In some commands, the preparatory command and the execution command are combined, such as in "Char-yot" and "Kyong-nae." For these commands, inflection, higher pitch, and greater loudness are added to the last syllable. The first syllable prepares the student and the last syllable commands the execution.
A pet peeve of mine is the running together of two separate commands, such "Char-yot Kyong-nae." These are two separate commands. There should be a short pause between the two commands so students may perform the first command before the second command is issued.
Supplementary commands are oral orders that reinforce and complement the main order. They ensure proper understanding and execution of a movement. A supplementary command may be a preparatory command, a portion of a preparatory command, or a two-part command. It is normally given between the preparatory command and the execution command. For example, when beginning a one-step sparring sequence, give the preparatory command “Ready!” and then state which student will initiate the attack before giving the execution command.
