Randori no Kata

Comprised of nage no kata and katame no kata, this covers techniques which, with the exception of Ashi garami, may be used in randori and competitions. Each of these throws are performed right handed, then left handed before moving on to the next throw. The original forms of these kata were developed by Jigoro Kano between 1884 and 1887

Nage no kata has five sets of three techniques, with three representative throws taken from each type. Katame no kata has three sets, each with five techniques taken from each classification of grappling techniques.

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.
