Nage no Kata

The Nage-no-kata is a throwing kata - the first of the 2 randori-no-kata's in judo, developed by Jigoro Kano in 1887 in the Kodokan school. 

The kata is composed of 3 techniques from each of the five throw groups in judo: hand techniques (te waza), hip techniqes (goshi waza), foot techniques (ashi waza), rear sacrifice techniques (ma sutemi waza) and side sacrifice techniques (yoko sutemi waza). Each of these 15 techniques is performed twice in the specified order, once with kumi-kata (grip style) to the right and once to the left.

Performance of this kata is required for senior gradings, less sets for lower kyu-grades.
