Oss

(from the Trim Kenpo Karate Academy Facebook page)

Students and instructors will commonly bow to each other upon meeting, or as class is about to begin, and say oss, which is the karate greeting. The second definition of oss, also known as ossu, means Oshi Shinobu, which conveys the idea of “persevering when pushed.” In other words, never give up, have determination, grit, and withstand the most arduous of training.
