Why Create a Kata? by Shihan Jay Hager

As a young Judo Brown Belt 2nd Kyu in 1967, I was being introduced to the Katas of Kodokan Judo.  I was confused because in the 2 combat Kata [Kime-no-Kata and Kodokan Goshin Jutsu] only 3 throws were utilized in both exercises.  Isn’t Judo a throwing oriented art?  So I approached my 1

Hoteikan Blog, October 2012 - Judo 1962 vs Judo 2012 - My View

Senior Sensei Jay Hager, 7th Dan Judo -Chief Judo Advisor- Hoteikan System of Martial Arts
I have been watching videos-on-line of some major Judo Shiai and ended up shaking my head. Techniques earned points for throws that would not have scored when I started 50 years ago.
Here is what I came away with from the videos:
1962 - Scores were Ippon, Wazari, and Nice Try
2012 - Scores are Ippon, Wazari and Yuko (happily, the Koka is history)
