English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Japanese 効果 (kōka).

Noun[edit]

koka (countable and uncountable, plural kokas)

  1. (judo) The smallest technical score that can be awarded in a judo competition.
    • 1978, AAU Official Rules, Judo, Amateur Athletic Union of the United States, page 15:
      The referee shall announce "koka" (almost yuko) when in his opinion the technique applied by the contestant merits the score of koka (almost yuko). Should either contestant score two or further kokas, then the referee shall announce them as they are scored but shall not stop the contest for that reason.
    • 2008, Roy Inman, The Judo Handbook, page 25:
      As with yukos, kokas are not accumulative, so no amount of kokas are deemed equal to or greater than a yuko.
