FILA publishes official rules
The new Wrestling Rules approved by the FILA Bureau and presented at the FILA Extraordinary Congress in Moscow (18th May 2013) are available hereunder.
The modifications concern mainly:
1. The time and periods of the bout (2×3 minutes)
2. Cumulative score instead of the best-of-three-format
3. Procedure for passivity (the rules governing Greco-Roman and Freestyle are distinctly different)
4. Points for take down
As per decision by the FILA Bureau and the Extraordinary Congress, these modifications are enforced immediately in all competitions.
