Counting to 10 in Korean
A basic requirement for your first grading is to count to 10 in Korean. The numbers are in your handbook but as a quick recap (and for Little PUMAs) they are:
Typically a student will be asked to count to 10 in korean in class and during grading for exercises such as:
- Press ups
- Rising Kicks
- Sitting Stance Punch
A student will also be asked to count some moves in their first few gradings i.e. the examiner might say to the student ‘Step forward in walking stance middle punch, 4 times forward, in your own time, counting out loud’. Here the student would perform the 4 moves forward in their own time while counting each of the moves in korean. Normally they would perform the same moves going backwards 4 times, in their own time, counting out loud in korean too.
I hope this is a useful recap on counting 🙂
