Rules

Modified IJF rules will govern the judo tournament.  IJF interpretation of transition between ne-waza and tachi-waza will be implemented.  Penalties shall be used to discourage negative judo and promote positive judo. 

A white uniform, white belt, and blue belt are required by all judoka.  Uniforms should cover the wrist and ankles.  No t-shirts should be worn under the uniform except for females who should have a white t-shirt.  Mouthguards are optional.  If you are assigned to white and have only a blue uniform, you could forfeit the match.  White and blue belts will be available for all participants.

Please note that we will be training and testing national referees at this event, so it is important to follow all uniform and etiquette rules set by the tournament director.
