Kata-Guruma See How to Do this Judo Throw


Kata-guruma is now banned in competitive judo (as you can’t take hold of the trouser leg). It is still one of the 40 judo throws in the Gokyo and so we are including it in these tutorials.

How to throw with Kata-guruma

  1. Let go of your grip on the lapel. Bending your knees grab uke’s leg.
  2. Lift uke onto your back in a «fireman lift» making sure you use your legs to lift.
  3. Keeping control, tip uke off your back, pull through with the sleeve and lower towards the mat.
  4. Ippon!
