Terminology
Dear Students, In order to introduce new way of teaching Karate, I am giving you some Japanese word, which I have translated in English; you have been practicing all of them quite frequently in your DOJO. The reason why I am doing is very simple that some of my students are doing very well and they have reserved bright future in Karate, in case they go for some advanced level training then they have to have proper knowledge of all Japanese manes while practicing. Secondly, I have to make a small request to all parents of students that they must make my student read all general terms, which I have given to them they are not bound to remember or this is not their home work but I want you to get them practice of reading once in 10-15 days. In any case, I am not teaching in English they will be habitual of accepting all words very soon. I want you to encourage them, who knows your son or daughter will be National Champion in Future.
