Nage no kata - Form of throwing


The "Nage no kata" (form of throwing) was the first Kata developed by Jigoro Kano in 1887 and belongs to the Kodokan Randori Kata.

It consists of five series with three throws witch are in a fixed order, they take effect first on the right, then on the left. This is not a guide to learning the "nage no kata",it is only a help for the practitioner, to correctly learn the kata, it is essential to follow the instructions of a trainer (master).

The version shown here of "Nage no kata", complies with the requirements of the examination commission for the IBF Germany. For the exam at 1st Kyu (brown belt) must be shown the first three series of "Nage no kata" dominated in its fundamentals. In exam for the 1st Dan the complete kata must be shown in perfect execution.
