    Judo has katas? WTF?

    True test of a Judo black belt if they got it for hitting the books or hitting the mat. Ask them how many katas they know if the laugh and say I did one for my black belt then you know they competed. If they give you a long diatribe
    about the benefits and how they are perfecting the finer points then you know they hardly compete.

    Before anyone jumps in to defend kata in Judo. I understand the the uses and benefits. I also understand why its needed. I know 3 katas and suck ass at all three. Katame no kata was called "pedestrian at best" when I tested for my nidan. Personally I want my guys to be well rounded in Judo and know all of it. I am just not going to kill myself correcting kata instead of spending my time doing uchi komi, nage komi and randori.
    Judo is only gentle for the guy on top.

    I absolutely agree with you. I find Nage no kata useful. Had to do it for my shodan and I think I picked up stuff that I otherwise wouldn't bother with (like left uchimata...). I did Katame no kata (uke part) and I find it pretty redundant if one spends reasonable amount of time doing real newaza.

    Koshiki and Itsutsu are really esotheric.
