    Go-no-kata - Forms of (Proper Use) of Force

    The Go-no-kata is the complementary kata to the Ju-no-kata (go meaning hardness and ju meaning pliable) and dates back to the earliest days of the Kodokan where it was used as a training drill. It consists of 10 techniques.

    The original Go-no-kata is seldom taught or practised today – even at the Kodokan, however it is not, contrary to popular opinion "lost". Knowledgeable teachers can be found - most notably Toshiyasu Ochiai-sensei who is known to perform and teach the kata in Tokyo.

    The techniques of the Go-no-kata are as follows:

    · Seoi Nage (Shoulder Throw)
    · Ushiro-goshi (Back Hip Throw)
    · Sukuinage (Scooping Throw)
    · Hidari Seoi Nage (Left Shoulder Throw)
    · Uki-goshi (Floating Hip Throw)
    · Hadaka-jime / Koshi-kudaki (Naked Lock / Hip Crush)
    · Tobi-goshi / Uki-goshi (Jumping Hip Throw / Floating Hip Throw)
    · Osoto-otoshi (Large Outer Drop)
    · Ushiro-goshi (Back Hip Throw)
    · Kata-guruma (Shoulder Wheel)

    Note that in recent years other teachers have developed and demonstrated their own Go-no-Kata for a variety of reasons. However, there is no commonality between these kata and the original Kodokan form.

    Please post all questions, videos etc pertaining to the Go-no-Kata in this area.
