Before entering the dojo everyone must remove their shoes and arrange them neatly outside of the dojo's entrance. Next, students must place anything they are carrying in their hands on the floor and bow whilst saying 'Osu!' two times. To bow correctly from a standing position:

  Stand in shizentai (standing position).
  Bring the fists to the opposite ears.
  Drop the fists downwards across the body until the fists are parallel to the floor.
  Extend the spine and bow the head 30 to 40 degrees.
  Do not bow so deeply that you cannot see your opponent.
  Return to the original position.

Kyokushin Karate training begins the moment a student enters the dojo. Once inside the dojo students must approach all senior grades in belt order and say Osu!

Students must always focus on keeping their backs straight, fists above belt height and must always answer the sensei or senpai with Osu!

When training with a partner, students must say Osu! Onegaishimasu before beginning their practice and then Osu! Arigato Gozaimashita after finishing.
