This paper is concerned with the case studies on Final and Semi-final in All Japan Judo Championship 2019, and is analyzing the relevant data in terms of the information dynamic model.  The Final is a typical balanced game, which is finished by the Golden Score, while the Semi-final is classified as one-sided game. In the Semi-final, it has been shown that the winner gets the safety lead against the loser at the normalized time η0.8, which means that outcome of this match becomes definite at the stage, 80% of the total game length. It is inferred that in the All Japan Judo Championship, the sudden death of both players will occur, but drawn game cannot be expected anymore, as far as the current refereeing rules are sustained. It is realized that the present approach is promising to predict the history and outcome of any game before it starts, so that it is useful for preparing the tactics or strategy for future games.
