Background. Judo bouts were observed many times and in different aspects. Although still is little known about the typical errors made by top judokas during the struggle and the differences between seniors and juniors in aspect of amount and type of these errors. The aim of this study was to determine the most common technique and tactical errors and their manifestations that occurring during judo bouts. Material and methods. Observation and the Estimate-Talk-Estimate (ETE) method were the two basic methods of data collecting. Two different groups of competitors (seniors and juniors) were observed. A total of 85 bouts (58 junior bouts and 27 senior bouts) were analysed. Observations were made within 2006-2008. An Errors Identity Protocol of our own device was used to determine the manifestations of errors. Results. The findings suggest that senior competitors made the same amount of errors as juniors but that the manifestation of errors were different. Moreover, points given by referees in the form of different penalties are of great importance in judo bouts. The observation carried out observation shows also that the type of action related to the highest number of points is throwing. It gives 80% of the points from all actions at junior tournaments and 61% in senior tournaments (P=0.010). The second activity related to 10% of points obtained in all junior actions are points awarded to opponent for noncompliance with the bout rules. In comparison 29% of all points were for penalties to the opponent in senior bouts. In this respect the test again showed a significant difference (P=0.002). Conclusions. The results indicate that the route to victory for juniors and seniors varies in terms of what should be considered by coaches.
