This comprehensive manual on the basic formal techniques of Kodokan judo, the Randori no Kata, provides the fundamental instruction in throwing and grappling that is essential to effective judo. With over 1.000 illustrations, it gives complete step-step descriptions of the roles of both training partners. In addition to throwing and grappling, the important transitional movements, as well as grips, stances, and postures, are also explained. The authors have, by studying the writings of Jigoro Kano been able to recapture the original spirit and intent of the judo kata, which they present in their most up-to-date, standard Kodokan versions, as refined by generations of master judoists.
