Nage-no-kata (Japanese投の形, “forms of throwing”) is one of the two randori-no-kata (乱取りの形, free practice forms) of KodokanJudo. It is intended as an illustration of the various concepts of nage-waza (投げ技, throwing techniques) that exist in judo, and is used both as a training method and as a demonstration of understanding.

All ranks and juniors are welcome. Juniors should plan to attend with another student approximately their same size to ensure availability of a kata training partner. Please note that space is limited and there will not be any areas available for off-mat seating or downtime; everyone will be expected to be on mat and practicing during the morning and afternoon sessions. Attendees will be required to have USJF or USJA membership.

There are 2 mat areas, and the plan is that students will be split between beginner and experienced on the 2 mats.

Instructors: sensei Karen Nagai Rokudan and sensei Blane Bellerud Godan.
