Volleyball, as presented in the Tokyo 1964 Olympics. Thus, this version uses sideout rules, which are not used in official matches nowadays, meaning that the side which serves gets points if they attack successfully.

In Judo, you must keep your balance (shown with the balance gauge), and when the grabbed side loses their balance, you can throw them. The key to victory is your distance and keeping your balance.
