Below Extract from wikipedia – Koshiki no kata
Koshiki no Kata (古式の形 Koshiki-no-kata?, Form of the antique things) is a kata (a set of prearranged techniques) in Judo. It is also known as Kito-ryu no Kata. It consists of 21 techniques originally belonging to the Takenaka-ha  Kito School of jujutsu. Jigoro Kano revised the techniques and incorporated them into a kata in order to preserve the historical source of judo. The set of forms is antique and were intended for “Kumiuchi”, the grappling of armoured warriors in the feudal ages. As such, the kata is to be performed with both partners imagining that they are clad in armour.
