  • Arrive at the dojang at least ten minutes before the scheduled start of your class.
  • Keep your dobahk clean and in good condition. Wash it regularly, but do not use bleach on your dobahk top if it has color trim. Never wash your dee.
  • If there is another class in progress, remain quiet out of respect for the students and instructors.
  • Remove all jewelry, watches, hard hair-control items, or anything else that could injure either yourself or someone else. The only things allowed on the training floor are simple wedding bands.
  • Chewing gum and food are not allowed on the training floor. Water is allowed in closed bottles.
  • Shoes are not allowed on the training floor.
  • Do not attempt to enter the training floor unless you are fully dressed in your dobahk and dee. Make sure that your dobahk ties are tied. If you are wearing a t-shirt, it must be tucked into your dobahk bottom.
