NO SHOES ON THE MAT AT ANY TIME!
Shoes or sandals must be won while not on the mats at all times, no bare feet off the mats
All jewelry must be removed or taped over before training.
A clean White, Blue, or Black Gi with no foul odors and a clean, properly ranked belt are required for gi classes. It is preferred that you wear a rash guard or similarly tight fitting garment under your gi top as fingers can get caught in loose clothing.

Some Jiu-Jitsu Seminars will require a white gi, you will be notified in advance
Patches must be sewn securely to your gi, no loose edges that could cause injury.

Absolutely no rolling without a rash guard or similar garment during.

While all martial arts are contact sports, Jiu-jitsu in particular relies on close physical contact which carries a risk of communicable and possibly serious/fatal diseases (Athlete’s Foot, Impetigo, Ringworm, Staph, MRSA, Tinea Versicolor, influenza etc.) Therefore proper hygiene is REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES.
You and your training gear must be clean and free of any foul odors before stepping on the mats.
NO SHOES ON THE MAT AT ANY TIME, NO BARE FEET OFF THE MAT.
Fingernails and toenails must be clean and trimmed
Cuts, scrapes, or any other wound must be covered and taped securely
Any areas of concern such as rashes, discolored patches, scabbing should be brought to an instructor’s attention and cleared before training.
Although it can be embarrassing to notify your teammates and training partners of a possible infection, it is your responsibility to err on the side of caution for your own safety as well as the safety of everyone around you.
It is always better to take a night off and be safe rather than injure or infect anyone else.
DO NOT train if you know you have any type of infection!
Failure to adhere to the hygiene policy is a serious offense and could result in the termination of your membership. Knowingly and willfully training with a communicable disease/infection could be considered a criminal action!
