Two students grappling in the yongmudo competition
12th Annual UC Yongmudo Championship
NCJA Western Collegiate Judo Championships

February 24, 2018

The anchor of this tournament is the UC Yongmudo Championship, an event that mixes various types of sparring with a skit competition. Its four rounds of advanced sparring includes a kicking and punching round reminiscent of taekwondo, a round of standing throws reminiscent of judo, a grappling or ground wrestling round, and a round that combines elements of the first three in a round that is simply known as "the yongmudo round." Beginning and intermediate students compete in a subset of these rounds depending on their level of expertise.

This year, we will also be hosting the National Collegiate Judo Association's Western Collegiate Judo Championships, which leads to the National Collegiate Judo Championships at Iowa State University on March 11.
