What does sono mean?

ANONYMOUS November 18, 2008, 11:35 pm
I was going through a list of martial art techniques and they all started with sono and then the number what does sono mean?

example:
その一 Sono Ichi
その二 Sono Ni
その三 Sono San
etc...


P.S. I have seen Sono translated a "THE" before but it doesn't seem right here can you help?

Thanks.
Brian

konnichiwa Brian san!

その一 Sono Ichi
その二 Sono Ni
その三 Sono San

when used in sports, is perhaps best not to translate literally...(as it wouldn't make sense) You may know that *Sono*, by itself means "That".
However, when in a context of doing exercises, or martial arts, it expresses the following:
"And one" "And two" "And three"

Hope that helped!
