• Do not come to class smelling like alcohol, cigarettes, or marijuana.
  • Do not park along the far right side of the building/driveway (private property).
  • Aim to keep your attitude engaged, respectful, and “can-do”.
  • No Rashes on the mats i.e. ringworm, staph, poison oak, etc. 
  • Please refrain from wearing overly revealing apparel to training. I.e. spandex shorts, only spats (men), crop tops, etc.


(Please go over these with your child, or have them read it)


  • Please try to let us know if your child won’t be able to make it to class! 
  • Please make sure your child brings their own water bottle (with their name on it) to class every day. 
  • Your child will need to bring a mouthguard to every class once they get beyond the initial beginning stage. Try to get one that has a tight fit, and make sure to mold it properly to their teeth.
  • If your child is sick, please keep them out of class until they are entirely better.
  • Please make sure to check that your child has clean feet and trimmed finger and toenails before they head to the gym. 
  • Keep an eye out for itchy skin rashes – they can be contagious. If they have a patch, please notify us/show us so we can determine if it is something to worry about. 
  • Remove all jewelry.
  • Long hair tied back securely.
  • Avoid clothes that are overly loose, sparkly, or have zippers/buttons/pockets.


  • Rule #1: No screaming in the dojo.
  • We don’t say, “oh, I don’t want to train with so-and-so” or any other variations on this phrase. 
  • We try to have a good attitude and we try to stay focused the entire class. 
  • We make sure to respect everyone in the training room. 


  • Thank your training partner when they beat you in a roll. 1st, for making you better and helping you gain experience, 2nd, for preventing injuries on your body when they respect the tap and let go, and 3rd by demonstrating a genuine technique in action on you effectively, and you gotta feel it from the receiving end.
  • Don’t make excuses about why they tapped you or try to delegitimize their victory by saying you tapped early and you might have escaped if they tried to hold out longer.
