2. Usually bouts are served by a judging panel consisting of 1 referee (shushin), 4 corner judges (fukushin) and 2 referee assistants (shushin hosa). But organizers of competitions have the right not to assign referee assistants (shushin hosa).

8. Any corner judge is to express clearly his judging of the situation in response to signals of other corner judges and the referee and to show whether he supports their judging of the situation, or if not, by showing «Mitomezu!» («No count!») or «Miezu!» («Has not seen!»).

  • j) Pushes (oshi) to the body and shoulders with palms, forearms or fists;

Subpoints from k to m, listed below, in a wide sense can be interpreted as the violation of the prohibition to push opponent (oshi). When moving toward the opponent delivering of strikes shall be necessary! The movement toward the opponent without strikes shall not be regarded as attack activity (kosei). At the same time moving forward toward the retreating opponent without delivering strikes shall not be considered as the violation of the Rules, but even in such a case approaching toward the opponent until coming in touch is prohibited.

  • k) Delivering of strikes series from the position standing in front of opponent with feet parallel to each other on one line, as if falling on the opponent and pushing him out of his position;

In international competitions in case of giving the rebuke (chui) or the penalty point (genten) to a competitor for the disgraceful behavior of his seconds, when a representative of the same country which the punished competitor belongs to (in domestic competitions – of the same branch or club) enters the competition area for participation in a bout the number of his seconds shall be limited to 1 person;

  • a) in case a competitor, having received a strike, was knocked down, got a serious injury, which became the reason for brief loss of consciousness by him, or got an injury, which could influence the further development of bout, even if he raised to his feet, the competitor, who delivered the strike, is disqualified (shikkaku);
  • b) in case a competitor, having received a strike, was knocked down, but did not lose consciousness, got a light injury, or only temporarily lost his ability to move, the competitor, who delivered the strike, is given the penalty point (genten);
  • c) in case a competitor received a strike, but did not get serious injury, the competitor, who delivered the strike, is given the rebuke (chui);
