Code of Conduct

The Five "Must Not" Rules

  • MUST NOT disobey the Master or damage school reputation.
  • MUST NOT bully or abuse power.
  • MUST NOT behave obsessively.
  • MUST NOT change to bad character or bad behaviour.
  • MUST NOT take pride in winning or be discouraged by losing.

Dos and Don'ts

  • Do Not train straight after a meal, leave at least two hours.
  • Do Not sit down during traing session, even for a few minutes.
  • Do Not drink during training, only rinse your mouth with water.
  • Do Not have intercourse straight after training session.
  • Do train morning and evening to absorb Yin and Yang Energy.


  • The members put a lot of time and effort to run the school and teach students within it. Please be always on time, lateness is considered disrespectful. A plan of training is set out for each student when they join, it is therefore important absence is kept to a minimum and only when absolutely necessary, your Master invest time and effort to train you so show them the same dedication and respect. Try to inform us of any absences, leave a message on the email info@binhthaidao.com or contact us via mobile. Your absence is not only disruptive to your training but also for the other students and instructors. The school reserves the right to ask anyone to leave due to constant absence.


  • At the school we would like to ensure a friendly atmosphere that allows us all to train to our potential. The school is run as a Kung Fu family therefore any untoward behaviour and aggression toward any of its members will not be tolerated. Similarly it is absolutely forbidden for you to misuse the skills learnt at the school.

Training Room Rules

  • As in any training room there are certain rules which should be upheld at all times.
  • Before entering and exiting the training room you must bow and hand fist salute, showing respect for the school and its members.
  • Remove street shoes before entering the training area. Removing our street shoes is an ancient tradition. It is a sign of a visitor’s humility to remove their footwear and it preserves the hygiene of the training room.
  • Aim to be 10 minutes early to your lesson as being late is a sign of bad manners and disrespect to your Master.
  • Always walk quietly to the rear of a class in session. Never walk in front of the Master during a class.
  • If necessary, speak quietly when class in session and never when your Master is speaking.
  • No eating, drinking, smoking or chewing gum in the training room.
  • Control your emotions at all times. The training room is an excellent place to increase your self control.
  • Refrain from using foul language in or near the training room.
  • Always bow to the Master at the beginning and end of each class. Likewise, bow to your workout partner when practicing together.
  • Questions are encouraged throughout the lesson however they must be asked in the proper way and if necessary your Master will answer them after the lesson. Raise your hand should you have a question. Your Master will reserve a proper time in class to answer questions you may have. Do not disrupt the flow of the class by interrupting the Master with too many questions, these will often disrupt the flow of class and ultimately slow your progress.
  • Possession of drugs or alcohol in the training room is grounds for immediate dismissal.
  • Students should wear the traditional uniform in all classes. Once you have been awarded a sash you will also be required to wear this with pride. A dirty wrinkled uniform reflects badly on you as a student. Always wear a clean uniform to class. Take pride in your uniform!
  • Refer to your instructor with a title: Master. The respect you show towards others is a reflection of the respect you have for yourself and the arts.
  • It is poor judgment to always be asking about your next rank or wanting more material. This shows a lack of patience, humility and disrespect towards your Masters professional judgment. When your Master feels you are ready for more material he will be eager to share it with you. We all want to see you honestly progress.
  • Support your Training room. Always purchase your equipment from your Master. We will always strive to get you the best price and quality. By keeping the business in the training room, you help keep your tuition lower.
