1. No jewellery (e.g. earrings, chains and rings) is to be worn in the Kwoon (Training Hall).
2. Any illness or injuries that may affect your performance or be made worse through training must be reported to the Instructor before commencement of a class.
3. Smoking, chewing gum or eating are prohibited in the Kwoon.
4. Students should bow when entering and leaving the Kwoon and recite the principles.
5. Students should always bow before and after speaking to the Instructor or senior students, and use terms of address for respect such as Sehing (elder brother), Sifu (father teacher), or Seejay
(elder sister). If a command or correction isn't understood, wait for an appropriate moment, and then politely ask the Instructor to clarify or explain. We're not monsters!
6. All Black Belts will be addressed and responded to formally as Sehing.
7. Students should give the ying/yang hand salute sign on meeting the Sifu or Sehing. And smile!
8. Students should observe common standards of hygiene, such as keeping one's shirt clean, keeping one's own body clean so as not to be offensive and keeping nails short and clean.
10. Students that arrive at class early should not waste time. Quickly get changed and warm up with basic movements and stretching. Students that arrive at class late should not simply join in at the back. They should perform ten press ups times their grade then wait to be acknowledged by the Instructor who will instruct them when and where to join the class.
11. Students should move quickly to line up and should stand at attention in order to await the Instructor's commands.
12. Profanity, obscene gestures or actions, unnecessary roughness toward a fellow student, loss of temper, or other actions unbecoming a martial artist are strictly prohibited.
13. If accidental contact is made during training, students should stop and bow to one another and make the ying yang hand salute as an apology, and for the other to show acceptance.
14. Students must not talk whist the Instructor is speaking. Loud conversation, laughing in excess and other horseplay has no place in the school but in moderation is allowed.
15. Leaning on walls or rails, sprawling on the floor, and other slouchy behaviour will be noticed and appropriately acknowledged. Press ups are a great educator :-)
16. Students should ensure that all school equipment is out and ready for use at the beginning of each class. School equipment must not be misused and should be put away neatly at the end of each class by all students.
17. Never be disrespectful towards the Instructor. Though a student is allowed to disagree with the Instructor the student must first follow the Instructor and then discuss the matter later. NEVER EVER attack the instructor either in horseplay or to see what happens. You've been warned.
18. Always remember that what you are learning is a potentially deadly martial art. Wing Chun students are never to initiate violence unless within the confines of British law and must conduct themselves in a responsible and courteous manner both inside and outside the Kwoon.
