  • The class studio or “dojo” is a place where we train, and is important to show respect. To those who practice, a “dojo” (“the place of the way”) is a sacred place. Always bow when entering or leaving the class or any taiko space to show respect for the traditions, cultural foundations and those who have come before us. It affirms the intention to train hard and seriously. Visitors and observers are also expected to follow the taiko etiquette.
  • Food and drink (except water) are not permitted in the taiko class at any time. Please do not wear shoes in the training area, however tabi or socks will be allowed.
