In Jiu Jitsu there are two regulations. That of your club, and that of the federation. From a club to other rules may change, I bring here the rules I learned in my first club in France. For the rules of the federation I invite you to go directly to their site.

Here is what you can read in my dojo :

  • Curtsy at the entrance and exit of the tatami.
  • Greet his master before any other person.
  • Welcome friends in order of belts.
  • Do not say insults on the tatami.
  • Do not ask another most level student to fight, but wait until he proposes.
  • Do not say you are tired.
  • Switch off the phone.
  • Do not question what the master say.
  • Washing her kimono.
  • Never wash his belt.
  • Do not boast.
  • Always be humble .
  • Do not believe that you are superman because you beat a beter ranking student.
  • Do not invent excuses for not trainning .
  • Remember that everything happening in training, rest from training.
Of course as I said earlier, each club owns is own rules. In France if I came late to my class I had to do 50 pumps for example, but in Germany they are more tolerant ^^. (And I’m not to much late).

For me the most important is:

  • Respect the professor first. Do not interrupt when he explains a technique and do not contradict either. If you have a question you can ask at the end of training.
  • Respect others.
  • Cleanliness must be impeccable! Kimono always clean as yourself.

I think these rules are a good start.
