General Etiquette

  • Be humble and show respect to everyone!!!

  • Don’t be afraid to ask questions.

  • Please remove shoes and leave them at designated shoe cubby. Do not wear shoes on the mat.

  • Do not wear any jewelry or metal while training.

  • Please listen quietly when instruction is being given by coaches.

  • Tap early and tap often. Learning is the goal. Injury is the enemy!

  • If your partner taps or you even think they might have tapped, stop applying the submission. There is no reason to risk an injury.

  • Please be aware of what moves/submissions are legal for your skill level. If you are unsure, ask the coach before attempting. We do not want anyone to get injured because of a position they don’t understand.

  • Be open minded and learn from the students who have more experience.

  • After you have been around for a while, be a good role model and help the new folks. You remember how tough it can be when you’re the new guy so be a good mentor and help those with less experience.

  • Please be sure to take all of your belongings when you leave the gym (i.e. gear, mouthpiece, clothes, water bottles, etc.)

  • We only allow the colors white, blue or black for your Jiu-Jitsu uniform.



  • Wash your uniform (and belt) after every training session. Don’t be the stinky guy!

  • Do not go into the bathroom barefoot. Please slip on your shoes first.

  • Use the locker rooms or showers for changing. A shirt/pants are required for any other areas in the gym.

  • If you bleed on the mat or any other place in the gym, please ask for appropriate cleaning products and clean up right away.

  • Keep your fingernails and toenails trimmed short to avoid scratching or cutting anyone.

  • If you are ill, please take a few days off to recover so you do not get anyone else at the gym sick.

  • If you notice any skin conditions, please seek medical attention and do not train until it has cleared up to prevent spreading anything at the gym.

  • Cover any wounds or cuts with proper bandages.
