Judoka  grading up to 3rd Dan are required to show counters to attacking moves, this can be either  in the style of Go-no-sen-no-kata or Juno-Kata

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
