Kata

Kata are an integral part of the history of our sport, but it is not just history. They also correspond to the aspiration of many judoka who, more than 130 years after the inception of judo, continue to perpetuate its spirit. Judo conveys strong values that are well illustrated by the practice of kata. KANO Jigoro Shihan taught us the importance of Kata as with Randori in Judo training and to train both Kata and Randori equally in order to master the essence of Judo. Nowadays, Kata has been spread in the world.
