What do you do when you're late?
When you are late, kneel down in the doorway to the dojo like we
do at the beginning of class, ready to enter (ie. with shoes and
socks off). Wait until Sensei says "on the floor", then
bow and enter the dojo like any other day. If the other karateka
are lining up, just go to your correct place in line. If everyone
is warming up, join in.
If Sensei has already started calling the basics, make sure that
you stretch a little bit before joining in, or you might pull a
muscle! This can also be done before you enter the dojo, if you
know that Sensei has already started class.
