Kata Guruma

What is Kata Guruma?

Kata Guruma (肩車) is one of the traditional forty throws of Judo as developed by Kano Jigoro. It was detailed in Kano’s writings as borrowed from a book on western wrestling. Because the technique is not a sweep nor a trip and requires tori to pull uke into a carry, it is categorized as a hand throwing technique (tewaza). It is commonly known as the “Shoulder Wheel.”
