At the recent Rome Grand Prix, Jade Jones won the Women's -57 Kg final, with 14 points and 9 fouls made.

In a later interview she said that she was close to lose the fight by disqualification.

Is there a limit to the fouls that can be made in a combat? Reaching 10 fouls would disqualify and make her lose the match?

Yes, Article 14, bullet 7 states "When a contestant receives ten (10) “Gam-jeom”, the referee shall declare the contestant loser by referee’s punitive declaration (PUN)"

    It would help if you could add the relevant section of the rules, as well as the current date of ratification. As rules change, so may this answer. :)
