Each dojo must provide one or more shinpan for every 10 participants.
However we always have not enough number of shinpan, so please provide
as many as possible.

Since many of kids are not aware of the time and court for their team’s match(es), Please have an adult with team at all times.

If your kids division team does not answer when called for their match, your kids team will automatically lost by default. Once your kids team loses by default, your team cannot have a make up match even if you arrive at the court later.

As a general rule, it is not possible to modify team members after registration. However,
for unforeseen situations such as injuries, the tournament committee will evaluate the
case and be in contact.

REGULATIONS

Tournament rounds will be single elimination.

The individual match is conducted according to SANBON-SHOBU, and the chief judge will announce its duration in the morning.

If no winner is determined within the duration, a draw will be declared.

Determination of the winning team will be made in the following order of precedence:
A) Higher number of individual winners; but, if breaks even, then
B) Higher number of points scored.
Should A and B turn out to be even, a one point match play-off (daihyo-sen, ippon
shobu) between representatives of the two teams will determine the winning team.
