The current Judo rules


There have been lots of referee/rules questions lately. I just wanted to give a link to the current IJF rules publication intended to cover 2014-2016. There are slight interpretation differences and clarifications for USJF/America/Northwest Yudanshakai etc but this pretty much covers all the nitty gritty details.

It is not exciting reading, but anyone who skims through it will be guaranteed to learn something they didn’t know.
