Fighting categories and rules

Buhurt World Championship tournament includes several fighting categories with specific rules systems. In short, in 1 versus 1 fights athletes gather points with solid hits. In mass battles (e.g. 5 versus 5), the main goal is to make your opponents’ fall to the ground. We gathered all basic rules into one pdf-file. Take a closer look to all categories and the rules used, and choose which categories you want to watch!
