Code of Conduct

 

We promise to conduct ourselves in a highly professional manner and provide you complete training in every aspect of Aikido, including improvement in your awareness and confidence, the development of your power, harmony and ki, your spirit energy, all whilst teaching you effective self defence techniques against one or many attackers, from the front or from the rear, with or without weapons.

We promise to be open to your individual learning needs and personalise your training. This is one of the ways we ensure your success. Keep in mind that we want you to accomplish your goals, as your achievements add to our success as a school.

Since Aikido is a dangerous activity, safety is our number one concern. Any student not taking care with training partners during practice will be expelled. Disobedience and misbehaviour will not be tolerated. Pay your seniors their due respect.

Personal hygiene is also very important. No one wants to train with dirty, smelly or sweaty partners. Uniforms must be cleaned regularly and ironed before training. Carry a sweat towel while training. Keep long hair tied back and toe and finger nails cut very short. Remove all jewellery.

Arrive to class before the scheduled start time to get changed into uniform and assist with the routine dojo jobs. Students should be kneeling in seiza by the time class begins. The dojo may be available before and after class for free training. Regardless of supervision, always train safely.

When entering or exiting the dojo, bow to the shomen. When moving around the dojo, gain an awareness of the activities occurring around you. Walk around the outside to avoid activity on the inside. When throwing your partner, be aware of others around you and always throw to the outside.

Don’t show other people Aikido techniques in a social setting and avoid being pushed into a challenge. Instead, invite others to come to the dojo to watch a class or participate in a workshop. Seeing other students socially is a natural result of training closely within the group, but always behave appropriately, without taking advantage of younger or more junior students.

 

 

 

“It’s easy to see that Aikido is an effective martial art

and a system for better physical health. I also believe

that through the correct practice of Aikido technique,

it offers an alternative to our modern competitive

approach to life, business and relationships.”
