Competition Format, Rules and Judogi Rules
The intended method of elimination for this event will be knockout with compound repechage.

IJF Rules will be in operation. Please note the following:
• No 30 second rule
• Judogi measurements as per 2019 IJF rules. With the exception of 5cm above the wrist joint.
• 2019 IJF Red label judogi rules or the requirement to wear judogi of specific suppliers will not be rules at this competition.
• The Welsh Open Championships will be strictly adhering to the mat side coaching rule in all categories. In the following way: Coaches in the official mat side position can only advise the athlete during the mate-hajime period and NOT while the contest is in progress. Should any mat side coach not adhere to this guideline they will firstly be reminded of this rule by the referee and on receiving the second reminder in the same contest will need to remove themselves to the general public area for the rest of the event on that day. Other personnel who insist on shouting coaching points will also need to remove themselves to the general public seating area.
The wearing of white & blue judogi is not compulsory for this event.

This Tournament qualifies for points scoring for promotion purposes.

Seeding for the Junior and Senior event will be based on the current GB Ranking list
