Neutral Ground Academy Rules & Etiquette

Neutral Ground Academy Neutral Ground Academy Rules & Etiquette
  1. No shoes on the mat. Wear shoes/sandals in the bathroom and when off the mats (only leave the mats barefoot if you’re done for the day, hippie).
  2. Clean up after yourself
    • Put equipment away
    • Return first-aid/tape to it’s place
    • Leave with what you brought or find it in lost and found until we donate it
    • Keep trash in the trash, duh
    • If you spill biohazard, clean it up immediately with sanitizer or bleach spray
  3. Stay in uniform until class is finished. No going shirtless or sports bra while class is in session. Too hot? Get tough.
  4. Get it in the toilet (if you fail, clean it up).
  5. Turn off lights/heat/fans/music/open sign/TIMER when you’re the last to leave.

  1. Watch your skin, as with any contact sport, there’s a risk of skin infection, check it often. Keep wounds clean and covered and watch them carefully for change, if you think you might be sick, get it looked at and stay the f**k off the mats until resolved. If you’re otherwise sick at all, protect the team and stay home!
  2. Clean your gear after EVERY use! Gi, belt, no-gi gear, gloves, shinguards, everything.
  3. Listen to your body, find that sweet spot between being a wuss with bumps and bruises and overtraining on a real injury.
  4. Your words matter: off the cuff, joking, within earshot of others or otherwise. Be mindful to find the balance between joking around and being hurtful. We certainly don’t walk on eggshells, but must be respectful, use discretion.
  5. Respect the Academy, your training partners, actions, words and your thoughts. (this is our blanket rule that covers all other incidence that would make you an asshat).
