Sport Combat and Submission Style Fighting can cover a wide range of rules. In addition, many rules and requirements vary by county, province, state and/or country. Requirements for each state, country, etc., will be determined during sanctioning contract negotiations and matchmaking.
Certain changes such as round and bout lengths may be modified for each event. All modifications to ISCF Rules must be submitted and approved by the appropriate ISCF official no later than 30 days prior to the event.
