GOOD MANNERS AND HABITS
At ISHIDO-SHIKI, place a high value on independence and self-discipline in education.
In some cases, greetings, wording, and courtesy practices are taught more strictly than at home.
If a child drops a rubber on the floor, we might say “Please pick it up yourself”, or we may insist that he pack things with his own hand.

The abacus the habit of persevering is essential. There are no tips to improve easily.
There is the strictness that “you have to keep doing it even if it is difficult”.
That’s why we try to work positively while incorporating fun in the training.
