A month of junokata

Each month this year I am doing a focus on a different kata or exercise from the various martial arts that we practice.  This coming month I will be doing a focus on judo's Junokata, the name of which translates to something like forms of gentleness, or forms of yielding.  I tend to like looser, more coloquial translations, and I usually think about this as forms of winning through pliability, though I also like to tell students that this is "THE kata of judo."
While you're waiting (with baited breath, I know) for the first posts, check out this rendition of junokata...
