A Dojo is more than a simple « Place where you can train ». It is a place where you cultivate body and mind. A place where you learn to fight, having as goal to never have to do it. A place where you share.
With this in Mind, one has to follow a code of conduct.
Ignoring the code of conduct will lead to a disciplinary council.
The rules that one (Students and Visitors) has to respect:
General Behavior Rules
Never forget that you are representing your Academy with your acts. Even on a daily basis and during an exchange with external people.
If you are well-behaved people will know you as the “Jiu Jitsu guy from this Academy”, and so you contribute to the good image of your Academy.
On the other hand, if you have a foul behaviour, people will know you as “The guy from this Jiu Jitsu Academy who behaves badly and foul”. So you will harm the reputation of your Academy, as well as the image of Martial Arts generally.
