Judo was a good articles nominee, but did not meet the good article criteria at the time. There are suggestions below for improving the article. Once these issues have been addressed, the article can be renominated. Editors may also seek a reassessment of the decision if they believe there was a mistake.

I don't know about a run-on sentence, this is a marathon.
Further, it evolved to greatly emphasize the ground aspect of judo, Judo Newaza, while disassociating itself with karate (see Gichin Funakoshi's friendship with Jigoro Kano) and various other forms of striking or attacking a vital point in favor of takedowns from both Judo and later from universal grappling moves such as double legs and virtually any form of takedown to get to the judo-newaza technique variations outlined by the Gracie family. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 10:46, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
So it's mentioned that an ippon is 100pts, while a waza-ari is 10pts, but two waza-ari add up to an ippon? Someone should clarify this. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 15:41, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
It appears to be confusion resulting from the way the scores are displayed, i.e. 011 = 0 ippons, 1 waza-ari, 1 yuko. I have removed the erroneous information.CatfishJim and the soapdish 18:31, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
The duration of pins that is mentioned to score ippon, waza-ari or yuko clashes with the articles for these scores: this article mentions 20 seconds for ippon, 15 seconds for waza-ari and 10 seconds for yuko whereas, the individual articles for these scores respectively mention 25 seconds, 20 seconds, and 15 seconds — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheCois (talk • contribs) 20:31, 2 August 2013 (UTC)
User:Catfish_Jim_and_the_soapdish: Some of the links that you removed from the 'See also' section are already incorporated in the article, so removing them here makes sense (the Olympics and World Championships, for example). Judo in Canada and Judo in the United Kingdom are not, however, and until such time there is a section of the article that addresses Judo in specific countries, these links should remain in the 'See also' section.CanadianJudoka (talk) 18:25, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
(Edit conflict... I hate when that happens) I've removed some of the links in this section as they were unnecessary. The Canon of Judo is one of my favorite judo books, but it doesn't need a link here. Judo in the United Kingdom and Judo in Canada are undoubtedly interesting subjects, but as per the MOS, we need to use common sense when assessing what to link to... there are hundreds of countries in which judo is practiced and we cannot include them all, nor is it necessary to for the sake of this article. The other removed subjects are, I believe, covered sufficiently in the main body of text. CatfishJim and the soapdish 18:31, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
I agree that it wouldn't be reasonable to list all of the countries where Judo is practised there, but I saw it as a temporary measure that is acceptable for the moment because there are only three articles on Judo in specific countries at the moment (these two and on on Judo in India). The main purpose of putting them there was to make editors and readers who are interested in Judo aware of the articles' existence. Maybe what needs to be done is to create an article (maybe a list) titled 'Judo by country' that can be linked in the 'See also' section here and then serve as directory of this type of article, prefaced with a discussion of the diffusion of Judo outside of Japan. I will be working on the 'Judo in Canada' article over the next few months when time permits, and I hope that it will be used as a model for similar articles. I would particularly like to see articles on Judo in France, Russia, Brazil, the United States, and of course Japan. CanadianJudoka (talk) 18:43, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Thanks for creating the list. I think that it would be a good idea to start a WikiProject for Judo sometime down the road to improve Wikipedia's coverage of Judo; articles on Judo by country alone could keep a group of people busy for a while. Let me know if you'd be interested in participating. CanadianJudoka (talk) 20:08, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Catfish - I like your changes to my arm bar section. Yep, that's me! An America. ;) Tanya((♫)) 23:12, 23 August 2012 (UTC)
Quote: A judo teacher is called sensei (先生?). The word sensei comes from sen or saki (before) and sei (life) – i.e. one who has preceded you. Unquote
When I studied Chinese at university, my lecturer from Beijing said that 先生 xiansheng means 'first born'. Perhaps these are not the correct characters for sensei in Japanese. 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:55, 4 April 2013 (UTC)
There are so many Japanese characters in the article it's hard to read. Since most of the words transcribed are links to the respective articles, anyone who should want to compare the transcription with the original can do so in those articles. Is it OK if I remove all Japanese characters from here, except for the ones for judo? The Other Saluton (talk) 21:02, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
I would personally object to that and don't think it's necessary. However, if this was debated properly and there was consensus for such a move, I wouldn't stand in its way. CatfishJim and the soapdish 21:55, 7 September 2013 (UTC)
