1. Remove all jewellery before training. This is a safety requirement.
2. Gi's must be kept clean and in good condition.
3. Remove shoes before walking onto the dojo training floor.
4. Finger and toe nails must be kept clean.
5. Hands and feet must be clean.
6. *The instructor is always referred to as 'Sensei' whilst in the dojo. You should always concentrate on what Sensei is saying, and never disregard a direction from the instructor.*
7. Never intentionally try to hurt anyone in training. The emphasis is always on control.
A bow, rei (pronounced - ray), is a demonstration of respect.
When entering or leaving the dojo , stand at the doorway, heels together hands by your side in musubi dachi (informal stance) and bow, saying "Oss". This shows respect for the dojo, Sensei and everyone training in the dojo. Students must bow in the same manner to their partner at the beginning and at the end of training with that person. This too is a sign of courtesy and respect, it shows good manners. Never perform a half-hearted bow.
If you are late to class you should kneel in seiza (formal sitting position) inside the doorway at the edge of the training area and when Sensei sees you, bow while still in seiza. You will then be invited to join in the class. This applies to any dojo you train at.
The class will start with a formal bow in with all students lined up in order of grade with the highest graded students on the right hand side of the dojo facing the front. ( as facing Sensei highest grade on the left).
When sensei is speaking, correct etiquette is to stand in yoi (ready position) or with your feet together and hands by your side in heisoku-dachi or in musubi dachi.
Always be on your best behaviour in the dojo and have respect for all who are there.
