The Katame No Kata is designed to promote the understanding and learning of the theory of matwork techniques.

 

Katame waza (also Newaza, or matwork techniques) is composed of three separate groups: Osaekomi (pinning) waza, Shime (choking) waza and Kansetsu (armbar submission) waza.

The Katame No Kata consists of 15 techniques, with five representative techniques from each of the three groups.
