    In a judo tournament one guy wears a blue belt to help tell the corners apart. Sometimes they leave their rank belt on and sometimes they don't.

    Sometimes they also change one corner into a blue top or a full blue gi

    and sometimes the extra color is red instead of blue, (more traditional IIRC) but that is never used for a gi

    If it's any consolation, it looks like your osaekomi could use some work. You're still holding the positions BJJ style, which is why he twisted out twice.

    Toss some variety in there. Try to imitate Kashiwazaki even moreso.

    This is really interesting to me because I recently did a judo tournament where I deliberately limited myself from using sacrifice throws. Wanted to really test my judo. Well, I sucked miserably and got thrown for wazari multiple times and ippon a couple. My question to you is - should I just give in and build a game around sacrifice throws? I really want to be that big o goshi guy, but the ground is clearly my advantage.

    at the promotionals for my yudanshakai, they use the red belt, but for some reason that i can't fathom, they still refer to the player in the red belt as the "blue player."

    are they being confusing on purpose?

    They are "breaking the rules."

    The IJF mandate for having a blue and a white player was years ago. By now every player is to have two uniforms, one white and one blue. Clearly this is not being enforced, but it is the rule.

    No idea why they are using the red belt.

    I will say that scoring errors drop big time when you use the white gi/blue gi system. Some hard core Japanese types have major problems with the blue gi, and refuse to wear it.

    The blue gi is optional at local and regional tournaments. The tournament director can require them, but most won't .

    If you go to nationals, a ladder tournament, or other point tournament in the US at least, you will need two judogi, one blue, one white.

    Other than that, nobody rush out and buy two judogi for competing.

    Stop practicing sutemi waza and focus on other throws. That would help.

    He made a legit attack, so it is not a penalty. He clearly was intending to throw, so it was not a false attack.

    I'm going to be really honest with you here. No way should you be a sankyu at this point, based on that performance. OK for yonkyu, but marginal. You obviously know more ne waza from your bjj training, but your throwing needs to catch up closer to your ne waza.

    Note that all this is just my opinion and standards, and is not a slam on you personally or SHUFU's standards.

    Congrats on the promotion!
