fighter was clearly more proactive in attempting to attack during the bout, they should win the bout. If the number of strikes scored by each Fighter is equal and no contestant has clearly
attacked more, the Fighter who shows better offensive skills, defensive skills, elusive skills, or counterattacking skills using Muay Thai arts and techniques wins the bout. If Fighters are otherwise equal and one Fighter clearly fouls consistently, that Fighter who violates the rules loses the bout. If neither Fighter delivers any effective strikes, the Fighter that lands more ineffective strikes should be awarded the bout.

All bouts shall be scored on a 10 point must system.
