Judo America Tournament Rules
Full matches: We want the participants to experience as many minutes as possible fighting and
developing their competitive Judo skills. I call this time in a match, or TIM. Therefore, ippon
does not end the match. This also encourages risk taking, and makes matches more dynamic and
exciting. Coaches have the prerogative to end a match if their students are overwhelmed.
No penalties: We want players to win by positive scores, not by getting their opponents
penalized. While there will be no scores via penalties, referees will be verbally admonishing the
players in a proactive manner, i.e. white attack, blue stand up, stay in the middle, white no stiff
arms, etc.
Leg grabs: All leg grabs are allowed provided tori starts with at least one grip on uke.
Gripping: All grips are allowed provided they are for offensive purposes.
Pins: After an ippon-scoring pin, the referee will call matte, stand the players back up, and call
hajime to continue the match.
Submissions: We recognize that many clubs that attend our tournaments teach submission skills
at an earlier age than what is generally accepted by tournaments that apply IJF rules. We will
allow chokes and/or armbars at an earlier age, provided both coaches agree. This agreement will
be on a match by match basis. The same will apply to novice adult players. As a general rule,
we encourage the development of standing Judo for younger competitors, so don’t expect
submissions for kids under 11. Since ippon doesn’t end a match, and for the safety of our
younger and novice players, referees may stop a submission before its full effectiveness or before
a player taps out.
Cumulative scores: To diminish the role of the referee’s subjective scoring judgment, (where no
number of yuko can ever be the equivalent of a waza ari), scores will be cumulative. Two yuko
will equal a waza ari, 2 waza ari will equal an ippon.
Gis: We allow for the wearing of any color judogi, including different colors for pants and jacket.
If you have kids wearing jiujitsu gis, make sure they are not full of patches, and that they adhere
to reasonable Judo standards. The new IJF gi size requirements will not be enforced.
T-shirts: No shirts for boys. Girls can wear any color undergarment they want, but please no
sparkles or gem stones.
Nail polish: Please make sure your girls are not wearing nail polish on fingers and especially
Belts: We will provide blue and white belts. However, you can help us out by bringing your own
white and blue belts too.
