In the arcticle above is note about Dojo etiquette in Kodokan. The Kodokan website give us more informations and there are english, french, spanish leaflets with good and bad examples of manners.
The most important manner for a Judo player is not to give up or quit training Judo. Self-discipline, including dining and other spheres of daily life, also is required.
To be very courteous, to keep the Dojo clean and comfortable, to keep Judo-gi and one's body neat and clean, and paring one's nails should be done naturally if one cares for and respects opponents.
