Randori
(free practice)

     Along with kata (the practice of forms), randori (free practice) is the primary way of practicing and perfecting judo techniques.  In randori two judoka spar with each as they might in an actual match.  They are allowed to execute almost any nage-waza or katame-waza technique they wish so long as they are careful not to injure their training partner.  The use of atemi-waza is randori is prohibited.  Also, a few particularly dangerous nage-waza and kansetsu-waza techniques are not permitted in randori or competition.
 

This page, as are all pages on this site, is constantly under construction.  More information about Judo randori (hopefully some pictures) will be included on this page in the future.
