    Kata (form) is a prearranged set of techniques to teach, learn and practice the techniques and principles of Judo and to blend/harmonize (ri ai) them by practicing.

    Learning how to defend and to counter is a very important part of Randori/Shiai and elegant, smart and smooth,

    showing the principles of "Ju no Ri"  (principle of the soft/flexible/yielding",

    Awareness (Heijo Shin) and

    "Seiryoku zenyo" (best use of Energy, minimum effort - maximum efficiency) in a best way.

    Principles of Defence and Counters

    - posture

    - (breaking grips)

    - blocking

    - evading

    - redirecting

    As attacking throwing attempts I take the most common throws in randori/competition (also to close the gap between Kata and Shai and Morote gari for Randori)

    and I am starting in each set with "blocking", followed by "evading" and then "redirecting", because that is also a progress from "easy" to "medium" to "difficult".
