    The Complete Seven Katas of Judo by Mikinosuke Kawaishi

    This would be a good start.

    I have researched gonosen-no-kata with a friend as part of some scholarly work. The results of our research at present are unsatisfactory. Hence the part is still missing in my book manuscript and we also have not published about it. Most of what is written about gonosen-no-kata is based on hearsay and nonverifiable populist sources. Of course nothing prevents someone from merely approaching as a set of mechanistic movements in a certain order with nothing further to it. Given Kawaishi's fondness of this kata and his further still not fully defined relationship with this kata, I would echo Jihef's suggestion to go to his book, although one has to take in mind that Kawaishi did not write this book himself ! It was written by someone else based on what the person understood of Kawaisthin's notes, explanations, etc. So, one has to be very carefully deducing things such as "Well, Kawaishi said in his book that ...". It's somewhat similar than the 1986 and 1956 Kôdôkan Illustrated books supposedly by Kanô Jigorô. Obviously Kanô never wrote such a book and had been dead for half a century in 1950.

    Furthermore there are several recordings on YouTube which Jonesy has carefully collected for us and which are listed in this kata subforum.

    You would always also ask wdax who has demonstrated the kata before.

    There are no really good and reliable sources. This is as good as anything:
