PRONUNCIATION GUIDE - approximate (sounds vary with what comes before and after)
a = ah, as in father
e = eh, as in let, but with a little bit of "ay" in it
i = ee
o = oh, as in hope (never ah as in hot, for that sound the "a" is used, see above)
u = halfway between "oo" in moon and the u in cut (similar to the "oo" in book)
ae -= halfway between the "i" in like and "ay"
y = the y in yes
NOTE: The k. p, or t at the end of a word should not be heard, they just stop the vowel sound.
TECHNIQUE: Stance tool height (location) (direction) technique is the order used to name a technique or move whether in English or Korean. The location (front/side/rear) and direction (forward/backward) is
sometimes understood and not necessary to name. In the beginning it is good practice to name the moves as fully
as possible. Later, the names will be shortened as normal use becomes understood, and then the fuller terms will be used for the less used and more unusual variations of the moves.
