Re: Teaching the names of techniques.

IMHO, we can all relate to the frustration of learning a new language and labels.

I often asked my Sempai the names and then repeated them silently in my head as I did the techniques.

There are a lot of good beginner books available that can help you work on it outside the Dojo.
