Olympic Style -- This style of sparring is the type you actually see in the Olympics. Competitors score points by administering kicks and punches that cause the opponent to be displaced (body moves). This style emphasizes power. Control is necessary to make sure illegal targets are not struck to avoid injury to those areas.
Points can be scored to the following areas: Head that is not covered by the head gear - only face contact allowed to head. The other areas are the same as point sparring. The difference is the techniques allowed and this varies from tournament to tournament.
Protective gear: Foam dipped head gear (no open tops), fore-arm pads, chest protector, Shin & instep pads, mouth guard and groin protector.
