The goal of AAU Judo is to create a venue for competition that is fun and enjoyable for all athletes and non-athletes alike. Enhancing the complete athletic experience through organized competitions, rather than politics, will always be the primary objective.
Some highlights of the AAU Judo guidelines are as follows:
· No belt rank promotions
· Weight disparities in any division should be as close to 10% whenever possible
· Chokes ages are 11 and over; Arm bars ages are 15 and over
· Weight in pounds, not kilograms
Youth divisions (ages 20 and under) should use a combination of age and weight factors along with AAU 10 PERCENT RULE to insure the most equitable possible
pairing. Discretion and vigilance advised.
