    Ok, you wouldn't want to train with me based on one forum post. That pretty much tells me all I need to know, but...

    I am totally respectful, ask anyone who actually knows me.

    I'm not into bowing because it's not something I've ever done. I would bow if I was in a country where it was the normal thing rather than shaking hands etc. I would bow in a dojo if the instructor wanted people to. I don't think there is a need to force bowing though and I think that anything which is done because of a rule loses any sense of being respectful.

    Foul language - it's just words. What people mean is more important than the words they use. I have told people not to swear before because kids were present. If it's just adults about, I really don't mind what people say.

    Unwritten rules where I train are;

    - be respectful to everyone
    - train hard
    - maintain a good standard of cleanliness

    Other stuff is obvious like removing jewelry. I would count speaking to the instructor if starting late/leaving early under being respectful.

    Cool, then I have misunderstood your post and it seems that your point was more about the non-necessity of having rules because people would anyway act in a responsible manneer which is a fair point...

    Yeah, exactly. I don't want people behaving like idiots. I would happily actively tell someone to sort themselves out if necessary but I don't see the need to have specific rules beyond hygiene/safety.

    Also, I have no issue with people who want to run clubs with all those rules. If I trained somewhere as a guest I would obviously follow the rules there.

    Plenty of our judo guys bow when entering/exiting. I am more than happy for them to do it.
