DOJANG ETIQUETTE (AN OVERVIEW FOR NEW STUDENTS AND A REFRESHER FOR THE REST OF US!)
Being new to the martial arts community can sometimes feel confusing or intimidating at first- with traditions, routines, and commands that everyone else seems to already know. Master Han and the Instructors at SKY Martial Arts Murrieta want to make sure you feel as comfortable and prepared as possible for your first day of class. They have worked together to create this guide to help students and their families know what to expect, as well as what’s expected of them as a member of the SKY Martial Arts Murrieta Family.
Upon entering the "dojang" (Studio) students bow first to the flags and then to instructors. If the class has already begun before you enter, you will, after bowing to the flags, wait for the instructor's permission to join the class.
Things included in Teens/Adults Program
Sparring and Self-Defense: Sparring is an important part of most martial arts programs, as it allows students to practice their techniques in a controlled and safe environment. This portion of the program may also include training in self-defense techniques, such as how to escape holds or defend against an attacker.
History of Martial Arts
Brazilian jiu-jitsu, a martial art that originated in Brazil, was introduced to the United States in the 1990s. The art was brought to the United States by the Gracie family, who founded the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Torrance, California. Brazilian jiu-jitsu has become popular in the United States in recent years, thanks in part to its success in mixed martial arts competitions.
