You must keep youself and your equipement clean to prevent infections! Toe and fingers nails must be kept short. Shower as soon as possible after training, and using some antibacterial shower gel is ideal. Any cuts should be covered during training. If you have any skin rashes, do not train until they have cleared up.
Leave your ego at the door!
Apply submissions with slow and even pressure, releasing as soon as your opponent taps. If he doesn't want to tap, let him go, and transition to something else.
No heel hooks or neck cranks unless the instructor has given permission.
Tap the opponent (not the mat!).
Listen when the coach is talking.
Respect your training partners.
NO shoes on the mat.
Be on time for class.
No jewellery whilst training.
Those whom we are fortunate enough to call our members will be quick to tell you that New Wave Academy is like one big close knit family. We train hard, help each other, have fun and laugh together.
However, for things to run as smoothly as they do it does require that everybody new and old observe some basic rules and etiquette.
