It's a Shodokan thing.
The lowest level is similar to Ju-waza with resistance increasing up to the point where it is total and counters are allowed.
The randori is one on one, with or without one person armed with tanto.
It's a great eye opener as to what works for you and what you need to work on. Just wish I was better at it.
Clarification aside - what doesn't ring true about it?
