To Jujutsu!


#1

Hey all,

I’m trying to find the correct verb for doing/practicing martial arts. Is it する or something fancier?

どうも!


#2

The standard way to say it is 柔術の稽古をする (Practicing jujutsu)
You can also turn 稽古 into a verb by putting it in front of する, in which case it would be
柔術を稽古する.

Cool, figured is was something suru-y. ^ _ ^
Cheers!

Edit:

Follow up question, what other things commonly use 稽古?

Piano lessons :stuck_out_tongue: “ピアノのけいこ”

And also a lesson in school is 稽古 so 稽古する is study.
