    Depends upon the club. In our club its just Kyoteski and rei. I've seen some where they turn and bow to pictures of Kano, I've seen some where they just say rei, I've even seen some where they don't bother with a bow-in.

    Ask your instructor if you're not sure.

    The only difference here is that we do kiotsuke and then sensei rei and joseki rei.

    Thats becaue Judo is a Japanese art. Not American. If your gonna do the art, you do it the way it's supposed to be done.

    Since you're on it, you should also be wearing jeans, boots and a cowboy hat for rolling instead of a gi.

    Our instructor is pretty laid back on that. We still do the three bows, but you could do it in German and he wouldn't care.

    Pay homage to the roots, know where Judo comes from.
    Nothing wrong with that

    On Topic:
    I'm surprised someone could get to brown w/o knowing the way to bow in.

    It's not a big deal. If you play baseball in Germany they call "strikes", "balls", and "outs" instead of translating it into German. If nothing else, makes it easier in international competition if you have the same terminology everywhere. Otherwise you have to learn the terms for every language that provides a referee (what's Spanish for "hajimai", or Chinese?)

    Dayum. Never considered that. Good point georgejjr. By point, I mean complete explanation.

    Kudos.
