Power Slap Rules


Power Slap rules are similar to other slap-fighting organizations. The participants should be unarmed and take positions around the Power Slap table.

The one about to slap is known as the 'Striker,' and the other participant who receives the slap is called the 'Defender.'


A coin toss follows the one vs. one to find who strikes first. The striker gets a countdown of 30 seconds to throw out an open slap on the opponent's face. Strikes should be above the chin and below the eye, and the hand should not move around any other part of the face during the slap.


Defenders should not flinch or move their chin and shoulders during a slap and can take 30 seconds to recover from the strike to get back in position for their turn.


As per the weightage of a match, the number of rounds may vary from 3 to 5. And the matches that do not finish during the provided time will end up being the judges' decision, using a 10-point system.


All the participants must use a mouthguard during every match.


A Power Slap finish can be by point, knockout, technical knockout, or Disqualification.


The scores are evaluated by the damage and effectiveness of the strike and the defender's reaction or recovery from the slap.




Power Slap Weight Classes


Power Slap has been divided into two categories, i.e., Men and Women. The weight class structured for the Power Slap is the same one followed in mixed martial arts. Participants should weigh in before each match. Any failure to stay within the scheduled weight limit may result in a 20% to 30% cut from their purse.
