Judo sparring is called randori, a japanese word. Normal randori can include throws, holds, chokes (for the over 13 crowd) and arm bars for the over 17 crowd. How the randori is practiced depends on the desired outcome. You could follow current tournament rules, which leads to stalling penalties and no real time for ground work, or, you can step onto the mat and fight standing and groudwork until your a puddle oozing over the corners of the mat. I prefer the latter. There is no striking in randori, however judo does include atemi waza.

Multi faceted practice
Sparring is recognised as randori.
There is however, in varying degrees, a co-operative relationship between the players that can modrate the way randori outwardly appears.
Uki (player that receives) and Tori (player that attacks) can agree on..
1. the intensity of the session
2. the intended outcome of the session (technique practice)
3. if the session is to be throws, grappling or entries from one to the other.
4. Attaining desired grip.
and so on....
When it is all thrown together however, there is little doubt what the objective of the bout is, and that is best defined through witnessing a contest which offers no co-operation.
It is here where the generating impulses are blurred by the objective of getting that victory, and preferably through a perfectly executed technique giving a full point score - IPPON! Fractions of this point also are awarded.
Hopefully the aforementioned practice has prepared the players to go "full bore" in their attempt to execute techniques without hurting themselves.
I think this description of the varying tempo of Judo practice can account for the confusion many spectators have when first enamoured of Judo.
My advice - Keep looking!

Judo has atemi waza? I've enver studied Judo Formally. However I did study Brazilian Jiu jutsu (currently and Aikido Practitioner) and have recently begun training with a few Judoka to compliment my Aikido and my occasionaly grappling match. But I never knew Judo had Atemi Waza. So wierdJoseph Dunkin
