Sensei, Coach, Referee,
We will be using at least 2 new 2018 contest rules for the SJB Sensei Memorial Tournament:
1. Two Wazaari are equivalent to Ippon
2. All leg-grabs are Shidos
First leg grab/block is shido
Second leg grab/block is 2nd shido
Third leg grab/block is 3rd shido and Hansokumake.
We invite you to join us at the referee clinic on Saturday, at 2:00 PM at the Event Center in the aerobics room.  Mr. Robert Fukuda, Ms Barbara Shimizu and Mr. Calvin Terada will be discussing these two rules and other rules that will be put into effect in 2018. You can also join us for the referee meeting on Sunday morning at 8:00 AM in the aerobics/official’s room prior to the tournament.
Please distribute this information to others.
Thank you,
Vaughn Imada
