KAZU ( 数 )

KIHON WAZA ( 基本技 ) -

There are two numerical systems in the Japanese language, Kango ( 漢語 ), derived from Chinese, Ichi-system and Wago ( 和語 ), originally Japanese, Hitotsu-system. The Ichi-system is used with counters such as -ji which indicates the time. The Hitotsu-system is used independently without counters. The Hitotsu-system goes up to 10 and cannot be used for counting people, time or money. From eleven the numbers are based on Kango (Ichi-system). Note the replacement of Shi by Yon and Shichi by Nana.

Kyokushinkai Karate has over the last 50+ years numbered more than 15 million practitioners worldwide, in more than 160 countries. One family that uses an universal language, the Dojo-language, in Japanese.

Most used numbers in practice are:
Yon-ju go : 45
Kyu-ju: 90
Byaku hachi-ju: 180
Ni-bayku nana-ju: 270
San-byaku roku-ju: 360
