Rules of challenge

The initial draw is held on the principle of challenge: the athletes of the host countries team choose their opponents from the World Ethnosport team, then the knockout principle is used. The final result in the team competition is considered by the number of victories of representatives of the teams, in addition, the winner of the tournament in each type of competition is revealed.
