Go-No-Sen no kata can be performed in a choice of 2 formats (Tori is the judoka demonstrating the counter)
Either as a fast flowing, dynamic, randori style moving across the tatami
Or in a teaching format showing perfect control and technique
- Uki shows the attacking technique first – showing good form, control and commitment: and tori’s ability understanding of the technique, acceptance and ukemi.
- When Uki attacks again Tori counters the technique in a slow and controlled way, so that all elements of the counter move can be seen
- Finally the attack and its counter is shown at ‘shiai’ speed
