We are fairly easy-going atTopp Performance. We are busy, you are busy, everyone’s lives are busy. But we do have a few gym rules that we try to administer for everyone.
If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to contact us below, or ask a coach.
1. Be on Time
No, we won’t lock you out if you are late… But, we do have a lot to cover in each class to utilize our time with everyone. So do your best to be there a few minutes early if possible. However, if you show up a bit late, please wait at the edge of the mat for an adult instructor to invite you into the matted training area.
2. Check your Ego
You may do well in some workouts, and you may do poor in others. Who cares. The coaches will always be there to help bring you up or down if needed. The martial arts is about self development as individuals and as a team. We encourage all members to help bring others up on and off the mats. We are one.
3. Introduce Yourself
If you don’t recognize someone… introduce yourself. Maybe it’s their first day, and they are nervous. A friendly introduction goes a long way!
Please no swearing, finger nails/toe nails cut, body clean and clean shaven. Respect the body, mind and soul.
5. Children at the shop
We love children at the gym for many reasons… but, we don’t want any children to get hurt. Please be in care and arms length from your child while in the lobby area. We encourage all family members to come watch and support each other. We also need to be respectful of other classes in operation while we are waiting.
6. Clean up after yourself
We don’t encourage people to push themselves so much that their hands rip, and they bleed down their wrists. But it happens. All students are required to stay and help clean the dojo or training area used when class is finsihed. This is a tradition that has carried on for thousands of years and we will always uphold these at TOPP.
7. Proper Uniform
We offer all the proper uniforms, belts and protective gear at the dojo. Any martial art is a discilpine and we thrive on that aspect of our program. All students must wear a gear or uniform required in each class. The GI needs to be clean and properly sized for the student to be able to have the best experience in the class.
