    Dojo etiquette in Kodokan

    Post by noboru on Tue Jan 27, 2015 2:33 am

    In the arcticle above is note about Dojo etiquette in Kodokan. The Kodokan website give us more informations and there are english, french, spanish leaflets with good and bad examples of manners.

    Source: http://www.kodokan.org/e_basic/nyumon.html

    The most important manner for a Judo player is not to give up or quit training Judo. Self-discipline, including dining and other spheres of daily life, also is required.

    To be very courteous, to keep the Dojo clean and comfortable, to keep Judo-gi and one's body neat and clean, and paring one's nails should be done naturally if one cares for and respects opponents.

    Text from english PDF leaflet:
    OK: symbol O
    Treat instructors and your seniors with respect and courtesy.
    Give your entire efforts.
    When resting, sit in seiza, on the chair or stand, watch other people’s practices, and learn something beneficial.
    Before and after practice, sit in seiza and always perform zarei, and show your respect to each other.
    The higher grade holder is on the right side and the lower is on the left side as one faces photo of Prof. Kano.
    When entering or leaving the dojo area, straighten your judogi, stand properly, and do a standing bow.

    NOT OK: symbol X
    Useless chatter or playing around.
    Sitting with your legs straight out or lying.
    Playing around with your belt.
    Running around.
    Taking your jacket off , hats or caps, hanging your belt around your neck, leaving your jacket open.
