Judo practice consists both of shiai - the free sparring that you see in the Olympics and other tournaments - and kata, or forms. There are seven official Kodokan kata:
The first five are considered competition kata.
Kata can be done by players of all levels and ages, and there is no need to have a kata partner to join the class. Furthermore, when players advance in their belt grade, kata will be required to pass the belt tests.

Wednesday 6:00 p.m.- 8:00 p.m.
Kata is included in a student's monthly fee. There is no separate fee to join the kata class.
