Under black belt
-
Kohai
1st Dan and 2nd Dan
-
Senpai
3rd Dan and 4th Dan
-
Sensei

-

Osu: The word Osu in its basic translation means 'to endure'. It is a word which expresses a greeting and replaces words such as: 'yes', 'I will do it' and 'excuse me'.

Kiai: The Kiai in its basic form is a shout used to emphasise and develop courage, character, power, endurance and breathing.
