Is Sutemi Waza no Kata different than Tai Sabaki no Kata?
Michael, those are two different kata. Tai Sabaki no Kata shows inside and outside versions of the fundamental tai sabaki: nagashi, hiraki, irimi, irimi senkai and o irimi senkai (which has only an outside version). There are a couple of sutemi waza in tai sabaki no kata, but Sutemi Waza no Kata is ten (10 [I think]) sutemi waza only. I believe that kata is shown in the two-tape video set that was produced in the mid-90s. Not sure. It's a great kata.

Hope that's helpful.
