The Go no sen no kata
is a judo kata
that focuses on counter-attacks to throwing techniques. It is not an officially recognized kata of judo
, but its importance is attested to by its inclusion in Kawaishi's The complete seven katas of judo
. Writing in the early post-war period, Kawaishi described the kata as being practiced less in Japan than in Europe.
