INDIVIDUAL
A. In each event a wooden board (30 x 30 x 1.5cm thick), or the plastic equivalent, or a machine designed for the specific test will be used. The board thickness and height/length will be set by the Tournament Adjudication Committee prior to the event.
B. For each item, each competitor will have 1 attempt to break only with 1 pre-judging of distance. An L-Stand forearm guarding block ready posture must be adopted before and after the attempt to break. The attempt to break must be in one continuous movement. After the signal of the referee the competitor has 30 seconds to complete that item.
