Etiquette is about how you should behave. Always follow the below guidelines to demonstrate good etiquette.
Immediately before and after class, you should:
Arrive in good time and get ready quietly.
Remove all jewellery.
Put your shoes and drinks tidily into the cubby holes.
Place your rubbish in the bins.
Keep the reception area clean and tidy.
Ask permission to join class if you are late.
During class you should:
Bow to the flags when you enter and leave the practice area.
Look smart and tidy; be proud of and respect your uniform and belt.
Turn and kneel to tidy your uniform and belt.
Say “Yes Sir” or “Yes Ma’am” to respect others.
Concentrate and listen in attention position or sit correctly.
Make friends with new members.
Train positively and never give up.
Only practice what you have been taught by the instructor.
Never ask to be taught; you will learn new material when you are ready.
Never teach others unless asked to by your instructors.
Say “Kam Sa Ham Ni Da” (Thank You) to your instructors.
At school and home you should:
Practice sensibly at home but never at school.
Demonstrate what you have learnt to your parents, but don’t teach them.
Bring your friends to class so you can practice with them.
Please feel free to watch classes, but do so quietly so as to not disrupt learning.
Please keep siblings quiet.
In regards to training:
Set your child the goal to improve, not to achieve the next belt.
Be completely honest with your child regarding their ability and keep it positive.
Be careful not to compare your child with other children.
Be helpful but please don’t coach your child.
Teach your children to enjoy the thrill of competition – not winning or losing.
