Abstract

Nage-no-kata together with katame-no-kata make up the randori-no-kata. The reason why is called randori is in their creation forms of learning techniques and principles for exercising randori (free exercise). Although this role is often emphasized, today the nage-no-kata is commonly exercised for examination or as a discipline in the kata competition.

The value of learning nage-no-kata is emphasized from the very foundation of the Kōdōkan Judo and founder Kano Jigoro, and later of the great teachers and judo champions. In order to realize the true value of nage-no-kata it is necessary to scientifically handle the elements that are in direct correlation with the application in randori or shiai. Nage-no-kata uses a number of important structural elements of judo useful for learning judo.

This paper contains an analysis of technical circuits between the reaction of uke and tori action in five selected techniques from each set of nage-no-kata, to establish the critical part of the technique and method of reaction between tori and uke. This analysis will show similarities with identical movements during practicing randori or shiai. The selected techniques are; seoi-nage, uki-goshi, okuri-ashi-barai, ura-nage, and yoko-guruma.
