Osaekomi! 抑え込み

Every bit matters! Just like in osaekomi, every second in a pin counts! $10 is enough to cover a meal, and we will be counting those up for sure!


Randori 取り

Randori, or free sparring, is crucial to learning judo, and these donations will be too! $50 is enough money to cover the cost of a one-month membership at the Kodokan, a little more than a day's worth of food, or nearly one night at a sharehouse for a judoka!


Waza-ari! 技あり

A half score doesn't sound like much, but when one score wins a match, half is a lot! $100 is enough to cover a bus ticket to the airport, two and a half days of meals, or one week at a sharehouse!


Ippon! 一本

Full score! Enough to end a match! These donations secure our trip, like ippons secure placement on a podium! $500 is more than enough to cover a judoka's full stay at a share house, twelve and a half days of meals, and one third of a plane ticket!


Ichiban! 一番

It's not easy to win a judo tournament, nor is it to donate this much money. These donors are certainly number one in our hearts, and we hope the experience they are sponsoring creates champions out of us too! $1000 can cover two-thirds of the cost of a plane ticket, the full cost of two judoka's stay in a sharehouse, or six days of meals for all four judokas!


Joseki 上席

Joseki refers to high officials and honored guests, and those who are able to donate these large sums a certainly honored guests to us! $3600 is enough to cover the full cost of this trip for one of our four judokas!
