4.    Events

(1) Randori (following the official JAA randori rules):

Group

Men’s Division: One team consists of 5 contestants. Each overseas organization (e.g. UK Shodokan, JAA USA) can be represented by one or two teams.

Momen’s Division: One team consists of 3 contestants. Each overseas organization can be represented by one team.

The ratio of men’s teams to women’s teams is 2:1; this has been decided based on the number of men’s and women’s teams that participated in the past tournaments.

The maximum number of men’s teams that can be fit into the day’s schedule will be 36, and the maximum for women’s teams will be 20. If more teams indicate their desire to participate, the tournament committee might be forced to make some adjustments.

Individual: The number of Japanese contestants will be restricted to 76 in the men’s division and 38 in the women’s division. No limit has been set on the number of contestants from other countries. However, if an unexpectedly great number of contestants apply, the tournament committee might be forced to make some adjustments.

(2) Embu (One-on-one contests will be held from the first-round through the final, as opposed to the judgment on points.)

Ikkyu or lower: Seventeen Basic Techniques (tai-toshu, i.e., uke without a knife; either men or women; no time restriction for performance)

Black belt: Seventeen Basic Techniques (tai-tanto, i.e., uke holding a knife; men or women; to be completed within 120 seconds)

Black belt: Koryu goshin no kata (i.e. Dai san no kata; eight sitting techniques + eight standing techniques; men or women; within 135 seconds)

Black belt: Free Style (uke without a knife; men or women; within 120 seconds; to be performed by one toshu and one uke)

(Shown in the bracket is the standard performance time. The failure to complete one’s performance within the indicated time per se does not result in a penalty.)

(3) Mixed Team Competition (Each organization can be represented by one team.)

The first match: Koryu goshin no kata (i.e. Dai san no kata; eight sitting techniques)

The second match: Koryu goshin no kata (i.e. Dai san no kata; eight standing techniques)

The third match: Men’s tanto-randori (the first/latter half is 60 seconds each; to be performed in the area of 32 tatami mats)

The fourth match: Women’s tai-sabaki (30 seconds each; in the area of 32 tatami mats)

The fifth match; Men’s toshu-randori (a total of 120 seconds; in the area of 32 mats)

Notes:

1. In the embu tournament, each pair of performers can participate in only one event; no pair will be allowed to participate in two or more events.

2. Those who participate in the mixed team competition may participate in either an embu or randori tournament as well.

3. The randori referees and judges are not allowed to participate in the randori tournament as contestants. The kata judges will not be allowed to participate in the kata tournament as contestants.

4. The individual randori tournament and the embu tournament are scheduled for October 9 (i.e. from the first-round matches through the final), and the group randori tournament and the mixed team competition are scheduled for October 10. However, there may be changes depending on the number of applications for participation in each category of events.

There are several hotels and minshuku inns in the same area, but if you prefer to stay in such accommodations, you will have to make the reservations for yourself and your party. The committee will later try to provide information about the names and types of the major housing facilities.
