OK I have been working and training all day - so I am going to have a video day.
Nick Lowry Sensei suggested these in connection of Ju and Aiki.
This one is really cool. The two Judoka run through a flowing kata - stop...then do the kata in reverse. Very cool.
This Judo kata is known as "the five forms" Master Kano died before giving the five techniques names. They're supposed to represent the principle of maximum efficiency, but also to be evocative of the movements of the universe. A little trippy. It is performed by Mifune 10th dan, a serious Judo man.
