When you enter a Martial Arts place of training it can be helpful to understand the expectations and practices that will allow you the most benefit from the time and effort you spend:

Dress Code:

During Krav Maga, Striking, and Youth/Teen classes, examples of appropriate clothing include: A t-shirt, rash-guard, knee length shorts or sweatpants. For the sake of your safety, and that of your training partner's, please ensure there are no zippers or sharp components on your choice of clothing. Please do not wear short shorts or a tank top.

If you are attending BJJ classes please bring a Gi and rash-guard. A Gi is the traditional garb for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and is an important element of the training in class as techniques often utilize the Gi for chokes and sweeps, etc. A rash-guard can protect you from uncomfortable sweat as you train with your partners and teammates.


Please be on time to class. It is disruptive when students arrive late to training and this affects the performance of both the tardy student as well as the rest of the class.


Due to the close-quarters nature of martial arts and self defence classes, it is important to keep the comfort of your training partners in mind. Before attending class please consider: teeth brushing, nail trimming, hand sanitizer, and deodorant.
