The practice of Kata Judo, the formal demonstration of throws (Nage-no-kata), demonstration of holds (Katame-no-kata) and demonstration of gentleness

(Ju-no-kata) is an essential part of Judo training. Too much emphasis placed on winning competitions can mean that too little time is spent acquiring the self discipline which is at the heart of Judo. The execution of Kata requires a far greater degree of perfection than Randori, or free practice, and can therefore improve standards, and can also be enjoyed long after a person's competitive days are over. In 1993, Trevor Leggett's classic books on Kata were combined in a single comprehensive volume at the request of the British Judo Association and which for many years was the approved text on Kata. This concise text provides accurate move-by-move explanations. With simplified line drawings showing the essential elements of the moves and photographic sequences which illustrate every stage, this volume is an essential reference work for anyone interested in Judo. The third part of this book covers the practice of Ju-no-kata which was devised by Dr Jigoro Kano, the founder of modern Judo, and the photos in this part of the book are of Dr Kano himself, performing the Ju-no-kata.
