This is a guide to the Buddy Dojo, a buddy leveling feature in Monster Hunter Rise (MH Rise) for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to know all about the Buddy Dojo, how to train buddies, where to access the Dojo, and how to use Buddy Dojo.

What is the Buddy Dojo

A Buddy Training Feature

Buddy Dojo MH Rise

The Buddy Dojo is a buddy leveler feature for your vacant buddies. Buddies that are occupied (in your party, doing meowcenary work, in the Argosy, etc.) cannot be trained.

Set Rounds to Start Training!

Buddy Dojo Rounds
To start your buddy's dojo sessions, you have to pay Kamura points to buy rounds for your Buddies. One round gets consumed per mission so make sure to set a lot of rounds all at once to avoid the need to return to the Buddy Plaza/Home to train your buddies again.

Consume a Lagniapple to Boost Performance

Boost Buddy Dojo Lagniapple
Lagniapple are items you can consume to boost the performance of the training session. The effects will be greater so if you wish to speed up your training, don't hesitate to give your session a boost! Boosting will increase the amout of EXP your buddies will recieve while training so use it when multiple buddies are training for maximum effect!

How to Access the Buddy Dojo

      Player list provides all of their equipment information. But honestly that doesn't really matter mid hunt. Don't add DPS trackers. It gets really annoying hunting with someone thats just shouting out the damage numbers all hunt
