Dojo rules Etiquette

Dojo etiquette


1.  The instructor must ensure that the exercises are performed in a responsible

     and safe manner. You must always follow the instructions and advice from the      instructor.

 2.  More than a series of techniques, the training is also an exercise in receiving       and learning

 3.  Always adjust each technique to your partner’s experience and abilities.

 4.  In aikido you never compete against your partner, only your own inabilities.

 5.  Focus is an important part of the training, so avoid any unnecessary talk while      on the mat. Be respectful of aikido and your fellow aikidokas. Bow to the     

     Shomen when entering and leaving the mat.

6.  As the class begins we bow to the picture of the founder of aikido, Morihei     

     Ueshiba and say “Onegai Shimasu” (let us begin). After the class we say     

    “Domo arigato gozaimashita” as a greeting. Bow to your partner before and     

     after each technique, and be respectful of the instructor especially when he         instructs you personally. Keep in mind that respect and safety are two sides

     of the same coin.

7.  Keep the dojo, yourself and your gi clean.

 8.  Never demonstrate aikido outside the dojo.
