Did You know that?
- JudoShiai software is designed and programmed by Mr. Hannu Jokinen. JudoShiai software has been the foundation of all Finnish judo competitions since 2009 when first tournaments were held using this software. During years 2009 and 2010 Mr. Erkki Jokikokko was the "ambassador" of the software - testing it in dozens of tournaments and giving his opinion of new features to be built in the software. During these early years Erkki was also invited to have many seminars abroad. It was the era when www.judoshiai.fi site you are using right now was born - Original and The One and Only!

- Hannu Jokinen has never done a real ukemi. He has no background on tatami. When his little girl Anniina Jokinen started judo and competing was Hannu "forced" to be an official in club competitions. He was surprised that there was no good software available. Now we know the story and what happened after that. JudoShiai software was taking it's first steps. During her judo career won Anniina altogether six Finnish titles in varying age categories.
- Erkki Jokikokko is a long term black belt judoka. During last eight years he has focused on coaching.

- No organization has supported us with the development process of the software and maintaining our web page www.judoshiai.fi - not even Finnish Judo Association. We are at this stage on our own - as a result of hobbies of Hannu and Erkki. No financial support - not a dime. And don't even try to calculate working hours those two dudes are spending annually to serve you and judo community.
- You can support us by donating - give us a gift. How does it sound to give 10€ both to the projects annually? Even €uro would help. It's a small amount of money to spent for using services we are creating and maintaining to you. It will also help us making further development. Think!
