Test Requirements question

I am about to take my 5th kyu test (within a week) and I am working on the memorization of technique names. I know all the techniques, but I can't match the names to the techniques

On my requirements sheet, it looks like this:

Shomenuchi:
Ikkyo
Iriminage
Kotegaeshi


etc.

What does it mean to have ikkyo, seemingly in shomenuchi?

Excuse my newbishness, but I don't understand how this works.

Thanks in advance,

Molinjir

Re: Test Requirements question

Paul, you really should be working with a senior student to prepare for the test, including understanding the naming of things.
Shomenuchi is an attack. The others are techniques to be applied.

Re: Test Requirements question

If you do not understand, maybe you are testing too soon.

Re: Test Requirements question

I understand how you think that, but the dojo I am in works mostly as a silent dojo, with only sensei speaking. I can easily memorize it in a week. Thanks though, because now I understand how the whole thing works

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
