2013 Rule Modifications

There have been a couple modifications in the rules since last years nationals. Here is a link to the changes:

The IJF has just set new Gi guidelines also and can be accessed using the above link.

Training Opportunities

If you are like a lot of master players it is hard finding training partners to prepare for the big events. Several clubs in the Mid-West region open their doors for camps prior to Senior Nationals. This is a great chance to train with different players and to build relationships with your fellow master players. If you know of other clubs in your region that are also conducting camps please let us know and we will get the word out.

2014 USA Judo Senior Nationals

At this years Championships, we will have a separate table / area for pre-registered athletes only. Walkups will still have to go through the normal registration process. If you preregister it will speed up your registration process and will allow us to organize the pools in a more timely fashion. The plan is to run the regular shiai, except the finals,take a 45-60 minute break. Then the finals will be held and after that the masters will begin. They will not be able to give an exact time, but based on the number of competitors we should know a fairly accurate estimate. This should allow all master competitors a chance to properly prepare for their matches.

We will have a communication meeting so any Master Athlete can discuss concerns they have. This will also give Commission members a chance to introduce themselves.
