2019 Kodokan Spring Kohaku-shiai

A traditional event, Kodokan Spring Kohaku-shiai (Contest between Red & White), was held on a large scale at Kodokan on June 2, 2019.


About 500 people signed up for the contest. There were three divisions: Men's, Women's, and Boys & Girls'. In each division, winners played matches until they lost or their matches ended in a draw.


The Red team won in the Men's division and the Boys' and Girls' division, while the White team won in the Women's division.

There is a unique system called "Batsugun-shodan (instant promotion)" in Kodokan Kohaku-shiai. Using the system, participants who win a predefined number of times by Ippon can get a higher Dan grade on that day. This time, five participants were awarded Batsugun-shodan.
