I came across this phrase but I can't find in the internet what it means. At first I thought 全中制覇 is an idiom but there was no result when I tried searching for it in the net.

  • Where did you come across this? Can you provide some context? – istrasci Apr 13 '17 at 15:56
  • I answered the question, but you really should have provided some context. – l'électeur Apr 13 '17 at 16:06
  • I'm sorry I forgot to add the context, I'll always remember to add it from now on. It's a statement said to a martial arts champion. The statement was "全中制覇のウワサはきいてたがここめで強いとは..." – Karen88 Apr 14 '17 at 1:39
  • The statement was said, in the actual competition area after the martial arts champion had won, by the losing competitor. The competition was for 全国大会. – Karen88 Apr 14 '17 at 1:48

「全中{ぜんちゅう}」 is short for 「[全国]{ぜんこく}[中学校]{ちゅうがっこう}[体育]{たいいく}[大会]{たいかい}」, which is like all-Japan championship meets for junior high school athletes.

Thus, 「全中制覇{ぜんちゅうせいは}」 would mean "winning/becoming a champ at the 全中".

For the advanced learners, the high school version of 「全中」 is commonly called 「インターハイ」.

  • Thank you. I was so fixed in thinking that it was 4文字熟語, I didn't expect that it was an abbreviated word. ^^ – Karen88 Apr 14 '17 at 2:32
