    Great thanks. One question though. By that logic, joushaken o omotome ni naru modifies kata. But then, shouldn't there be a particle that relates them together, like no?

  • Not necessary, as a noun can follow a verb just as it can an adjective. For example, おもしろい人 (an interesting person) and おもしろい話をする人 (a person who tells interesting stories)
