Re: New school Etiquette
Call or email first, and explain that
- you have moved to the area and would like to train at that dojo.
- you had trained at another dojo under so-and-so sensei for x-years, and if asked, confirm what kyu or dan you have been given.
Show up, suit up, learn, repeat.
THEN after everyone feels safe around you, do as Dieter suggested. They wont see it coming.
