1 - Coaches are not allowed to give indications to the competitors while they are fighting.
2 - Only during the pause time (after Mate), coaches will be permitted to give indications to their athletes.
3 - After the pause is finished, and the fight continues (hajime), coaches will have to keep silence again.
4 - If a coach doesn´t follow these rules, he can be expelled from the competition area.
5 - If the coach persists with his behavior from outside the competition area, he could be penalized.
