Re: Dojo Etiquette

Don't let the uniform or its related trappings define who you are. It's just clothing. When in your dojo, do what you're accustomed to. When in somebody else's, do as they suggest. It's always a good idea if you do a lot of visiting to call ahead and ask permission (just a polite formality, really), which gives you the perfect opportunity to inquire as to the prevailing uniform protocols. Usually, you will find that most dojos won't hold any uniform variation against a visitor, as long as it is not in poor taste. If you are actually changing home dojos, you will be expected to adopt the policies of your new dojo.
