Competitors will perform this portion live in a virtual arena where they will be scored by multiple judges. Just like a normal bout, there will be three rounds where athletes will try to complete as many reps as possible. Each round is judged on various aspects such as quality, control, and amount of reps completed.
The athlete that wins will progress to the next round in their bracket, and will be given a new time slot and link to compete. From there, the winners will contend in IFMA’s International Virtual Championships.
