It is made up of three representative techniques selected from Te-waza , Koshi-waza , Ashi-waza , Ma-sutemi-waza and Yokosutemi-waza to practice for both left and right sides in each technique.

Considerations for Practice

Both Tori and Uke take care to perform the Kata in about the center of the Dojo without a pause in each movement although each description is divided into Movement 1, Movement 2 and Movement 3 for the convenience of explanation. They take care of Judogi no to be disarrayed badly during their performance and adjust it after completing each set of three techniques while returning to their initial positions. Tori and Uke keep in mind to harmonize when they turn around their bodies to face each other without facing their backs of bodies toward Shomen.
