The word dojo literally means ‘Place of the way’ or ‘Training room’.
The dojo is considered to be a very special place and should be treated with respect. To uphold the tradition of karate-do there are rules of conduct and standards of etiquette which we follow.
Strive to learn the correct dojo etiquette and endeavour to apply the principals of karate in your interaction with instructors and fellow karate-ka. The observation of the basic forms of etiquette is essential to the creation of a respectful and attentive atmosphere, which is conducive to learning.
