AGAINST THE RULES
RULES OF ETIQUETTE
here are simple rules of etiquette and conduct. Without a doubt, the
most important rule is to respect those of higher rank, and thus, many
of the points listed below are simple everyday ways to show that respect
and self discipline. If you are polite and well-mannered around high
rank, you may become known as a good student worthy of higher
instruction. This should be a goal for all low rank.
2. Always answer, loud and clear, when spoken to, and always follow a response with "sir" or "ma’am".
3. Always bow to black belts when greeting them, when saying good-bye, after they have instructed or assisted you, before and after you spar, etc.
4. Never offer your hand to a black belt or any high rank.
5. If a
high rank offers his/her hand to you, bow and shake their hand properly.
6. When handing and object to, or accepting an object from a high rank, use the same method as shaking a persons hand (while bowing, extend right hand, left hand above right forearm).
7. Low rank should always open the door and hold it open for high rank.
8. If you are dining with high rank, never begin eating until the highest rank has begun.
9. If you are late to class, come in quietly, bow to the instructor and line up to the left of the lowest rank until you are instructed to move.
10. Never interrupt when a black belt is speaking. If you need to say something, wait quietly until they are finished, then politely ask your question, beginning with "sir" or "ma’am".
11. While sparring high rank remember they are there to teach you and are controlling there attacks so do not be overly aggressive or cocky when sparring higher rank. If a high rank attacks and pulls a punch or kick that would’ve clearly hit you, do not take that instantaneous opportunity to attack. High rank deserve to be treated with respect and proper attitude while sparring. Only spar as hard as you want to be sparred.
12. Always wear the proper attire to class. Do not forget your belt as you will be forced to wear a white belt and line up with the white belts. This should be considered an embarrassment.
13. Never enter the classroom without your belt on, and never remove your belt while in the classroom.
14. If you need to fix your belt or straighten your uniform, turn your back to your instructor.
15. If you are walking with a black belt who is carrying something, offer to carry it for them.
16. If a black belt instructs you to do something differently than another black belt has taught you, do it the way you are being told and then, when you have finished, politely ask about the difference.
17. Do not ask or tell your instructor or master when you will be testing. Remember patience and humility. You will be notified when it is your time to test.
18. Make every effort to attend your scheduled test. If your absence is unavoidable, notify your instructor as soon as possible, prior to the test. Your instructor will decide if and when to reschedule your test.
19. Never skip a test because you do not feel prepared. Trust your instructors to decide when you are ready to test. Remember that they have had many years experience preparing students for testing and you should honor and value their opinion.
While these rules are not extensive, they are meant as a guide. There are many other ways to show respect and properly conduct yourself in class. Observe the high rank and model your behavior after them. Remember that one day you may become high rank, and others will model themselves after you.
