Greetings: kneeling (zarei), standing (ritsurei), correct posture.

Sequence of movements during greetings:

a) Ritsurei: when bowing while standing, the upper body is bent at an angle of 30 degrees, straight arms slide along the thigh and are fixed with the fingertips one fist above the knee


b) Zarei: from the main stance (heels together toes apart) Uke sits on his left knee, puts his right knee, connecting the feet of his thumbs, puts his palms on his thighs with his fingers inward. After that, resting his palms on the tatami, he slowly bends

torso, to a body position of about 30 degrees.

He gets up from his right foot, making movements in the reverse order.


Racks (Shisei): frontal, right, left.

Basic grips.

There are two types of stances in judo: main and main protective. Each of them, in turn, has two varieties: left-handed and right-handed.

Migi Shizentai Migi Shizentai Right natural
Hidari Shizentai Hidari Shizentai Left natural
Jigo Hongtai Jigo Hontai Main protective
Migi Jigotai Migi Jigotai Right protective
Hydari Jigotai Hidari Jigotai Left protective

To take the position of the main front stance, stand straight, facing an imaginary opponent, feet are shoulder-width apart, body muscles are relaxed, legs are slightly bent at the knees. Abs, knees and big

toes should be in line. Stay in the rack freely, relaxed. Your gaze is at the level of the opponent’s eyes or his chest. You should not look at your feet, as this will cause you to tilt your head a little and bend your body, which will affect your balance.

rack. The head turns to the right, facing the opponent. The body also slightly turn to the right. The left side is a mirror image of the right side.


Disequilibrium (kuzushi). Eight main directions of unbalancing.

Throws in judo are made at the moment when the opponent is in an unstable, most unfavorable position for defense and, as it were, he himself helps to carry out the technique.

However, when dealing with a more experienced partner, one can no longer count on such gifts, and in a fight there will not always be time to wait for the right moment. You must be able to create profitable situations yourself, bringing the enemy into

a position convenient for carrying out a particular throw. Such preparations for throws are a sudden imbalance of the opponent due to a rapid and significant decrease in the area of u200bu200bits support.

In this case, the enemy finds himself in a very unstable position and is deprived of the opportunity not only to attack, but also to defend himself.

There are 8 directions of unbalance in judo.

1. Knocking down on socks. With a sharp movement, pull the partner towards you and up so that his heels come off the floor and he rises on his toes, leaning slightly forward.

2. Knocking down on the right little finger.

The left hand pulls the partner towards itself to the left and down, and the right hand pushes it from itself to the left and up. The partner twists diagonally away from himself so that his left leg comes off the floor, and the only support is the outer part of the right foot adjacent to the little toe.

3. Knocking down on the outer part of the right foot

The left hand pulls the partner to the left and down and slightly towards itself, and the right hand to the left and up so that his weight moves to the outer part of the right foot, and the left leg comes off the floor.

4. Knocking down on the right heel

the left hand pulls the partner down, and the right hand pushes up and slightly to the left. As a result, his left leg is slightly raised and only the outer part of the right heel serves as a support.

5. Knocking down on the heels

With a sharp push away from you and down, force the opponent to transfer the weight of the body to the heels so that the toes of his feet rise from the floor.

6. Knocking down on the left heel

What is kata?

Kata is the perfect way to perform techniques.

These are uniform complexes of judo technical actions that have a strict order and rules for execution. The quality of the demonstration of these complexes determines the level of skill of judokas.

Kata in judo are studied in pairs, while one of the partners (Tori) performs a given sequence of techniques on the other (Uke).

Kata serve the purpose of practical study of the basic principles of judo, the correct execution of techniques, as well as the study of the philosophical principles underlying judo.

Today, there are 8 approved forms of kata, according to the first 5 of which, the world and European championships are held.
1. NAGE-NO-KATA (Kata of Throws)
2. KATAME-NO-KATA (Kata of restraining techniques)
3. KODOKAN-GOSHIN-JUTSU (Kata of self-defense)
4. JU-NO-KATA (Kata of softness)
5. KIME-NO-KATA (Kata of decisive moves)
6. KOSHIKI-NO-KATA (Kata of old tricks)
7. ITSUTSU-NO-KATA (Kata of five forms)

When holding competitions in KATA, each judoist demonstrating one of the forms of KATA together with a partner, the judges give marks for each action, and according to the sum of marks for all actions of the complex, the athletes take the appropriate places.

In addition to those officially approved by the Kodokan, there are also a number of additional kata that are not included in the certification program.
