A fight ordinarily comprises of a decided number of three-minute adjusts, an aggregate of up to 9 to 12 rounds. A moment is normally gone through between each round with the contenders in their doled out corners accepting exhortation and consideration from their mentor and staff. The battle is controlled by an official who works inside the ring to pass judgment and control the lead of the warriors, administer on their capacity to battle securely, check thumped down contenders, and manage on fouls.

Up to three judges are regularly present at ringside to score the session and dole out focuses to the boxers, in view of punches and elbows that associate, safeguard, knockdowns, embracing and other, more emotional, measures. In light of the open-finished style of boxing judging, numerous battles have questionable outcomes, in which one or the two contenders trust they have been “victimized” or unreasonably denied a triumph. Every warrior has an appointed corner of the ring, where his or her mentor, and in addition at least one “seconds” may manage to the contender toward the start of the battle and between rounds. Every boxer goes into the ring from their appointed corners toward the start of each round and should stop battling and come back to their corner at the flagged end of each round.

A session in which the foreordained number of rounds passes is chosen by the judges, and is said to “go all the way”. The contender with the higher score toward the finish of the battle is ruled the victor. With three judges, consistent and split choices are conceivable, as are draws. A boxer may win the session before a choice is come to through a thump out; such sessions are said to have finished “inside the separation”. In the event that a warrior is thumped down amid the battle, controlled by whether the boxer contacts the canvas floor of the ring with any piece of their body other than the feet because of the rival’s punch and not a slip, as dictated by the ref, the arbitrator starts checking until the point that the contender comes back to his or her feet and can proceed. A few wards require the arbitrator to check to eight paying little heed to if the warrior gets up previously.

Should the official tally to ten, at that point the thumped down boxer is ruled “thumped out” (regardless of whether oblivious or not) and the other boxer is ruled the champ by knockout (KO). A “specialized thump out” (TKO) is conceivable too, and is managed by the official, battle specialist, or a warrior’s corner if a contender can’t securely keep on battling, in view of wounds or being made a decision about unfit to successfully safeguard themselves. Numerous locales and endorsing organizations additionally have a “three-knockdown govern”, in which three knockdowns in a given round outcome in a TKO. A TKO is viewed as a knockout in a warrior’s record. A “standing eight” include manage may likewise be impact. This gives the arbitrator the privilege to venture in and control a check of eight to a contender that he or she feels might be in threat, regardless of whether no knockdown has occurred. In the wake of checking the ref will watch the contender, and choose in the event that he or she is fit to proceed. For scoring purposes, a standing eight consider is dealt with a knockdown.

When all is said in done, boxers are disallowed from hitting unsportsmanlike, holding, stumbling, pushing, gnawing, or spitting. The boxer’s shorts are raised so the rival isn’t permitted to hit to the crotch zone with plan to cause torment or damage. Inability to submit to the previous may result in a foul. They likewise are restricted from kicking, head-butting, or hitting with any piece of the arm other than the knuckles of a shut clench hand (counting hitting with the elbow, shoulder or lower arm, and in addition with open gloves, the wrist, within, back or side of the hand). They are denied too from hitting the back, back of the head or neck (called a “rabbit-punch”) or the kidneys. They are precluded from holding the ropes for help while punching, holding a rival while punching, or dodging cowardly of their rival (dipping under the midriff of your rival, regardless of the separation between).

On the off chance that a “secure” – a guarded move in which a boxer wraps his or her rivals arms and clutches make a respite – is broken by the ref, every contender must make a full stride back before punching once more (then again, the ref may guide the warriors to “punch out” of the secure). At the point when a boxer is thumped down, the other boxer should quickly stop battling and move to the farthest impartial corner of the ring until the point when the official has either administered a knockout or required the battle to proceed.

Grids & Structure

We deploy grid-based layouts ‘behind the scenes’ in all our basic skins. The idea behind these layouts is to provide your website with a solid visual and structural balance from the word go.

These layout structures offer ample flexibility and enhance the visual experience for your visitors, and introduces an easy-to-follow consistency across your site, while allowing you to create and update both design and content in a well thought-out, standardised framework within the constraints of the browser.

Although it’s not always possible we do aim for a certain consistency when it comes to structuring a Tank site. We follow established naming conventions to enable logical hooks into the underlying structure of all our basic skins:

  • header
  • navigation
  • canvas
  • content
  • sidebar
  • footer

If you are familiar with CSS you can edit the properties of the underlying structure of your site easily.

Navigation & Architecture

The idea behind most navigation in a Tank site is that of context-sensitivity - which boils down to the fact that navigation will appear when and where is required. If you add a portfolio images will be thumb-nailed for you and be immediately navigable to larger views of the uploaded media. If you add a blog date archives, categories and RSS feeds will be present automagically. All you need to do is consider your content, and what you want to do with it.

Information architecture

Besides this approach the following options are available to further architect your information according to your requirements.

Global navigation

Content grouped into the global navigation is usually accessible via the menu structure in the header of a site and demarcates the most important information on your site. The good stuff goes here.

Utility navigation

Content grouped into the utility navigation is usually accessible via the menu structure in the footer of a site and demarcates the necessary or additional information on your site. Everything else goes here.

Hidden navigation

You can also set content to ‘hidden’ which means it’s only accessible if you either link to it or tell someone where to find it.

A blend between these three options enables you to build almost any site any way you want.

Text & Typography

We use a text-to-HTML conversion tool - a filter - that allows you to write using an easy-to-read, easy-to-write plain text format, which is converted it to structurally valid HTML for rendering on the web.

In a nutshell it means you use certain characters as formatting commands and you place these characters amongst your text to create certain effects (bolding text) and functionality (linking text).

E.g. headings

You can easily apply the full range of headers (h2 to h6) as follows:

# big heading
## smaller heading
##### smallest heading

E.g. formatting text

Formatting text - bolding text, italicizing text, or even striking text is quite simple. Simply use the basic formatting rules you’ve just seen and surround your text with the appropriate characters.


We utilise and deploy percentage-based text-sizing, popular font-stacks & web-safe fonts across all our sites. This means that your site is legible and readable from the get-go, but still customisable according to your specifications and personal taste.

Images & Galleries

There are two ways of displaying images in your site: ‘inline’ with the rest of your content, or in sortable collections in a dedicated ‘photo section’ of their own.

Inline images

Images attached to content appear ‘inline’; in other words in the content you place them. The image below has been placed just below this paragraph and is sized automatically according to the width of the container it’s placed in.

That means images look great no matter where you put them. No need to ‘size down’ anything - in fact we recommend uploading your images large enough to cater for higher resolutions.

Inline galleries & slide-shows

If multiple images are attached to content it is possible to ‘string’ these images together into an inline gallery or slideshow. It couldn’t be simpler or easier.

Collections of images

Images can also be placed in order-able collections inside a photo section - a slightly easier way to manage large sets of images as all images are thumb-nailed and placed automatically according to the dimensions of the current skin.
