The decision of the match is determined by valid scores that were awarded or deducted. A valid score is +1 point, a kyunggo warning is -1/2 point and a gamjeom warning is -1 point per award of declaration. Two or more judges must score the technique for the point to be awarded. If one 1/2 point deduction is given to a competitor, it will have no effect on his or her score. If two 1/2 point deductions are given, a full point will then be deducted from the competitor's score.
In adding the total score, the greatest positive values, or in the case of deductions, the least negative value shall be awarded the match. In the case of a tie, the player having been awarded the valid score shall be declared the winner. If the match outcome cannot be decided by these methods, the player being awarded the greater number of rounds on superiority by the referee's scoring will be declared the winner. If a valid score or deduction point occurs in the course of a round, superiority shall automatically be determined by the score of the round. If no valid score or deduction points are recorded, or in the case of a perfect tie, superiority, as determined by the referees, shall be displayed by a "V" on the appropriate side of the scoreboard.
