Re: Advice on Hombu dojo etiquette

Nobody will tell you off.
I have been in a certain shihan's class where he most definitely told off visitors who showed a lack of etiquette. One guy sat in the back and was taking notes and not training. This shihan yelled at one of the uchideshi to "get him the hell out of here."

My advice is to really take a good look at Lisa's post and maybe to ask her directly any other questions you might have. There are not many non-Japanese who know about Honbu better than her
