Randori Kata

Gonosen-No-Kata (Kata of Counters)

Gonosen no kata is a kata of fundamental counters and considered to be a randori no kata. Although often practiced by senior dan grades it is an excellent training aid for all. It is not usual to see Gonosen No Kata broken down into sets of techniques and there is often a pause after each group of three techniques to tidy the judo gi. I have left the text as 3 sets of techniques as this may help remember them.
See additional notes at the foot of this page.

Gonosen no kata can be demonstrated a number of ways and these include Tori being thrown and then showing the counter both slowly and then at full speed. Sometimes Tori and Uke changing their position relative to the kamiza. Or some mixture of Tori being thrown slowly and then countering a full speed attack from Uke. At some point the kata must be done at full speed if the practice is to be of benefit when in randori or shiai.
