Class Punctuality

All students are to arrive 5-10 minutes before class starts.

No-one is permitted onto the floor once the class has begun-No exceptions.

This rule is implemented in order to maintain professionalism within our school. Lateness causes disruptions to the class structure, anxiety for students rushing to be on time, and personal safety. In many cases, it is necessary for Instructors to fix uniforms, organise stripe sheets, check the attendance register etc.
As our school promotes self discipline and respect such behaviour is inconsistent with these principles. In most cases the child suffers so the parent must take responsibility for arriving on time with their child. Please do not plan to arrive right on starting time as you will be asked to sit on the side if the class has already lined up.

All graded students must wear regulation uniforms when training-if you are not suitably attired you are not permitted to train (eg No top / belt etc)

Reminder to all Senior Students


A reminder to all Senior Students (Purple onwards):
  • Instructor Teaching Course is required by all Senior students in order to be eligible for Black Belt Promotion. Applications are currently being taken for the next course. Please see Hanshi for details
  • All Senior Students are required to assist with children's classes at the Belmont Dojo under Hanshi's instruction (Monday, Tuesday or Thursdays)
  • This is as a pre-requisite for promotion ie if you are not assisting you will become ineligible for promotion. 
  • Please see Sensei Rhonda or Tracy to put your name on the roster.
  • A roster is completed each week and all students need to be included on the roster to ensure there are enough Assistant Instructors at each class.
  • Sensei Scott is also looking for Assistants on Mondays, and Saturdays at Torquay, and Thursdays at Herne Hill.
