The subjective nature of the scoring process in amateur boxing has led to continual problems for the sport over many years. The success of various approaches to implement scoring systems is discussed elsewhere [1]. An attempt is being made to develop an automated scoring and performance analysis system for amateur boxing to improve scoring objectivity [2]. The automated impact scoring system (AISS) uses subtly modified boxing equipment. It has been adopted for use in a modified, low-risk form of competitive boxing called Box’Tag®, where the head is excluded from the target zone and there are additional target areas on the shoulders [1-3]. This study reports on the performance of the AISS v1.0 in the Box’Tag setting.
