Learn Japanese for Karate, Judo, Aikido, etc.

Basic Japanese phrases and words (such as hello and thank you) are often used in martial arts such as Karate, Aikido and Judo. This page will help you to learn these phrases in order to speak with your instructor and fellow students.

Beyond learning basic terminology (i.e. words for blocks and punches), advanced martial arts students often want to gain greater proficiency in the foreign language of their martial arts style. Therefore, we have included a number of language videos in order to help you to learn and properly pronounce basic Japanese words and common phrases.

For the words, terms and commands used in Karate, Aikido, Judo, etc, please visit the main Terminology section. To learn basic phrases used in other languages, please visit the Martial Arts Languages section.
