    This Kata is about to teach, learn and practice the basics and fundamentals of Judo to beginners.

    As always you don't have to teach all parts of a Kata - you just can teach and practice sets of techniques but the Kata as a whole can help overview or repeat the fundamentals and basics of Judo. Therefore also intermediate and advanced students can benefit from practicing this Kata.
    The fundamentals and basics are the roots, from where your Judo grows, gets nourished and flourishs.


    Set One - Solo (parallel and synchron for higher grades, not mandatory for beginners)

    Bowing (Rei, showing respect):

    - standing Bow
