The way the scoring goes, I know I'll be off a point or so on how they do it, is 2 points for the take down,
3 for rolling the guy over so you're on top now,
3 for side mount,
4 for mount,
4 for taking the back,
and 3 for putting your knee on their stomach, (it's another way to show dominance and control).
Everything has to be held for 3 second so it shows you have control and it's not a scramble. For example the one match I had the guy rolled me over and almost got mount but I sat up before he could establish control and it nullified his attempt.
You get no points for Attempting a lock or choke. You get what is called an advance and what that is, is when it is a draw, the guy that showed the most attempts to submit and was close to doing so will win.
Now some of the points my be off by 1 but the score doesn't go lower than 2.
My no Gi match was 3-6 and my friend won.
My first Gi match was 14-6 and I almost got him in an arm bar and a triangle choke but they were very sloppy and I was getting tired.
The next/last match was 20-3 and I made that guy my bitch. It was cool, with like 30 seconds left in the last match I said F' it I'll keep this standing and just punish him. So I was able to get up and I took a couple steps back and the guy gets up and charges me.... Now just picture a Steven Segal movie where he launches the guy like 5 feet across the room and that's what I did. It couldn't have been easier the guy was just real mad and lost sight of what his game plan was. So, when he charged at me I chucked him 4 feet and he almost landed outside the ring. Then I realized that there was still some time left and I jumped on him and got more points. I can't wait till my first Judo competition.
