There are two principal ways of practicing Judo: Kata and Randori. Kata, which literally means “form”, is practiced following a formal system of prearranged exercises, while Randori, meaning “free practice” is practiced freely. Through Kata practice, trainees learn the principles of techniques.
With this in mind, a once in a lifetime opportunity presented itself in Porec, Croatia, during past days at the annual Judo Festival. The unique occasion delivered a two-day course Kodokan Kata Seminar by two Kodokan Kata Experts, Mr. Mukai Mikihiro and Mr. Murata Naoki. Both of them are eminent coaches from the Kodokan.
