Taiko Society teaches all of our arrangements using kuchishoga. If you are to follow this blog or join our classes please memorize the following terminology:   DON (aka DO, RO, KO, DORO, DOKO) -  This is a loud hit in the middle of the head. When learning the kuchishoga please place a significant emphases to signify the loud stroke. TSU (aka KU, TSUKU) - A quiet and soft hit to the center of the head. From our set position just relaxing the wrists slightly is enough to produce this, there is not a need to raise the bachi in order to achieve the hit. KA - (aka, RA, KARA) - A soft hit on the edge of the taiko using only the top 1"  of your bachi. SU - A silent note ZU - A strong press of the bachi to the center of the head.
