Quadrathlon is a combat sport consisting of four disciplines:
Jumping – jump as high as possible and hit or break a board held by specifically made stands whilst maintaining correct balance
Breaking – break as many boards as possible with only one hit
Technical performance – perform techniques of movement, defence and attack as well as breathing techniques that are traditionally learnt in a progressive and systematic order.
Fighting - attain a score advantage over an opponent. The fighting is performed dynamically with semi contact.
Each concurrence may be played individual and in teams, separately for female and male.
