I start judo tomorrow. Im a bit worried though as ive never done a 'traditional' martial art before!
Could someone give me a few tips regards Judo ettiquette? Bowing and all the other stuff.
Thanks guys and this is not a troll attempt haha! I dont want to walk in the dojo tomorrow and get put through the mat for being rude!
Don't quote me on this but I'm sure I've been told it's considered good etiquette in some gyms to ask the sensei beforehand if you only have a BJJ gi and plan to wear it.
Plain white gi (Blue can be considered cocky by some old schoolers but its rare to find that).
You will bow at the start of the class and is custom before any randori to bow before your partner(in both tachiwaza and newaza).
There will be a line up before and after class according to rank.
Thats pretty much it, anything else will be explained.
