Rules and Etiquette


Judo was founded on the philosophy of providing a controlled and safe environment as well as a positive and friendly atmosphere in order to help each other grow.  Additionally, with its roots in Japanese culture, judoka must respect their senseis, teammates, and facilities.

To that end, please observe the following rules when training:

  • Arrive for class on time
  • Bow when you enter/exit the dojo/mat
  • Leave your ego at the door
  • Keep your fingernails and toenails trimmed
  • Do not crank submissions
  • Do not train if you are sick
  • Wear only clean training gear
