• The scoring techniques in judo training is mostly used Ashi-waza; therefore, it is recommended that coaches and judo players have more movements of Ashi-waza as a part of the warm-up during the training, such as De-Ashi-Harai, Okuri-Ashi-Harai, and Sasae-Tsurikomi-Ashi.
• Osae-komi-waza is the second most that judo players got points from the games and it takes up a certain proportion of the whole game. It is recommended that coaches and judo players can strengthen the training, such as suppressing one judo player with two to three players to improve the training intensity. Coaches and judo players can try from different angles in Shime waza and Kansetsu waza to increase the training weight.
• Sutemi-waza which has a higher score or wins the games was used less by Taiwanese judo players. To face the diversity of international judo players’ techniques, it is suggested that coaches and judo players should increase the proportion of Sutemi-waza training in their usual training and competitions.
