Counting in Japanese
1 - Ichi 2 - Ni 3 - San 4 - Shi 5 - Go
6 - Roku 7 - Shichi 8 - Hachi 9 - Kyu 10 - Jyu

Counting During Kihon

Sensie will lead the class by counting six demonstration techniques to allow students to check their form. If instructed to lead the count students must:

  1. Shout 'Osu! Kia irete!'
  2. Wait for the class to respond - 'Osu!'
  3. Begin the count - 'ichi, ni, …' leaving time inbetween counts for the class to perform their technique.

The numbers of the count represent an attack. As such everyone should respond with their technique between the count - not on the count.
