Extended match (e.g. Golden Score Contest)

  1. Conditions when an "overtime" (Golden Score) occurs
    (1) When neither contestant has shown dominance.
    (2) When both contestants draw a "Hansoku-make" simultaneously due to accumulated light penalties.
    (3) When one contestant draws an "Hansoku-make" due to accumulated light penalties, while simultaneously being awarded a "Sogo-gachi" (compound win).
    (4) In a team competition where both teams have the same number of winners and the same score, resulting in a "Draw". (This case uses a "sudden-death" format, with the contest starting again from the first contestants, and ending at the first loss. The remaining contestants do not engage.) A "Draw" is used in the first bout of team competitions, and in round robin competitions.
  2. The Golden Score contest period is 3 minutes, and is decided when either contestant is awarded a "Yuko", or when either contestant draws a 2nd "Shido". If both contestants have the same score at the end of 3 minutes, the winner is determined by decision (flag decision).
    In junior competitions, the contest period is 4 minutes, and the Golden Score contest period is 2 minutes.
  3. If neither contestant shows dominance in the overtime (Golden Score) contest, the winner is selected by decision.
  4. In the Golden Score period, an Ippon is called if an Osae-komi (hold-down) continues for 25 seconds. If a Toketa, Matte, or an effective Shime-waza / Kansetsu-waza is applied by either contestant before the above 25 seconds elapses, that contestant shall win by the points scored.
