What is Soremade?

“Soremade” (Time up) is called by the referee to signal the end of a contest. Both contestants must immediately cease fighting when the referee calls “Soremade” (Time up).

Both contestants must then rearrange their uniforms while returning to their contest start lines. They then stand facing each other and take the natural posture. After the referee declares the decision by announcement and indication, or by announcement and gesture, each contestant must take one step back with the right foot, and perform a “Ritsu-rei” (Standing bow) toward the opponent.
