Please note that:
- The alternate pronunciations of yon for 4 and nana for 7 are not conventionally used (unless referring to grades eg. yondan or nanadan).
- The key point when counting is to produce a loud, sharp, single syllable that can be used to keep time.
- If more than 10 counts are required, the count reverts to 1 after 10. It is up to the students to remember how many sets of 10 have been counted.
