8. The Instructor is there to teach you and to answer your questions. Listen to your Instructor as this will help to achieve maximum progress and avoid injury to yourself and other members. Never answer your Instructors back and follow all instructions given, even though they may not always be to your liking. The Instructors word is final and must always be obeyed.

These rules must be adhered to at all times for personal safety and to keep the centre in smooth working order. Disciplinary action will be taken at any violation of the above rules. Intentional disobedience will result in suspension or expulsion from the centre. Discipline is an essential part of Martial Arts, if you do not observe our rules you will not be welcome in the centre and membership in extreme cases may be revoked.
