What changes with the new rules
The standards do not change much for the 2022/2024 Olympiad regarding judogis. However, some points, such as the length of the jacket, will change. We explain!
The distance between the points where the jacket passes through the waistband must be 25 cm. Previously, it was 20 cm.
The bottom of the jacket should coverthe buttocks by 5 to 10 cm. Under the old standard, the jacket had to cover only the buttocks.
Judogis are checked 2 days before and on the day of the competition. The inspection carried out 2 days before the competition allows judokas who do not meet the standards to find a judogi that complies with the standards and to be able to put on their number. their number on the new judogis.
