Re: Newbie stuff...

re (1): I was taught that it is rude to line up with an unkempt dogi, and what i've most commonly seen is people turn with back to shomen to quickly make the adjustments (which is also a visual signal to the instructor that they are doing this and not ignoring the clap) and once done, sit down as quickly as possible in the line.
