Dojo Etiquette

RESPECT:

All senior karate-ka, the Sensei and the Yudansha (Black Belts) must be shown respect and be called by their respective titles by all junior grades.

POSITIVE ATTITUDE:

Always attend class with a positive attitude. Karate is very repetitive, but one can always learn something new each lesson!

CO-OPERATION:

Aid your progress by always co-operating with your instructor and fellow students by helping them generously and offering advice if you spot errors in technique or manners, while also accepting their advice and assistance in a positive manner - be careful not be a "know all".

LEARNING:

Listen to your instructor while he is pointing out areas for improvement and always ask questions when you are not sure, but not every other minute.

COURTEOUSY:

Always be courteous and friendly towards the instructor and your fellow students.

MANNERISM:

Always sit with crossed legs in the dojo while your instructor is explaining something and you have to sit down. Refrain from loud talking; it can interfere with the running of the class.

PUNCTUALITY:

Always arrive on time for class. If, due to circumstances beyond your control you are late, excuse yourself as you enter the Dojo.

FEES:

Pay your fees promptly to enable the instructor to meet his overheads. Remember when your annual licence expires and renew it promptly.

NEATNESS:

Always train with a clean Gi and see that your body is clean as well. See that your nails and toenails are kept short and clean and always remove all jewellery before class.

MEDITATION:

Classes begin and end with a short meditation in the "seiza" or seated position. The object is to relax and clear the mind to improve reflexes and to review and absorb your training

PHYSICAL CONDITION

Everyone knows his own physical condition. If you feel you cannot cope, slow down or move to the back of the class and rest until you can continue. If you have any injury, please inform the instructor before/after the class.
