I need a bit of a hand with some terminologies... This form of freestyle karate i do now is Goju based with boxing, aikido, kickboxing rah rah rah, and we use Japanese terminology.

I need to know what the following terms mean:

Uchi (snapping strikes)
Uraken Ganmen
Uraken Hizo
Uraken s-h-i-t-o
Uraken sayu
Uraken shomen
Shuto Gamnen
Shuto Sukutsu
Shuto Naka
Shuto sukutsu uchi komi

Ate (smashing strikes)
Jodan Hiji Ate
Chudan Hiji Ate
Age Hiji Ate
Ushiro Hiji Ate
Oroshi Hiji Ate

Sorry if it takes some time but thanks for any replies.... I know that shuto is knifehand so the other snapping one must best the backfists but i don't know the particulars.

Ta!
Angus

Different styles have different names. Hiji-ate means elbow. Chudan is middle, Age is rising, Jodan is upper, Ushiro is reverse, No idea what oroshi is. Uraken is like uchi, but it is more like a thrust then a snap back. All the other names are either directions or ways to do it. I am sure the others will help you out on this one.

This may be a bit different, but ****TE means under the arm - we use the techniques in several different ways in Kobudo

I dont know if this is the same though

Yoda's my new best friend... thanx man, i thought i was gonna have a hell of a time trying to find those names out... that other backfist is a short one with the bottom fist faving upwards... it's supposed to be the quickest and weakest strike...

Thanks a lot mate!

I find the Japanese terms escape the memory very quickly if not used on a regular basis. Like when I am working on a kata I don't think turn migi zenkutsu dachi ken migi age uke. I think turn in zenkutsu dachi and head block. My aging memory just isn't retaining the terms very well.
