Cliffs: Duration of all contests are 4 minutes, rather than 5. Yuko has been taking out of the scoring systems. Only Ippon and waza-ari 10 second hold down as a waza-ari, 20 second hold down is declared as ippon Judo matches can only be won on scores, not on penalties. Matches go to golden score if both fighters just have shidos. 3 shidos now equate to a DQ, not 4. More grips have been made available such as pistol grips, end of the sleeve grips and two on one grips are all allowed for 45 secs, but still no inside the sleeve grips. You have to attack as long as you are gripping, refs will be stricter with fighters playing defensively and give shidos to them if they are just sitting back while sustaining these grips. First leg grab (intentionally or not) while result in a shido, the second time this happens it will be a DQ. Thoughts?
