Go-no-sen-no-kata (form of counters) is a kata developed at Waseda university (consequently, it is not an official Kodokan kata) and is largely associated with Kawaishi. There is no standardised method of performing the kata, and performances differ across countries and clubs. In some versions, Uke first throws Tori after which Uke attempts to throw again, but Tori counters. In other versions, Tori counters immediately. In some versions, the first attack and counter is in slow motion, demonstrating the precise method of countering, then with the second attack and counter in normal speed; in other versions there is only one normal-speed attack and counter.
