Brecon Dojo Rules



Before starting training it is the student’s responsibility to familiarise themselves and agree to the following:

– Students must be aged 16 years or over (no exceptions.)

– All students must complete a club registration form before starting to train.

– All new and prospective students are to contact and notify the instructor prior to coming along to a class. Please arrive 15 minutes or so before the class starts so that we can run through any questions you have as well as some basic dojo / training information.

– For safety reasons students are expected to and are responsible for keeping their training weapons in a good state of repair, and check them each time prior to use for any damage.

– Students are expected to maintain a good standard of personal hygiene out of consideration for their fellow students (this includes keeping nails short and clean, their training Gi washed & clean etc.)

– Students are requested not to smoke just prior to training, it is unpleasant for the rest of us that do not smoke.

– Students are not to drink alcohol prior to training or train under the influence of any intoxicants. This includes any prescribed medication that may impair a students ability to focus and be fully present whilst training. Please discuss with the instructor if in any doubt.

– No jewellery should be worn during training.

– Regarding accidents occurring during training (both inside and outside the dojo), one should not cause trouble to the Bujinkan. This is an extremely important point. Those unwilling to take personal responsibility for accidents occurring during Bujinkan training shall not be admitted. Reiterating for clarity, the Bujinkan shall not take responsibility for any accidents happening in the course of training, regardless of the location.

– No discrimination of any kind will be tolerated in the dojo. Students are expected to treat each other with respect, as well as work together to develop their skills and foster the spirit of ‘buyu’ (martial friends.)

– Participation within the club and ongoing training is at the instructors discretion.

The tradition of the Bujinkan recognises nature and the universality of all human life, and is aware of that which flows naturally between the two parts:

•”The secret principle of Taijutsu is to know the foundations of peace.

•To study is the path to the immovable heart (fudoshin).”
