Kime No Kata

Kime No Kata
Jigoro Kano, referred to the three purposes of Judo as physical education, learning
how to attack and defend, and moral training.
The Kime-no-Kata was established in 1888 and consists of twenty techniques for
attack and defense. Eight are Idori techniques for use while seated, and twelve
are Tachiai for use when both people are standing. By studying the kata it is possible
to understand and master the theoretical basis for attack and defense, thereby
allowing one to move quickly and apply the most appropriate techniques to
control the opponent.
The Kime-no-Kata includes AtemiWaza, which are not used in Randori.
Regular practice is essential in order to understand the key locations
and apply the atemi sharply.
