Dojo Etiquette

Bow when entering the dojo and when stepping on the mat. Bowing represents respect toward the lineage and traditions of this art, and your committment to be present for the practice

Be sure you have clean feet before getting on the mat.

Bow to your partner before beginning to practice and after completing practice.

Ask permission to leave and get on the mat.

If you are late to class ask permission of the sensei before getting on the mat, then do only the stretches and exercises that everyone else is doing.

Practice only those arts that are being taught.

Wear clean and untattered clothes when practicing.

It is customary to bow to the sensei at the beginning and end of class. When the sensei demonstrates an art to you or your partner, bow and thank him or her when they are finished.

Do not sit idle on the mat.
