List of Key Martial Arts Commands & Terminology
Each martial arts style has its own unique terminology. Therefore, we are providing you with the key words, numbers and commands used by different martial arts styles. However, be aware that many martial arts schools use foreign language words and commands to describe their techniques, counting system (i.e. numbers 1-20), kicks, stances, etc. For example, you may be attending a Taekwondo school in America but you may need to count in Korean.
If you would like to learn how to pronounce common foreign language words and phrases, please visit the Martial Arts Languages section.
