Code of Conduct



  1. Always be respectful.

  2. Always address Instructors and Seniors by correct title. (Ex: Guro, Kru, Coach, Professor, Kuya, Até, etc.)

  3. One Teacher at a Time. Absolutely NO outside coaching during class.

  4. If you are late, wait off the mat until the Instructor gives you permission to join.

  5. Do not leave the mat area without permission from your Instructor while class is in session. It is common courtesy to communicate with your instructor.

  6. During class, when the Instructor is demonstrating the techniques, every student must sit or stand with good posture.

  7. Absolutely no foul language inside the academy.

  8. Keep feet clean. No dirty feet on the mat.

  9. No shoes, food or drink on the mat.

  10. You must wear shoes or flip flops when you are off the mat.

  11. If you are wearing flip flops, you must clean your feet before you step onto the mat.

  12. You must always wear a shirt or rash guard inside the academy.

  13. All training gear and bags should be left in the locker room or against the walls away from the walkways.

  14. Uniforms must be clean at all times. A dirty uniform is considered disrespectful.

  15. All jewelry, piercings, necklaces and other items should be removed prior to training.

  16. Keep fingernails and toenails neatly trimmed.

  19. Be humble.

  20. Receive criticism fondly and learn from it.

  21. Your ego is enemy number one if success is what you crave. Go to training and leave your ego outside. Training isn't competing. The vanity and fear of losing only delay the performance of the student.

  22. Be respectful towards your training partners.

  23. Don't think about belt color, but really desire the black belt.

  24. Help out and get helped

  25. Practice patience. Haste is the enemy of perfection. One technique mastered is worth more than a thousand poorly done.

  26. Perseverance. When you endeavor to do something, do it and do it well.

  27. Discipline breeds order and order breeds progress.

  28. Learn from your performance and from others.

  29. Have fun!
