In karate-do, culture is a major part of the art. As such, authentic Okinawan terms are used in the instructions given. It is important that students familiarize themselves with these terms as they will assist the students as they progress though the ranks.

While the list is not exhaustive, these are the more common terms that the student will encounter. By no means should the terms on this list be considered as the only ones necessary. Students would be richly rewarded by learning a language other than their native tongue. It would be a truly exciting experience to converse with a fellow martial artist in the language of the masters. Such interaction builds strong foundations which will serve students throughout their life journeys.
