How to behave in the Dojo

"The Dojo tags are rules of conduct designed to assist the proper functioning of the Dojo. "Many of these rules are common sense, many are simply good manners. Most are modeled on the Japanese traditions, the home of modern Karate. "In Kyokushin dojos around the world, there is a strict adherence to tradition, yet it is also flexible to change to something more appropriate where required.

Attitudes vary from one nation to another, so changes to the rules also exist. There is no justification for laziness, nor by the indifference of the rules because of this. "The dojo is a sacred place, treat it as such. It is not merely a gym or even any old training center. "Take care and feel proud of his dojo, treat it the same way you treat any place of reverence.

"Karate is easily mistaken as a rough and demanding sport which not only serves another purpose than to teach its participants to hurt others in ways unpleasant.

"Nothing, except that the common rules of courtesy expressed in the rules of the dojo. Often a very advanced student familiar with the dojo and his companions, try to find humor in their indifference to the rules of the dojo.

Always remember that every karateka, regardless of whether a black belt or beginner, trained in the same dojo on the same floor. All practicing the techniques and aspire to the same ideals. Therefore, all are governed by the same label requirements

1. -When entering or leaving the dojo, always look ahead, tilt your head (bow) and say Osu!, Then look toward the other students in class, lean and say Osu! again.

2. -When you arrive late to class, arrodillece behind their backs to the class in seiza. Wait MOKUSO eyes closed. When the instructor (or the person in charge of the class) is authorized to join the class, Stay on in SEIZA tilt your head and say "SHITSUREI SHIMASU" (I apologize for my delay.) Seems to look at the front of the dojo you bow your head and say hello again with a strong Osu!, Integrate quickly at the end of the class. Students arriving late to class should make every effort to be punctual.

3. "Do not remove any part of its DOGI during class without having been authorized.

4. "Do not eat, chew gum, drink or smoke in the dojo.

5. -When prompted to proceed to a position, or when it is formed at the beginning of the class or for another reason during class, always move as quickly as possible - do not walk.

6. "I never practiced kumite unless an instructor is present. When practiced with a black belt kumite, do your best, but show respect for the degree. If you think you can fight harder then do it, but remember that they have their lowest level in mind when they are fighting, therefore they will not be fighting at full capacity.

7. "Do not ask a higher degree of kumite. You should not refuse but if a higher degree invites him to fight.

August. "Do not VIOAL grades for any reason without the permission of the instructor. Never walk on through the ranks, nor between the instructor and students. If you have to move out of position, do it from behind their row on either side of the class and proceed from there.

9. -Directs the Sempai instructor, or SHIHAN SENSEI, depending on their grade. He does not address an instructor by his first name in class.

10. "Do not swear, do not laugh foolishly, do not talk, not act haraganee or inattentive during training. Treat your training seriously, it's not a laughing matter. A karateka should always be alert and have good behavior. Possession of higher degree (especially black belt) is your ticket to relaxation and familiarity in the dojo. Do not waste your time and that of others if you are not prepared to discuss his education and his companions in karate with the respect and seriousness deserved. This includes training avandonar before finishing school. Unless the instructor authorizes the strudiante something else must remain in class until the completion of final bow. Abuse of this rule will not be tolerated.

11. -Arrodillece right knee to adjust to or Reaser the knot in his belt. Turn right, away from the front of the class, or practice your partner to adjust their dogi. Learn to respect his belt as a symbol of their efforts in training.

12. "Your dogi should be kept clean and tidy. Your belt should be air dried but should never be washed, because it contains symbolically the spirit of their hard training.

13. "Listen cuadadosamente addresses instructor. Remember that the instructor will not ask you do something that he or she knows you can not. I acknowledge every instruction with a strong Osu!.

14. "The instructor, whoever he may be, must be treated with the same respect you expect from others as common courtesy. If you can not show respect for a person who takes the time to teach, then you do not belong in a karate dojo. Never questioned his address and never talk in class unless asked by the instructor. Such obedience develops a bond of trust between instructor and student, which enhances mutual responsiveness, simplifying and accelerating the learning process.

15. "For reasons of security and order, do not wear jewelry during practice, or when you put your dogi.

16. "Always keep your toenails and hands clean and short. Always be sure to wash your feet and hands before a workout. In training you often works closely with others. No one appreciates train with someone who is dirty.

17. -Be sure to go to the bathroom before starting training. An accidental blow to a full bladder can be extremely dangerous. Also try to remember that it is good for the body to train with a full stomach, so avoid eating at least one hour before school starts.
