IJF Video Clarifications of 2014 Rule Changes

Sunday February 16th, 2014


Here are some video clips from the IJF on how to the new rule changes are to be applied.

Please note that Judo Canada as indicated in their earlier memo will not be implementing the Judogi sizing rules as shown in clip #1 nor the “Shido-on-the-Spot” procedure as noted in clip#11.

Following a brief phase-in learning period, it is the intention of the Judo Ontario Referee Committee to start applying all the newly revised IJF Regulations including the “Shido-on-the-Spot” procedure starting with the Kohbukan-Sisu Annual Shiai on March 1, 2014. 
Implementation of the new judogi sizing regulations will be postponed until September 1, 2014 at the earliest in Ontario.
Dojo-shus and Coaches are strongly encouraged to educate and train judokas within their dojos on these revised IJF Rules.
