Randori no Kata (Junanahon no Kata) of Shodokan-style Aikido

Shodokan Aikido technique
This Shodokan Aikido technique exerts pressure on the wrist and elbow to break Uke’s balance. He is then pushed face-down onto the ground, or the practice mat.

The Randori No Kata contains the first Aikido techniques you will be taught when you join a dojo which teaches Shodokan Aikido.

They will first teach you the Basic 17 Aikido Techniques, which are sometimes known as the Junanahon no Kata (or The Kata of 17).

All the Aikido techniques in the Randori no Kata were carefully selected by Professor Kenji Tomiki as being safe for freestyle-practise (Randori).

He started with 12 aikido throws… then 15, and later 17.

This aikido kata is divided into four progressive sections of Aikido techniques.
