  2. All persons participating in training agree to maintain self-control at all times and maintain care in the application of techniques.

  3. Any person who, in training, exhibits behaviour that, in the judgement of the Instructor, is a danger to other participants, shall not be allowed to continue training until the Instructor determines it is safe to do so.

  4. Any injury or incident must be reported to the instructor in charge with all details of incident documented.

TRAINING ETIQUETTE

  1. Persons will bow in the appropriate manner upon entering the dojo.

  2. Shoes must be taken off before entering the matted area.

  3. Persons must be punctual, preferably early, so that they are ready to train when class commences. If arriving late, a person must wait at the side of the Training Area until the Instructor indicates that a person may join the class.

  4. Persons must not chew gum whilst training.

 

UNIFORM

All Persons must wear the appropriate clothing/uniform for the class they’re attending.

 

TRAINING ETHICS

  1. Persons must always be courteous and helpful to each other, training for mutual benefit.

  2. Physical contact between persons who are training must be appropriate to the situation and necessary for the skill development of those persons.

  3. Sexual harassment, defined as being where a person is subjected to unwanted or uninvited sexual behaviour, will not be tolerated.

  4. Any form of discrimination based on sex, gender, ethnic origin, language, colour, or other form of differentiation will not be tolerated.

  5. Our training space is a political and religion neutral environment. We ask our students refrain from political and religious discussion in the training area.

 

PARENTS RESPONSIBILITY

Responsibility as a parent is just as important as the responsibilities of your child. Your child relies upon you, in most cases to get to training, and attend many other important sessions as required by the instructors. We require you as parents to help enforce these responsibilities/obligations set down by sensei as though you were the teacher yourself. This in turn will develop the discipline and responsibilities you as parents want to see developing in your child. We cannot achieve what you want to see, without your support.

 

MEDICAL

If you have a medical condition that the instructor should be aware of, you should notify him/her prior to training.  During the course of training, if you become ill or have an injury, notify your instructor immediately. There is a difference with pushing yourself in training and putting up with a medical problem that may affect yourself and training.

 

PERSONAL HYGINE

  1. Students must maintain a level of cleanliness. Your hygiene also affects others.

  2. Fingers and toenails must be clean and short. 

  3. Long hair must be tied back.

  4. Your uniform must be clean and ironed, and in good order.

  5. Keep your body clean.  Make sure your hands are clean. 

  6. If you start bleeding in any way, shape or form, stop immediately and notify the instructor.  Ensure that any blood is cleaned up properly prior to resuming training.

If found breaking any of the above rules may result in instant expulsion from the club and any or all titles, awards and or privileges being revoked.
