Group classes
If you’re more than 5 minutes late for a group exercise class you may not be able to join in. Please arrive a few minutes early and make sure you warm up beforehand. Please follow all instructions given by our instructors; don’t just do your own thing (unless you have been advised you may do so by the instructor). Your own thing might be dangerous to you or to the students around you. Let the instructor know if there’s an exercise or drill that you can’t do due to injury, pain or discomfort. When you’re finished using equipment such as ropes, Thai pads or yoga blocks, return the equipment to its rightful place. Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Boxing are combat sports, and our kids’ Freestyle Karate classes incorporate multiple martial arts. Martial arts can be dangerous and accidents and injuries can occur. Participation in our martial arts classes is done entirely at your own risk.

Lockers may only be used for items such as gym kits, toiletries and clothes. If we have reasonable grounds for suspecting that a locker is being used for something inappropriate, we reserve the right to open the locker and remove any offending items. We cannot guarantee that the use of a locker will stop theft or damage to your belongings from occurring;you use the lockers entirely at your own risk. Take your belongings home with you after each class. Equipment that is left behind will be kept for 14 days; if it is not claimed within 14 days it will be donated to charity or thrown out.

What to wear
Exercise gear fit for purpose must be worn at all times. Bare chests are not allowed. Closed and appropriate footwear at all times on the gym floor. No work boots on the gym floor. No shoes (other than wrestling boots) on the martial arts mats. Wear the appropriate uniform for your martial arts class and use your own martial arts equipment.

If you do not wear shoes for your class (e.g. yoga or Muay Thai), remember to wear shoes to and from class. If you need to get changed, please use the change rooms.


Code of Conduct for martial arts classes
Be respectful to your instructors, team-mates and other students at all times. When kids are present please ensure you use appropriate language. Warm-up before class, just don’t do it on mats where classes are already in progress. If you are late to class stand at the edge of the mat until your instructor waves you on. If you need to leave the mat during a class, advise the instructor first; please don’t just walk off the mat. Stick to the drills your instructor is showing you. Even though you may know more advanced variations, be respectful of your instructor and newer students and follow instructions. If two groups get too close during sparring or rolling,the lower ranks should stop and move to another space on the mat. Talking should be kept to a minimum and should relate to the class subject. Mobile phones must be switched to silent during class times. If you need to answer your phone urgently, advise your instructor and leave the mat to answer the call. Do not use the skills we teach you outside of the gym (unless in self-defence). If we find out that you are bullying, harassing or intimidating others, either inside or outside of the Club, your membership will be terminated. No food or drinks on the mats. Leave your water bottles at the side of the mat (without obstructing the walkways). Sparring is NOT ALLOWED UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES during non-staffed hours and without an instructor present. Special note for BJJ students: do not slam your opponent. EVER.


Hygiene and health for martial arts students
Do not train if you are sick. You may think you’re ever-so-brave by powering through, but your team mates will not thank you when they wake up sick the following morning. Do not come on the mats if you have a bacterial skin infection. Keep your uniform clean. No dirty feet on the mats; if you need to leave the mat to go to the bathroom, put your shoes on first. Keep your fingernails and toenails short. Remove all jewellery,piercings and necklaces before training. Wear a mouth-guard because teeth are nice to have.
