On behalf of Expert Village, I am Angel Perez
with Champion Martial Arts in Miami, Florida. Today, we are talking about competitive Judo.
Now, for our next demonstration it’s basically the same thing. They are going to start off
competing. One will throw the other. This time it’s going to be a “wazadi”. It’s not
going to be “ipon”. Wazadi means a half-point. Two wazadis is the equivalent of ipon, match
is over, automatic point. Again, it’s the equivalent of a knock out or a submission,
a tap out, in a mixed Martial Arts bout. Normally that is very close to also being
a full point, or an ipon. The only difference is his legs really never lifted off the mat.
He did land on his back and he did take the fall. If you hit the mat, more often than
not, the referee will call ipon. So, even though we practiced that, it’s not something
that I recommend you do in the tournament. You must learn your falls. But, you should
not be breaking falls during a competition while you are on the mat competing.
