Judo Explainer - 2017 Summer Universiade
Judo is scored based on each player’s technique: one full point (ippon) or one half point (waza-ari.)
To earn one point, a player must execute a throwing technique resulting with their opponents being thrown on their backs with considerable force and speed, or maintain a pin for 20 seconds with applied pressure across the elbow, forcing the opponent to surrender. One half point is earned when the opponent lands only partly on the back or with less force than required, or only maintaining a pin between 10 to 19 seconds.
Penalties result in warnings. After three warnings are received, the victory is given to the opponent. At the end of a match, the competitor with the highest score wins. If there is a tie, a period of Golden Score ensues, and whoever scores first wins.
