Nage No Kata

Nage waza (throwing techniques) is composed of Te-waza (hand techniques), Koshi-waza (hip techniques), Ashi-waza (foot techniques), Masutemi-waza (rearward sacrifice techniques) and Yokosutemi-waza (side sacrifice techniques).

In the Nage No Kata, three representative techniques are included from each of the five categories; each technique is performed on both the right and left side.
