RULES: The only scoring is for takedowns or penalties. No escapes! No reversals! No back points! No pins! 2 points per takedown. It is takedown and release. A 12-point lead constitutes a technical fall and the match will be stopped at that point. One 2-minute period for K-6th and one 3-minute period for 7-12th divisions, continuous clock. Clock only stops for injury or blood. No overtime. If score is tied at the end of regulation the wrestler who scored the first takedown wins the match. If 0-0 at end of regulation overtime is sudden victory.
