British Masters / Veterans Judo Competition Rules

Masters/Veterans Rules Update

 

 

BJA, 10 May 2022:

Due to the safety aspects of this IJF rule change, British Judo management team have moved quickly to comply with this advice, the rule will operate as follows:  

  • To apply or attempt to apply shime-waza in categories where the category is exclusively for athletes of 60 years of age and over, the penalty will be Hansokumake, against the spirit of judo. (Expelled from the event category). 

  • In categories with under and over 60 years athletes, the athletes themselves must decide if it is safe for them to take part and if they do compete, they do so entirely at their own risk. 

  • In Dan gradings where the category is not exclusively 60 years or over, the athletes will again need to decide if it is safe for them to take part and if they do compete they do so entirely at their own risk. Dan gradings for exclusively 60 years and over will exclude shime-waza in the same way as competitions. 

  • Should an over 60 years athlete enter a category (for example) of over 50 years, the athlete does so entirely at their own risk. 

  • Over 60 years athletes practicing judo in other environments (e.g., training in a club environment) will need to make their own choice about inclusion and they do so entirely at their own risk.
