Kaizen Academy is a Community of people from varying backgrounds, we don’t care where you were born, what you do for a living, where you live, what your personal preferences are or the like. However, we do have to have some scene of order in the Studio so that classes continue to run smoothly.

Before you consider the Code of Conduct below, you must frame them from the point of view of Our Values:   


1) Learn something new and share something new – EVERYDAY

2) Have an open-mind, be respectful and show compassion

3) Inspire others through your passion!

4) Focus on what you CAN do first!

5) Strive to grow and develop!

6) Draw on inner-strength, learn from and overcome your fears.

7) Remember: Fun, Safe then Martial Arts!

8) Be the best that YOU can be!   That is the kaizen spirit...

Conduct in the Studio (Instructors & Students):

- At all times, students must respect and obey the instructions of Instructors and other higher-ranking belts and show respect for the Studio.

- Instructors are to refrain from using harsh tones and language towards students, where possible they must be an example of good behaviour.

- Conduct yourself in a formal, respectful manner at all times when in the school.

- Do not interfere in any way with classes in progress.

- At no time engage in horseplay on the training areas or in the studio.

- Keep hands and feet off the walls and glass.

- Unnecessary roughness, swearing at people, or display of ill-temper is forbidden.

- Always observe mat etiquette in the training area, including bowing when entering or leaving the Studio and wearing an approved uniform in the training areas.

- No chewing gum or food is allowed on the mat or training areas.

- No one under the influence alcohol or a prohibited substance may train.

- Smoking is prohibited in the Studio.  

Conduct During Class:

- Prompt attendance is expected. If you are unavoidably late, follow the late procedure as directed. Wait at the edge of the mat wait for acknowledgement from the instructor before joining the class.

- Repeated late attendance (without reason) will result in not being allowed into class.

- All students must show proper respect to instructors and fellow students. This includes receiving feedback in a manner that conveys you understand and are willing to accept the feedback from the Instructor. Dismissive language will not be tolerated.

- During sparring and training students are to be careful not to make contact through neglect or carelessness. Contact due to carelessness is a serious offence.

- Speaking to your partner is important during training; however it must not get too loud and must stop when an Instructor is teaching.

- You may ask questions during class by raising your hand and waiting to be recognised.

- Contradicting instructors or complaining during class is strongly discouraged. Instructors are happy to discuss any issues individually away from the class.

- Instructors are to be addressed with their appropriate title. (It is formal etiquette to bow to your instructor before and after speaking with them, however that is the decision of the Instructor as to whether this is adhered to.)

- You may not leave the mat at any point during training without the explicit permission of the instructor.

- You may not chew gum, talk, swear, put your hands on your hips, or lean against the walls at any point during class. [This is old school]  ...

Conduct Outside the Studio:

- Always conduct yourself in a manner befitting your art and your club.

- Refrain from making critical comments about other styles, students or instructors.

- Always be polite and acknowledge fellow members if/when you meet them outside the club. (If you can’t remember their name, ask them – don’t pretend you didn’t see them. 🙂 )  

Information & Communication:

- In no circumstances are you to provide false or misleading information, this includes fake phone numbers, email addresses or other information that would make it difficult for someone to reach you or know who the information is coming from.

- Slander or Libel of Instructors, Members and/or the club is not appreciated and also puts you in a position where you could be sued. Think before you type or speak negatively.

- Kaizen Academy staff, like you, deserve a workplace free from verbal abuse, racism and sexism – any display of poor behaviour will result in immediate expulsion from the club and the cancellation policy taking effect.  

Any questions on the code of conduct, please email [email protected] and we will forward it to the appropriate contact.

We understand that not everyone can keep training with us forever. That’s life. In order to complete your cancellation, you will need to complete this form. CANCELATION FORM

Cancellation Policy Terms

- If you decide to reactivate your membership in the future (and we hope you do) membership rates in effect at the time of reactivation will be applicable as membership rates are subject to change – i.e. your old rate may no longer be available if prices have changed since you joined.

- If you are sure you’d like to cancel, please complete the form above. This will serve as your 14-day written cancellation notice as required by our membership terms and conditions. (If you emailed first, we will start the 14 days notice from that date – however you cancellation will NOT be processed until this form has been completed.)

- Pandemic/Epidemic Impact: It is also noted that this 14-day notice period will not be waived due to a Health Directive as other digital training solutions will be provided.

- No suspensions during Christmas/New Year/January Period – Parents please note, payments are worked out at weekly, fortnightly or monthly payments covering the full 12 months of the year. I.e. Monthly payments are calculated at 48 weeks of classes divided by 12 equal payments. Fortnightly is 48 weeks of classes divided by 26 equal payments.

- If you have a scheduled payment within this 14-day period, the payment will be processed as scheduled (This includes payments during a Membership Pause). All payments are non-refundable.  **To clarify all payments in full will be processed as per that schedule – meaning that no pro-rata payments will be made. You are welcome to adjust your cancellation date to reflect your payment frequency – if you wish – which would extend the cancellation date.

- All Cancellations MUST be put in via the form above to be considered valid requests. Emails, SMS, Comments to staff, or Facebook messages cannot be excepted.

PROMOTIONAL OR UPFRONT PLANS: When purchasing a promotional offer or an upfront plan with discounted rates, this excludes you from suspending your membership due to the discounts covering any missed training.  

PANDEMIC/QUARATINE SUSPENSIONS: Unfortunately the need for 7-14 days quarantine is not covered by our suspension policy. We appreciate the need for quarantine, noting that during that time we continue to run classes and your spot is maintained.  

CANCELLATIONS DURING SUSPENSIONS: (A.k.a. Soft Cancellation) Please note that cancellation during a period of illness/injury suspension does reactivate payments and the standard cancellation policy applies in this instance.

In general, the third-party providers used by us will only collect, use and disclose your information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to us.
