Epic Nage no Kata Course with World Kata finalists Alex Reid 6th Dan & Paul Laverty 4th Dan! #nagenokata #kata #judo

♬ Remember the Name (feat. Styles of Beyond) - Fort Minor

Interested in improving your technical knowledge and ability, would you like to know more about developing your own judo. Kata has a fundamental place in all judokas development and is an integral part of Kano’s teachings, kata will hone your technical understanding and application of the technique whilst the randori (not contest training) will challenge and test the skill you have learned.

Over the last decade we have been delighted to work with Alex Reid 6th Dan and Paul Laverty 5th Dan, both of whom work as BJA kata examiners, as multiple winners of the British Kata championships they have represented GB many times internationally competing in European and World finals. Alex and Paul will be your course leaders for the Nage no Kata and they will guide you through each set leaving you with a deeper understanding on how to improve your judo.

This course is suitable for judoka over the age of 13 years, it would be advantageous to bring a partner you are comfortable working with to get the most from the course and if possible a white judogi is preferred for kata practice. Opportunities to obtain a kata qualification can be discussed on the course and generally kata examinations are held at National Gradings.

Although this course is suitable for coach revalidation, it is suitable for any judoka open to self improvement and provides information to help successfully complete a judoka’s Dan grade theory. Our National Head Performance Coach Euan Burton MBE recently took part in a kata course with the IJF and commented,

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience of kata during the IJF Academy coaching course. The kata practice really promoted a deep focus on the technical fundamentals of breaking balance, correct positioning, and control of the throw. I also enjoyed the element of teamwork that was required between uke and tori in order to most positively display each demonstration”.
