COMPETITION RULES AND FLOOR
The National version of the 1999 set of IWUF rules will be implemented. Modern optional forms with nandu can be performed in modern wushu but there will be no marks for difficulties or transitions.
The NKF Taolu carpet will be used at the competition. This is a thin carpet surface with a thick soft layer underneath, similar to the carpets used in cheerleading and gymnastics.
