    Are there countries without kata training?

    I've never seen China or Russian states in the results of kata-championships. Is this because they don't do kata in their judo-education? I think this is possible because countries like the Russian states and China are pure sportminded (winning olympic medalls). It's possible when judokata becomes a olympicsport that these countries will start doing kata. It;s just a thought! When judo became a olympic sport the Russian sambo-players were changed into judoka and got a black belt, but how did they get it so fast?

    I understand that this is a difficult question!

    Maybe somebody has a link or knowledge about Russian/Chinese promotion guidelines for blackbelts up to 5th dan?

    Thanks!

    Hope to meet you in 2014 in the Netherlands, when you have a clinic in Lelystad.

    Russia has sent several of its jûdôka to the Kôdôkan International Summer kata course where they have repeatedly won the contest. They seem to have a special relationship with Satô Tadashi.

    I do not know why they have not or rarely participated in EJU or IJF kata championships. Maybe they are first trying to build out a national tradition ?

    I don´t know either, but having seen them, I am sure, that those who competed in the EC are in no way serious or dedicated judoka. Russia doesn´t really care about kata-competitions at the moment.

    Don't want to put words in the OP's mouth ... but the question was about kata training. Competitions was an example.

    What does ... except in a through-the-looking-glass Judo Show IJF world ... what does kata competition necessarily have to to do with kata training?

    I guess, mainstream BJA judo is so devoid of kata that the UK could be considered as a country pretty much without kata training.  There is massive resistance and opposition to kata from the majority of BJA-qualified coaches (the likes of which I have not seen anywhere else in the world e.g. coaches saying they would give up judo if they had to teach kata) - often based on a position of little/no knowledge.   Hardly any BJA club I know of incorporates kata into regular training and kata is seen as something different - and a chore necessary for a grading only. That said there are some high quality kata teachers in the UK as well as some successful kata competitors.
