    Founded in London, United Kingdom in 1918 by Gunji Koizumi, The Budokwai is the oldest and most famous Japanese martial ways Society outside of Japan. Published to coincide with the hundred-year anniversary of The Budokwai’s formation, this article presents an in-depth study into Budokwai Kime-no-kata. Not seen for over 25 years, Budokwai Kime-no-kata is an innovative, not officially recognized, formal self-defense exercise against unarmed and armed attacks that, at one time, commonly featured at martial arts displays involving the Society.

    First, this article describes the place of unofficial kata in judo. Afterwards, the scant literature and media featuring Budokwai Kime-no-kata is reviewed. This review includes the provision of biographical details for the key personalities involved in various demonstrations of the exercise.

    A critical evaluation of the background, history and origin of Budokwai Kime-no-kata comes next, including a careful and thorough analysis of who created the exercise. A description of the exercise’s original structure, technical contents and relevance to self-defense then follows, along with summary instructions on how to perform the various attack and defense sequences therein. A comparison of the most recent performance of Budokwai Kime-no-kata with earlier versions comes next, before finally conclusions are drawn.
