RULES OF PROCEDURE
The rules of the Dojo are manners of behavior designed to help the own functioning of the Dojo. Many of these rules are common sense, many are simple good manners. The majority are modeled on the Japanese traditions, the home of the modern Karate.
In our dojo we try to maintain a strict tradition; however it is also flexible to changes, by something more suited where it required. There is no justification for laziness, nor by the indifference of the rules because of this. Take care and feel proud of his dojo, treat it in the same way that you.
The learning of karate as a martial art, requires not only the acquisition of skills and physical conditions, indispensable for their practice, but the development of other conditions, such as, for example, attention and concentration, indispensable elements in the acquisition of some learning, particularly in younger children. That is why we are grateful silence during the development of the class, both for pupils and general public in order to maintain the proper climate that optimize the learning.
RULES OF THE DOJO "EDUARDO RIVEROS"
Welcome Before entering the Dojo greets the Sensei and advanced students.
In the Dojo, Karate is its sole concern. Talk within classes, the lack of attention to the instructor, yawning, as it is a sign of tedium, it is weakness of dream.
During the greeting at the beginning and at the end of the class, the karate fighters that is out of the tatami, they must be placed standing in musubi dachi, as a sign of respect to the karate.
Remain silent during the implementation of the class within and outside of the tatami.
Head always at your instructor as "Sensei".
If the Sensei corrects his technique, answer clearly "OSS" or "hai”. The sensei or person in charge of the class, he must be treated with the respect that you deserve from others as common courtesy. If you can not show respect toward a person who takes their time to teach you, then you do not belong to a karate dojo. Never put in doubt its address; never talk in class unless it is asked by the instructor. Such obedience develops a bond of trust between the instructor and student, which enhances mutual receptivity, simplifying and accelerating the process of learning.
Do not remove any part of its DOGI (costume), OBI (belt), during the class without first having been authorized. Turn to the right, far from the front of the class, or your practice partner to fit your dogi. Learn to respect his belt as a symbol of their efforts in the training.
Thank always the Sensei or Senpai for your help.
When prompted to proceed to a position, or when is formed at the beginning of the class or for another reason during the class, always move as fast as possible - do not walk.
When practice kumite with a black belt, do better, but show respect for the degree. If you think you can fight harder than do it, but remember that they have their lowest degree in mind and you will treat it as such, when you are fighting, therefore, you will not be fighting with all your capacity.
Is not laugh silly yourself, do not talk, do not haraganee or act desatentamente during the training. Try their training seriously; it is not a question of laughter. A karateka must always be alert and have a good behavior. The possession of a greater degree (especially the black belt) it is not your ticket to relaxation and familiarity in the dojo. Do not waste your time and the time of the other if you are not ready to treat your instruction and his companions of karate with respect and seriousness deserved.
If you arrive late to class, you must wait for the permission of the Sensei or Senpai to join the training, you must say: “permission to enter Sensei”
Is rude leave before the class end. If you have a personal commitment, take measures and alert the Sensei before the class starts.
If you feel sick during the class, ask the permission of the Sensei leaving. Once withdrawn may not be returned unless the special conditions apply (for example a student who suffers an attack of asthma, dizziness or nausea, of which a full recovery can be reached within a few minutes).
If you need to leave the class for any reason of majeure force, you must request the permission of the Sensei. The leave for reasons such as a need for bathroom (unless they are small children) or need to take water, during the implementation of the class, is not allowed it. It is recommended that you do it before entering the tatami.
You must show mutual respect (fellowship).
If the Sensei requested effort or spirit, everyone must respond "OSU", you must demonstrate loudly and clearly the right spirit. Listen carefully to the directions of the instructor. Remember that the instructor will not ask you to do something that he know that you cannot do it.
You should be used the traditional Karategui with its emblem correctly stitching. You always be clean and in good condition. Always keep the nails of your feet and your hands clean and short. You always be sure to wash their hands and feet, some before the training. In the training often you work very closely with others. No one appreciates train with someone who is dirty.
It does not allow any jewelry within the class, (chains, bracelets, ankle socks etc) for the protection of all students. If the student has a wedding ring that does not leave, he must cover it with a protector (adhesive tape etc), for reasons of security and law and order.
There can be no consuming gum, candy, food or drinks during the training (class).
