    Links to some good ones are usually found on the International Forum. Just be advised that some matches you watch under the "old rules" (1 match, total score) and the newer ones under the "new rules" (win 2 out of 3 rounds to win, stepping out of bounds means giving up a point).

    I would rather have educated people that know about the rules tell me than me using uneducated guesses trying to figure out what rules are different.

    OK.

    Very basically:

    Freestyle allows the competitor to touch the legs and score in a similar fashion to American folkstyle. The major difference is that in freestyle, back exposure of any kind controlled by the opponent is 2 points where in Folk you must hold your opponent exposed for at least two seconds.

    This could be technically incorrect at this point, but Im assuming its still pretty accurate.. Im sure someone will let us know if I'm wrong

    People are being vague because the rules in freestyle change every six months.

    R.I.P. Cyrano and Roxanne.
