    塾 [じゅく: JUKU] coaching school, cramming school, juku.

    also known as:

    進学塾 [しんがくじゅく: SHINGAKUJUKU] cramschool (for boys and girls who wish to go on to the next stage of education)

    学習塾 [がくしゅうじゅく: GAKUSHUUJUKU] private night-school, tutoring school (math, English, etc.)

    They are special private schools (primarily in Japan) that offer lessons conducted after regular school hours and on the weekends. I live in Japan, and they are really common here. Kids go to regular school, then juku at night and on weekends.

    BTW, the romanization "zyuku" is an older version of romanization (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Romaji for more info)

    Maybe, it's "塾" juku, which means a "cram school."

    Many students go to juku shool in Japan.

    They study there to get into a good university.

    The closest think I can think of is 'strike' or 'punch'.
