March 11, 2021, 3:20 p.m. (ET)

Due to the cancellation of various senior national events over the last year and a half, High Performance has been working with the Athletes Representatives on the USA Judo Board of Directors to temporarily adjust the USA Judo International Tournament Criteria.

The Continental Open Tournaments will now be open to all USA Judo registered black belts from March 11, 2021 until May 31, 2021. As of June 1, 2021, the original criteria will go back in to effect, meaning that athletes must be on the current Senior National Elite Team Roster in order to qualify for Continental Opens.
