Student Responsibilities

Training responsibly for Safety

  1. The student must follow the instructor's directions, guidelines, and explanations; and, if uncertain, request clarification.
  2. The student must not get ahead of the instruction; regardless of the skill the student may possess.
  3. The student must offer no resistance; and, must allow each maneuver to be freely executed, during training, to allow for the perfection of the movement.
  4. It is essential for the student to be free of any jewelry (rings, watches, etc) that might interfere with the training and/or possibly result in injury.
  5. The student must understand that strikes are to be simulated, especially, during the initial learning stages. It is not important to be quick; nor, to place any power into the strikes.
  6. The student and his partner must establish a signal system to inform one another when to stop applying pressure during training drills.
  7. The student must undergo an adequate amount of warm-up and stretching exercises to reduce the possibility of injury.
  8. The student must always wear the appropriate protective equipment during training.
  9. Every so often, the student must inspect his personal equipment to ensure that it is kept in serviceable condition. If the instructor deems the equipment not adequate, or unsafe, the student will cease physical training until the problem is corrected.
  10. The student MUST PRACTISE!! We aren't interested in babysitting, we strive to TEACH our students and expect them to endevour to be their best!
