19 Oct 2016
A traditional event, Kodokan Autumn Kohaku-shiai (Team Contest between Red & White) was held on a grand scale at the Kodokan on Sunday, October 16th.
We received applications from 465 male participants and 100 female participants, and contests were held for respective divisions: Men's, Women's and Boys & Girls. Matches were held one by one in each contest, and winners fought in succeeding matches until they lost, or until their match ended in a draw.
The teams won the title in each division were as follows: Men's division, Red team; Boys and Girls division, White team; Women's division, White team.
There is a unique system called "Batsugun-shodan (instant promotion by preeminence)" in Kodokan Kohaku-shiai. This time, it was not applied.
