The Traditional Gokyo of Kodokan Judo
Videos of 40 Throwing Techniques
The Gokyo no Waza (five sets of techniques) is the standard syllabus of Judo throwing techniques originated in 1895 at the Kodokan in Tokyo, Japan. From 1920 to 1982 the Kodokan Gokyo no Waza was made up of the 40 throws in 5 groups as shown below. In 1982 additional techniques (eight reinstated techniques and Shinmeisho No Waza) were added to recognize standard
Judo throws that were not part of the Gokyo. Click on the picture of the throw to see a video demonstration of how to do each technique.
