If you are a white belt up to a red belt, you will need to know the dojo code as it will be said at the end of each lesson. The sempai will choose a student to say it, so make sure you know it – just in case you are chosen! The chosen student should recite the dojo code clearly and with good spirit, pausing after each part so that the rest of the class can repeat it.
- Exert oneself in the perfection of character
- Be faithful and sincere
- Cultivate the spirit of perseverance
- Respect propriety
- Refrain from impetuous and violent behaviour
