call to attention?

In my new dojo, bowing in is always preceded by a sharp "kyatski" (sp?), which is the signal for us to come to attention prior to the bow in. Can anyone tell me the actual spelling of this word, and perhaps a bit of its etymology? I've looked in the usual places, but haven't had any luck - probably due to my uncertainy about the spelling. The word is pronounced kee-yah-tskee.

TIA

JC
