Kodokan Gokyo no waza

The gokyo is the basic syllabus used by the kodokan for throwing techniques. It was originally devised in 1895, and revised in 1920. It currently comprises five sets of eight techniques.

The first set, dai ikkyo, teaches the most fundamental principles and must be learned first.
Once a particular set can be performed well, and the student understands the movements and concepts involved in the throws, they are ready to move on to the following set, which builds on what they have already learned.
