PTT instructors shall reinforce the family spirit among students, parents, and other instructors. Their attitude must always be positive and cooperative in order to channel their creative energy towards the strengthening and the growth our family, always putting the team in front of individual needs.
PTT instructors shall nurture and reinforce a cooperative environment inside and outside the dojo. They must ensure that the competitive realm, as well as competitive attitudes, are restricted to tournaments. They must help students understand that progress is not manifested in their ability to overcome a partner or opponent, but rather in their capacity to engage in a cooperative training experience where the winner is whoever learns more.
PTT instructors shall constantly discipline the students, but never punish them. They must show students that without discipline there is no mastery, both in Jiu-Jitsu and in life, and that excellence is only made possible through willingness to sacrifice.
PTT instructors shall reinforce that students must act with warmth and respect toward one another, regardless of their differences in race, creed, gender, nationality, etc. The belt rank hierarchy must be respected and the authority of the black belt sincerely recognized.
Continuous Improvement and Growth
PTT instructors shall reinforce that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a life-long journey with no end point. Students must perceive the Black Belt as their minimum goal, with progress represented by an growing commitment to their evolution as BJJ practitioners and human beings.
PTT instructors shall lead by example, kindness, and care. Their formal authority shall always be supported by their moral authority, which is built upon a positive, cooperative, and constructive attitude towards the students and other instructors.
PTT instructors shall understand their importance as role models in their students lives, as well as their responsibility in bringing out the best in each person.
PTT instructors shall teach a class as a privilege, never as a burden. Each class is the realization of a dream, the instructors’ life work. They must enjoy every minute of training and teach as if it were their last opportunity to change students’ lives for the better.
The Interior Health Authority has rescinded their gym closure order effective on 19 May 2020. This is partially good news for us!
A thorough read of the requirements for opening, and consultation with health professionals and our lawyer, indicates that there is no way that we can safely restart Jiu-Jitsu classes. With the 2m requirement it is simply impossible to do so without putting our students at risk. So, until such times as the IHA indicates otherwise, Jiu-Jitsu is still on hold.
What we do plan to do is to restart our kickboxing/boxing classes following the IHA protocols and our personal training classes. We are developing curriculum that will allow for safe training while following IHA protocols. You will notice social distancing and hygeine/sanitization protocols when you enter the club, during and after class…you MUST follow them.
We will update you further via email. So…if you have not yet completed the communication form at the link below…then you won’t receive information on this opportunity to get back on the mats! Git’r done and fill it out! https://forms.gle/bNe2vrLwkKxL2eHY6
Thanks to all for their patience during this time. See you on the mats…soon!
