Is there a universal etiquette in the Bujinkan. Now that I will hopefully be able to go training every once in a while it seems kind of important.

(P.S. I didn't know where else to put this.)

Well... I dunno what exactly you want to hear but there is the Dojo etiquette, and there are aslo some rules (written and unwritten) how buyus in the world should treat each-other. And there is this very fine kind of etiquette which you can find in Japan if you go there for training - which I personally found very close to me, as it is very similar to the old Hungarian etiquette (written and unwritten behavioural rules).

As a start, I would recommend you to check Ohashi-san's website. It has loads of important information.
On the left side there are the "Guidelines" and the "Other rules to follow" (they're a must), but if you read through the entries by dates on the right side of the page, you can also get a hint of what are the proper and improper things to do. Very educational page IMHO!

Good luck!

Eva

I will read that as well as clarify now what I meant. At the beginning of training we bowed which I get, but the others said something in Japanese and in unison which I don't know what meant(Or how to repeat it for that matter). There was also some clapping with the bowing. I also don't know how to tie a belt. Never had one, still don't, but I guess I may get one someday so I should probably know how. Stuff like that.

My advice would be to ask a more senior student before class about those things. My experience has been that Bujinkan students are invariably polite and helpful about such matters.
