Re: Test Requirements question

Paul: The best way to remember techniques is with the following: the first term is the attack (shomenuchi-a strike to the front of the head), the second term is the response (ikkyo-number one technique with pin), and if a third term it is the modifier (omote-to the front, ura to the rear, tenkan turning, irimi entering, soto outside, uchi inside). Modifiers describe where you move to or how you move in general.

Attack + Response + Modifier
