ALWAYS BE RESPECTFUL
Bow when entering and exiting the mat.
Greet teammates upon entering the mat. Shake everyone hands upon entering the mat.
Welcome all guests and visitors by introducing yourself. Treat newcomers as you would like to be treated.
Be on time to class. If you happen to arrive late, wait at the entrance to the mat till the instructor says it’s okay for you to join and shake his hands.
Ask the instructor’s permission to leave before exiting the mat.
Use respectful language and behavior, especially around minors. No curse/swear words allowed at the academy.
Always use a clean, dry Gi (white gi only). No mismatch Gi allowed. Do not wear the same Gi for more than two classes in a row.
Before stepping foot on the mat, make sure to have your entire Gi on as well as a properly tightened belt.
Do not remove Gi tops or rash guards until the class has ended.
Must have rash guard for No-Gi class. T-shirts are not permissible

Make sure you take your shoes oﬀ before entering the mat.
Always compliment your sparring partner and bow or shake/touch hands before and after the roll.
Only apply as much force as needed. Never intentionally harm anyone.
Refrain from chatting while the instructor is talking.
When the instructor assigns a task, continue doing that task until the instructor says otherwise. You can never drill a technique too many times!
Keep a respectful posture in the training area.
Talking should be kept to a minimum level and should relate to the class subject.
Absolutely no foul language inside the gym
For No Gi Classes, students must wear a School uniform .
The uniform must be clean at all times. A dirty uniform is a sign of disrespect.
The belt represents your progress. Keep it on.
Be thankful to God for being healthy
