List of Key Martial Arts Terminology, Commands, etc.

Each martial arts style has its own unique terminology. Moreover, many martial arts schools use foreign language words and commands to describe their techniques, counting systems (i.e. numbers 1-20), kicks, stances, etc. For example, if you are attending a Taekwondo school, you might need to learn how to count in Korean. Therefore, we are providing you with the key words, numbers and commands used by different martial arts styles.

If you would like to learn how to pronounce common foreign language words and phrases, please visit the Martial Arts Languages section.
