    Nage-no-kata - Kenshiro Abbe / Bill Wood

    Interesting vintage display by the legendary Kenshiro Abbe. Note especially kata guruma - where the "wheel" is really evident cf. today's reference standard.

    A demonstration where the jûdôka aren't constantly adjusting there gi in between each moves is reason enough to make it a collectors' item today !

    Very smooth uchi-mata. This is still kata without all the technical copycat mechanistic mannerisms seen today with focus on the result, i.e. the appropriateness of the throw after each tsukuri. Nothing here reminds of robots and the performers are not concerned about how others evaluate what they are doing. Tatami is apparently limited in size leading to some adjustments, which is perfectly proper in the concept of kata.Thanks for sharing this find.

    Are my eyes deceiving me, or is the kuzushi for harai-goshi (around 0:39) different as well?

    Todays kata is very often misunderstood as demonstration or should I say exhibition of keypoints resulting in loosing the natural flow - what means in itself missing the most important keypoint.

    Here is an example of a natural flow of actions, but missing a lot of other Important keypoints (mostly because of Uke).

    Couldn't really see what was going on between the action. Who knows...maybe... they were adjusting like crazy. Doubt it though. Nice old school stuff.

    I see kodokan nage no kata by Abbe/Woods and it looks like the so-called busen nage no kata only done in Holland!
    Can we call this old school?
