Keep bodily functions to yourself
Do not change your clothes in the common areas; please use the bathroom
Always compliment your training partners; shake/touch hands before and after training
Use technique; only apply force as necessary for executing proper technique
Learn the principles of leverage
Never seek to harm fellow students; training drills and rolling are part of the Jiu-Jitsu class and not a fight between two strangers
Absolutely NO coaching your children or other students during class.
During class, when the instructor is demonstrating the techniques, every student must sit or stand in good posture
All jewelry, piercings, necklaces, and other items should be removed during training
Respect Jiu-Jitsu, the instructors, amd each other at all times
Leave your ego and “baggage” at the door; always be open to learning
Something new and help your training partner
Ask the instructor’s permission to train if you are late
Ask the instructor’s permission bedore leaving the mats during class
Refrain from talking while the instructor is talking
Follow the instruction of the technique presented and work on them, without telling your training partner that you learned something different on YouTube. Jiu Jitsu is endless and we need to focus on one technique at the time, plus it is disrespectful not to follow what the instructor is teaching for the specific class
No kids on the mat during adult’s class
No pets on the mat
Keep cell phones quiet
Be courteous, use common sense, and have respect at all times for Jiu-Jitsu, our Dojo, your training partners, visitors, and spectators
Maintain composure at all times; do not loss your calmness or temper when things go wrong for whatever reason.
Adapt to situations in the Dojo as you would adapt in life; be patient and let the dust settle before you make a situation worse by acting impulsively
Think before you act; nothing justify aggressive behavior
Sparring can be intimidating in the beginning; be calm, use techinique and learn how to defend first before atrempting attacks
If you are not sure about a certain technique, don’t apply it because you could injure yourself or your training partner; ask the instructor to explain what can and cannot be used
Never abuse or overpower a beginner during sparring; always guide them and explain their mistakes and also point out their progress during sparring sessions
Enjoy Class:
Have fun and enjoy the learning process so you ally feel the benefits of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
