I have decided to compile a list of resources on the most common rules and regulations for common martial sports. The links are by no means universally accepted, and your first job if you are entering a competition is to FIND OUT THE PARTICULAR COMPETITION'S RULES.

However, hopefully this will give you a general picture of how different competition types are run:
