General GuideLines


We wear the gi in most of our classes. The belt is typically tied with the black bar facing the left. If you have a uniform from a 3rd party, we ask that you have our patch sown onto the uniform. Please make sure that your uniform is washed between uses.


When stepping onto the mat, it is proper practice to bow and then greet your classmates and instructors. Please give the instructor the floor while they are teaching. Shake hands before grappling with your training partner, and make room for upper belts when grappling. Above all: show respect to your instructors and training partners.


In order to keep a sanitary training environment, we ask that all students come to class without any foul odors. Please enter the mat with clean feet. In regards to the safety of our classmates and training partners, please maintained trimmed finger and toenails.
