Rules and Regulations

Please carefully read the Rules and Regulations regarding the Martial Arts program. Remember, you will be participating in a Martial Arts School. Students under the age of 18 years old are asked to carefully consider these Rules and Regulations with their parents/guardians as they will form part of the Student Enrollment Application.

  1. Bow to Master Instructors and all Black Belts when met. Bowing should be in a standing position with hands on the side of the body, while lowering the head and looking down, bend at least 45 degrees. A deeper and longer duration bow should be adhered to when bowing to high ranking Black Belts (4th Degree and up).
  2. Upon entering or leaving the training area (dojang), bow to the flags when displayed or to the Master Instructor or Instructor in charge of the class.
  3. No profanity or loud talking.
  4. Students must maintain a serious attitude at all times.
  5. Never address others while standing with hands on the hips or hands folded in front. This shows a lack of respect for the other person.
  6. Discipline and proper attitude are the main principles in the training of Martial Arts. In violation of such principles, students will be verbally reprimanded, dismissed or suspended for a period of time upon the sole discretion of the Master Instructor/ Technical Director.
  7. During scheduled class times, parents and friends of students are more than welcome to view the training area. However, Parents and friends are asked to sit quietly in the dojang viewing area, as loud talking and laughter is disruptive to the program.
