New Rule Change for Sparring in Tournaments
If you’re going to be taking part in any sparring tournaments, including the upcoming British Championships, please be aware of this updated rule that we have been notified of by the TAGB.
Here it is as it appears on the TAGB website:
IMPORTANT CHANGE TO THE SPARRING RULES
With effect from the 2017 British Championships, we are changing the point stop loss of points rules to be the same as in continuous sparring.
LOSS OF BALANCE MINUS 1 POINT
STEPPING OUT OF THE AREA MINUS 1 POINT ON EVERY OTHER OCCASION.
This we hope will make it a little easier for everyone to understand.
Master Paul Donnelley
