My favorite Kata in Judo. Goshin jutsu was developed in 1956 to update the much older defense kata with modern day threats, such as pistols, knives and sticks rather than swords or spears. The kata was furthermore influenced by Kenji Tomiki who was also a practitioner of Aikido.

There are 21 techniques to this kata and they are listed in order.

Defense against Grabs:
Ryote dori - two hand hold
Hidari eri dori - left lapel hold
Migi eri dori - right lapel hold
Kata ude dori - single hand hold
Ushiro eri dori - back collar hold
Ushiro jime - rear choke
Kakae dori - rear seizure

Defense against strikes:
Naname uchi - slanting strike
Ago tsuki - uppercut
Gammen tsuki - thrust punch or jab
Mae geri - front kick
Yoko geri - side kick

Defense against knife:
Tsukkake - close in thrust
Choku zuki - straight thrust
Naname zuki - slanting stab

Defense against stick:
Furiage - upswing against a stick
Furioroshi - downswing against a stick
Morote zuke - two hand thrust

Defense against sidearm
Shomen zuke - pistol held to abdomen
