Judo is an educational sport by excellence. In Judo, we always dedicate time and attention to educating and this is one of our main activities. Within the International Judo Federation, we created the IJF Academy, with the aim of educating coaches, help former judokas continue their path in our sport as coaches. The Academy is an important tool that helps us spread the knowledge and values of judo all over the world, including countries with less tradition and experience in our sport, but with a great potential and desire to develop judo. Started four years ago, the IJF Academy had an excellent progress and very good results. One third of our members are using the courses of the Academy, some countries even organizing their own national courses or teaming up with other countries for regional courses. The current number of graduates is close to and it continues increasing. With its customized curriculum and state-of-the-art on-line theory courses, available in more and more languages, the Academy has become a real instrument, a benefit for the IJF as well as for the National Federations and our sport in general. For the financial support of these courses we partnered up with Olympic Solidarity and the National Olympic Committees, securing a maximum and optimal participation of all the students. I would like to urge all the IJF Member National Federations to continue or start using the IJF Academy in order to educate a healthy and high-level generation of coaches, that will contribute later to the development of our sport from grass-roots to elite level, at a standard and generally accepted, correct level. About us. Marius L. Vizer IJF President. Official IJF Partners.
New IJF Rules for 2018-2020 analysed
I'm convinced the new elements of the rules and judo methodic will be a great benefit for the judo family, spectators, partners and media. In a cooperation between JudoInside and JudoCrazy judo analyst Oon Yeoh has gone through the 10 key elements of the renewal of the rules. Check out for yourself what implications they have on you. Waza-Ari-Awasatte-Ippon is being reinstated. That means two waza-ari equals ippon. Yuko has not been reinstated. That means what was formerly yuko is considered waza-ari. Under previous rules when uke rolls over his back, a waza-ari would be given. Under the new rules it seems there is such a thing as a rolling ippon provided "there is no break during the landing". Bridging on the back by uke has long resulted in ippon. But in the past year, referees having been giving hansoku-make for uke landing on the front of his head. I guess you could call this a front bridge. For throws like drop seoi-nage, drop sode and drop koshi-guruma, sometimes uke's head just hits the mat whether he likes it or not. In such cases, it's not hansoku-make. There is a type of osaekomi ocassionally seen whereby tori has both legs underneath uke. This used to be recognized as a legitimate hold-down. Not anymore. This is not osaekomi anymore. Golden score can only be won by a technical score waza-ari or ippon or hansoku-make. This one is a bit vague but it seems that shido cannot win during Golden Score anymore. Only waza-ari, ippon and hansoku-make can decide a contest. If this interpretation is correct it means that during Golden Score, assuming both players have no scores and no shido, the match doesn't end even if someone gets one or two shidos. Only scores and hansoku-make count.
