Re: Practice without tradition

Hey all,

I know I don't post too much here so I hope this is read and taken seriously as I read almost every post that is laid here and ask questions when applicable on my part.

I think some people do not truly understand the truth and meaning behind Dojo etiquette!

The dojo etiquette has a two-fold meaning in my opinion.

1) - The dojo customs we observe before, during and after training are there for a kind o control within the Dojo. When doing any technique in the dojo it must be done with control as not to kill, maim or injure your uke, right!

2) - Dojo etiquette can also be used outside of the Dojo as well. As when we are polite towards other members of the public, friends and or relatives we make few enemies, right!

This is my 2 cents,

Tiyler durden
