During a process of deep studies and modernization, these Games have become the industry of sport.

These sports include Aqua O-Sport (the combination of struggling, swimming and passing through the barriers), Artistic O-Sport (The combination of shooting skills, passing through the barriers with acrobatic skills), Mind O-Sport (the combination of Dooz and others), and Combat O-Sport (the combination of self defense, shooting and martial arts skills ). These competitive techniques and disciplines have been named with the benefit of Persian words and ancient names of Iranian cities.
