Dojo Etiquette:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Dojos tend to teach in a more relaxed and less rigid atmosphere than traditional martial arts. Nonetheless, in order to maintain a positive  environment that is both conducive to learning and welcoming to potential students, we require our students, parents of students in the  kids’ classes, and staff to adhere to the following Dojo Etiquette  guidelines.


  • Always show  respect to your instructors, training partners, and fellow human beings.  Respect in training means: do not seek to harm fellow students  physically (e.g., by cranking a submission harder than necessary to make  them tap) or emotionally (i.e., by calling them names or making jokes  about hurting them). Respect also means that you must train seriously  and hard enough for you and your partner to improve his or her skills,  conditioning, and fighting spirit. Not giving your best during training  detracts from both you and your partner’s experience.
  • Maintain  good hygiene (i.e., shower and brush your teeth regularly). As you can  imagine, it is difficult to concentrate on technique when you find your  partner’s smells distracting!
  • Keep finger and toe nails short and clean to prevent injury to yourself and others.
  • Bring a clean, dry gi to each class. Also, always keep a rash guard or T-shirt in your gym bag for no-gi classes.
  • Keep shoes off the mat, so that we can keep the mats clean and sanitary.
  • Do  not walk outside with bare feet. If you have to go outside, wear  sandals or shoes. Items (5) and (6) are especially important to prevent  the spread of skin conditions such as ringworm.
  • Do not shout loudly or use profanity in the dojo. This should go without saying.
  • Do  not talk while the instructor is talking. It distracts those who are  trying to learn and is disrespectful to the teacher, as well as other  students.
  • Stand, sit with your legs crossed, or kneel during  class. No lounging. Studies show that people learn more effectively when  seated in upright postures.
  • Please wear your gi, a T-shirt, or a tank top while in public areas of the Dojo. No bare backs!
  • Do not leave the mat during class without the instructor’s permission.
  • Keep cell phones off during class. Again, they distract those who are trying to learn.
  • If  the instructor has not changed the task, then continue doing the task  he or she has given (i.e., don’t sit around talking because you feel you  have done a technique enough times). You can NEVER do a technique too  many times.
