The dojo is the place for the practice of Karate do. Dojo literally means "training" or "learning" place, Do means way and Jo means place. It is a place for correcting oneself in mind, body and spirit. One should always observe a correct attitude.
In the dojo, there is a very strict, formalised etiquette, covering how to greet people, how to enter and leave the dojo, how to fix your uniform while on the floor, and how to tie your belt. These little formalities should be scrupulously observed by all students, not just by new students.
See the drop down menu for more information regarding the practise of Kyokushin Karate.
