There are three events in one age group namely Single Soti, Fari-Soti and Weapon demonstrations. Each event is played as individually and team event. Hence there becomes six events in some age groups. As sub-junior players are under 14 years, that is why the Federation has allowed only four events i.e. Single Soti (Individual), Farri-Soti (Individual) and Weapon demonstrations in individual & team event only. Whereas above Junior level, there are six events in all age groups which are as follows :-
