The winning team is decided as follows:

1. The number of contests won.

2. If the number of contests won are equal, the sum of all achieved scores in the team will

decide, every ippon will count as 10 points and every waza-ari as 1 point.

Points will be given as follows:

a. Ippon Gachi/Fusen Gachi (opponent does not show up)/Kiken Gachi (opponent withdraws)10 points

b. Waza-ari 1 point
