    Kodokan Autumn Kohaku-jiai 2014
    October 31, 2014

    An annual event, Kodokan Autumn Kohaku-jiai (Contest between Red & White) was held on a grand scale at the Kodokan on Sunday, October 13, 2014.
    We received 584 applications, and contests were held for respective divisions: Men's, Women's and Boys & Girls. Matches were held one by one in each contest, and winners fought succeeding matches until they lost or "Hikiwake" (draw).
    There is a unique system called "Batsugun-shodan (instant promotion by preeminence)" in Kodokan Kohaku-jiai. Using the system, participants who won a predefined number of matches by Ippon are able to get a higher Dan grade on the same day. To qualify a competitor must score a certain number of Ippon throughout several matches, with the specific number of these points determined by the ranks of his/her opponents.

    The following four participants accomplished outstanding results and achieved Batsugun-shodan:

    -From 1st Dan to 2nd Dan
    TSUTADA Mr. Katsuto TSUTADA (20 years old)
    Belongs to: Nippon Sport Science University
    Judo history: Promoted to 1st Dan in February 2009
    Results: Defeated two 1st Dan holders and six 2nd Dan holders

    -From 2nd Dan to 3rd Dan
    NAKANISHI Mr. Reo NAKANISHI (22 years old)
    Belongs to: Nippon Sport Science University
    Judo history: Promoted to 2nd Dan in May 2013
    Results: Defeated seven 2nd Dan holders


    SUNADA Mr. Yuto SUNADA (20 years old)
    Belongs to: Kokushikan University
    Judo history: Promoted to 2nd Dan in December 2012
    Results: Defeated six 2nd Dan holders

    Is that an unbleached KuSakura judogi in the top left of P-10? It's not visible on the online shop. Can someone who reads Japanese read the text there?



    I know that they make their lowest beginners model with an unbleached option, but if there's some way to order one of the sturdy pro models in unbleached that would be excellent.

    The pic you posted just shows a Kusakura gi, doesn't specify if unbleached.

    Interesting - these are new printed cards of Kanô shihan's final instructions ikun with the original penned by Kanô Yukimitsu, Kanô shihan's grandson and fourth Kôdôkan kanchô.

    Not cheap, at over ¥20,000.

    The one on the left looked less starkly white than the others so I was not sure. From what I could make out of the text in Japanese there was no mention of anything to do with bleaching, indeed. Just judôgi KuSakura and weights.

    The prints look very nice, though they were not yet in the international shop last I looked.

    The Kodokan International Judo Seminar 2015 and the Judo Seminar for JICA Volunteers started on Monday, March 2nd. The total number of participants was nine: two coaches who were dispatched from Tunisian Judo Federation, and seven candidates for JICA volunteers who will teach Judo abroad. They will study various things related to Judo - its history, basic technique, application technique, Kata, various coaching methods and so on - from morning to night, until March 25th.

    JICA is the Japan International Cooperative Agency - they've been sending judo instructors abroad for extended tours for decades. While they aren't a lot of them, collectively they've done an incredible job of spreading judo around the world. I've met some of the guys, they have some great stories of the places they go, people they meet, etc. I'm sure they've changed a lot of lives. Some are retired guys who are on a lark for a couple of years, others are younger pro judo instructors broadening their experience. Great program, greatly effective at soft power diplomacy for a pittance, as they sure don't make much money.

    One from Judoka Quaterly FCB page - Im not able give here the link to the picture - is not public, I think.

    "If one wins in accord with the Way, or even if one loses in accord with the Way, one is not defeated.
    Even if one loses while acting in accord with the Way, there is greater value than if one wins by departing from the Way."
