2. Bow towards kamiza in standing postion after the first entering bow and before last exiting bow when leaving and entering the mat.
3. Remove shoes and place then neatly along the mat.
4. If entering the mat with weapons raise them parallel to the floor when bowing.
5. Please keep your fingernails short as not to hurt anyone and remove all jewelry.
6. White Gi should be kept clean and presentable -- Hakama for yudansha only please.
7. Belt should be properly tied with knot pointing to the right.
8. If you come and practice has started, please wait at the edge of the mat in seiza (sitting on knees) for sensei to aknowlege you and say "hai dozo" (please come).
9. Please pay your dues promptly.
10. Line up at the start of class by seniority.
11. Never walk between two people bowing or practicing, it's rude and dangerous!
12. If sitting in seiza becomes too much for sit cross-legged (agura). Its much more polite to sit cross-legged than to be squirming around all class.
13. Never lean against the wall or cross your arms, it's rude and says you're bored, don't care and have nothing to learn.
14. Don't walk between sensei and the Kamiza, or sit with your back to the Kamiza.
15. If you have an injury be sure to let sensei and your partners know. Rolling up a sleeve or pant leg indicates where you are injured. Example -- if you're left elbow is bothering you, roll up your left sleeve an inch or two.
16. It is polite to ask Sensei before leaving the mat for water.
17. When sensei is demonstrating a technique it is polite so sit and watch even if he's just showing you and your partner. After the correction, bow to the instructor, then to your partner, and resume practice.
18. If you need to straighten up your Gi, bow to your partner and turn away from the kamiza to fix it.
19. None of us are perfect, we're all just here to learn - please let that be reflected in your attitude. We're not here to compete and we're all expected to be teachers as well as students.
