Second session reopened!

Just wanted to quickly let everybody know, if you don’t already, that we are re-opening, at least temporarily, the 7.15 to 8.15pm class on Friday evenings. So long as the attendance is there we will keep it so!

Hope to see you all there!

Etiquette Reminder

Hello all!

2nd week back and I’m sure you’re all exhausted already!

I, as have others, noticed a small slip in some of our Dojo etiquette.

1) No shoes should be worn in the Dojo.

2) Remember to bow to your instructor when addressed, bow when partnering up, and acknowledge commands with an ‘hai’.

3) Unless a Shodan or Nidan is teaching these ranks are officially referred to as Senpai (Sempai) by the lower ranks. Shodan & Nidan, whom are teaching, should be referred to as Sensei. Referring to a higher graded Black-Belt, and/or a Sensei, by name in the Dojo demonstrates disrespect.

Let’s not let this slip.

See you next week!
