DIRECTIONS FOR DOJO ACTIVITY

  • The martial art begins and ends with respect.
  • Bow upon entering and leaving the dojo (Training Hall or Gym) indicating respect.
  • Diligently follow the instruction given by your instructor and your seniors.
  • Thoughtless and careless actions such as whistling, singing, and social conversation have no place in the dojo.
  • Refrain from engaging another student in idle conversation. Make the best use of time given for your class.

  • Person to person relationship in the dojo must be reinforced by courtesy and affection.
  • Keep your body and your Gi (uniform) always clean.
  • You are responsible for keeping your conduct under control inside and outside of the dojo.
