Katame no kata - Form of control

The Katame no kata was designed from 1884 to 1887 by Jigoro Kano as the second traditional kata of the of Kodokan and belongs to the Randori kata.

It consists out of three groups of five ground techniques: Osae komi waza, Jime waza and Kansetzu waza. The 15 techniques are executed on one side only, migi. At the IBF Germany this kata is in a slightly different form for the examination for the 2 Dan required.

This is not a guide to learning the "Katame no kata", but it gives the practitioner only a help. To correctly learn the kata, it is essential to follow the instructions of a trainer (master).
