OPEN SOURCE JIU-JITSU RULES

UPDATED 6/25/17

Good Conduct
Student safety is of utmost concern.  Any student acting in an unsafe manner or being disrespectful to instructors, students, or guest, will be immediately expelled from Open Source Jiu-Jitsu and will forfeit the remainder of their monthly / contractual dues. Welcome all guest and visitors by introducing yourself. Treat newcomers as you would like to be treated.

Cleanliness 
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu being a contact sport requires good personal hygiene in every aspect.
  • Clean gi/clothing must be worn for each class.
  • Bodies, to include hands, feet, and hair should be clean for each class.
  • Do not wear street shoes on the mats
  • If you wear wrestling shoes while training, please do not use them off the mat (i.e. walking into a bathroom, outside, etc…)
  • If you have a skin rash, abrasion(s), cut(s), infection or a contagious illness, you must notify your instructor before training or continuation of training.

Physical/Personal Safety
Submissions
  • If at any time while grappling/training with a partner/opponent and you wish to stop, verbally say “stop” or “tap”, or tap repetitively with your hand/foot/etc., on your opponent or on the mat.
  • YOU SHOULD “TAP” WHEN EVER YOU FEEL ANY DISCOMFORT…DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOU FEEL ACTUAL PAIN TO STOP OR “TAP”.
  • While training with a partner/opponent, you are responsible and required to immediately stop and release any applied technique when your partner/opponent “Taps”.  If your partner/opponent refuses to submit to an applied technique, you should discontinue the technique immediately before injury occurs and report the incident to an instructor.
Illness/Injury
  • If you have a contagious illness please do not train.
  • If you receive an injury (to include outside the gym) immediately report it to an instructor before training or continuing training at the gym.
  • If you are bleeding, discontinue training and notify instructor immediately to allow them to attend to your injury and clean /sanitize the affected mat area.
  • If you notice blood on mats or on another student report it immediately.
  • If you have or suspect you have a skin infection or rash, report it immediately to an instructor and seek medical attention.
  • You will not be allowed to train with a skin infection or rash, until cleared by a medical doctor and/or gym instructors.

Jewelry
For your safety, the safety of others, and to prevent damage to the mats you must not wear jewelry of any kind while training.  This includes but is not limited to the following: Watches, Rings, Necklace/Bracelet, Pierced Jewelry

Nails
