- Pronunciation Guide - Colors - Numbers - Ranks & Titles - Dojo Courtesies - Dojo Commands The following set of Japanese words is provided to give the Karate student a working vocabulary in the dojo. The brief definitions given are as they would be used in relation to Karate and not necessarily in general conversation. Many Japanese words do not have an exact English counterpart so more than one definition may be listed. An example of this is the word ãtsukiä which literally means to thrust but is generally given in English as punch.
