Competition in Kick-Light kickboxing should be executed as its name implies, with well-controlled techniques. In Kick-Light competitors fight continuously until central referee command STOP or BREAK. They use techniques from full contact, but these techniques must be well controlled when they land on legal targets. Equal emphasis must be placed on both punching and kicking techniques. Kick-Light has been created as an intermediate stage between semi and full contact kickboxing. It is carried out with running time. The central referee doesn't judge the fighters, but only makes sure they respect the rules. Three judges make the complete scoring decisions in an electronical scoring system.
