Judo Kata Information

According to the International Judo Federation, "There are seven formal kata in judo, and each technique in each kata is practiced in a precise and prescribed manner. Two of the kata - nage no kata (forms of throwing) and katame no kata (forms of grappling) demonstrate many of the basic principles underlying all the contemporary judo throwing and grappling techniques in current use to-day. As such, they are also known as randori no kata, or the forms of randori, because of the easy translation to randori techniques. All other kata, however, involve techniques that are not seen in contemporary judo practice. The kime no kata, for example, involves techniques of striking, kicking, punching, and techniques with weapons - a short and long sword. Likewise, koshiki no kata is a kata of battlefield attack and defense. It simulates various techniques when you are wearing body armor… Proficiency in some kata, typically the nage no kata, is usually required by many national federations of judo around the world for promotion to shodan, or 1st degree black belt. Many of the other kata, especially katame no kata, ju no kata (forms of gentleness), and kime no kata (forms of decisiveness) are generally required for higher rank promotions."
