Hi Guys, My previous 30 odd years of training have been in styles (TKD and Hapkido with a few years of jujitsu thrown in) where none of them have used traditional Korean or Japanese names for the techniques. They have all pretty much been of the mindset that you are there to learn the style, not another language. I've found a new school with an instructor I like that is part of the Koshinryu Jujutsu Australia organisation. The only trouble is, they use the Japanese terms for techniques especially during gradings. From my Hapkido training I know a lot of the techniques (but its also great as I'm learning new stuff I've never done before....so many throws! lol). The biggest challenge is learning the damn names of techniques in Japanese. They aren't really drilled into us in class, but during gradings, the technique is called and I just stand there cause I don't know what the hell a Ude-hishigi-waki-gatame is but tell me you want to see a cross the body armbar-under and its on. Any tips on how to learn or associate the names with the techniques?
