Please keep your training attire clean, free of foul odors, & in good condition for EVERY class. Training in martial arts involves close personal contact. Make sure that your fingernails & toenails are properly trimmed, and your hair (if long) is pulled back & secured & remove any jewelry during training. If you have any type of skin infection (staph, ringworm, etc.) you will not be allowed to train until it is cleared up. These bacterial & fungal infections are highly contagious and can quickly spread throughout the entire class. If you suspect you may have an infectious skin condition or are not sure, ask the instructor.
