as i nderstand, full contact body punches but no face punching. kicks to the body, thighs and shins, but not the knees or groin. and only spining style kicks to the face (no front snap or thrust, but round house and wheel are fine)

im not sure how points are awarded, but posible point winners are knocking the other guy down, if you land a punch while he on the way down or on the floor quck enough its oer there and you win. knocking him ot of the ring is point worthy and knocking him out for the win. and of coarse submittion due to broken things is another way.
