Reminder – Nage-no-kata Clinic – This Sunday

August 2, 2013

Whether you are approaching testing for Shodan or simply interested in improving your understanding of the principles of judo, please consider attending this Sunday’s clinic with Noboru Saito-sensei, Hachidan as clinician. To paraphrase, Jigoro Kano-sensei, kata and randori are like two wheels on a cart – each one needs the other.

The clinic will cover the first three sets of throws of the nage-no-kata: te-waza (hand throws), koshi-waza (hip throws) and ashi-waza (leg throws).
