    So why does uke have to know anything? Doesn't he just go out there and get thrown around?

    I'd say there is no way you're going to help him here. When I actively studied Judo under a sensei, We started learning the Nage No Kata from basically the beginning and even at brown there is no way I could do it well enough for testing. My sensei impressed upon us the fact that it requires LOTS of practice with someone who is close to your size- not a week's worth...

    Ben, do you have any opinion on uke doing things like placing their hand on tori's hip during kata-guruma? I can understand it being justified as being safer for uke, but it seems like cheating to me.

    No, uke does specific actions for each throw, without them, the kata doesn't work very well or at all. This is true of all Judo kata except the solo one, which really was never intended to be a kata. Of course, Goshin Jutsu was not supposed to be a kata either.

    In fact,ideally, uke is the more experienced of the pair doing the kata.

    When I first learned kata, I did not learn Kata Guruma that way. I still think it's silly, because the whole lift uke pause and throw thing is silly and unrealistic. The only way I can see it as being realistic is that it used to be ippon if you lifted uke and held him up in stuff like Daki Age and Kata Guruma. The kuruma action does not have a pause in it, and does not require a high lift.

    But, I don't have much choice now, the standard has changed. Most nage no kata now looks to me like some sort of choreographed dance.

    When you say specific action do you mean like jumping for throws, or the judy chop for seioi nage etc?

    Uke is the one who leads the action, and has to end up in a position where the throw makes sense. When you're doing the kata, you're not supposed to do any extra actions, make any adjusting steps or anything like that. If uke isn't where he is supposed to be and tori has to compensate in some way then it all goes wrong.

    There doesn't need to be a pause there anymore, although a short one is acceptable. The hand on the back is more to make things easier for tori, same as uke being nice and stiff.

    I hear you. My partner and I have been criticized by some for being too tense - his background is shotokan, mine is kendo - neither of us can help getting our game mode on for kata.
