Kodokan goshin jutsu

Finalised in 1956, this kata was developed to be a contemporary self-defence kata, as Kime no kata was in earlier eras.

The first section is toshu (unarmed), and the techniques are either kumi tsukareta bai (when held) or hanareta bai (at a distance).

The secons section is buki (with weapons) and the techniques deal with attacks by tanto (dagger or knife), tsue (cane or walking stick) and kenshu (pistol).

The Kodokan produces DVDs which to help learn this kata. Unfortunately, they are difficult to find in the UK at the moment. This excerpt shows the initial demonstration of the kata. The DVD then teaches each technique in detail.
