If you have red my last post "5 ways to win a Judo match", you already know what it's your goal to win. Now you have to learn these new japanese words:
- Hajime: Start
- Mate: Stop
- Ippon: Full point score, if you get an Ippon you win, so the fight is over.
- Waza-Ari: Half point score. The fight isn't over.
- Waza Ari Awasete Ippon: 2 Waza-Ari equal and Ippon, and you win.
- Yuko!: The lowest score. They aren't acumulative.
- Shido: penalty, if you get 2 shido is aYuko for you opponent, 3 a Waza Ari, 4 an Ippon, consequently, he wins.
- Osaekomi: The hold down has just started.
- Toketa: The hold down is over.
- Sore Made: The time is over. End of match.
By the way, here you have an example of very short Judo Match (only some seconds) where Howey from Great Britain beats the Japanese Ueno to get the Bronze Medal in the Judo World Championships at Birmingham 1999. The technique that she used isn't allowed in the new Judo rules (you cannot grab the legs directly), but it's still a massive throw.
