Academy Rules

*please note our updated competition policy below
  • Be on time for class! Your teammates need YOU on the mats.
  • Greet the instructor when you enter the mat area.
  • If you are late, wait for the instructor to acknowledge you before you step onto the mats.
  • Refrain from chatter while the instructor is teaching.
  • Drill the techniques your instructor provides during class time.
  • Train hard! Your progress depends on your own effort.
  • Wear clean, dry gi or nogi attire to EVERY class. BJJ is a close quarters sport and you owe it to your teammates to wear clean gear to class.
  • Always ensure your nails are trimmed and filed before coming to class. Excessively long finger and toenails can cause serious lacerations to your teammates.
  • Avoid coming to class if you are suffering from any type of communicable illness.
  • Tap early and often! Being healthy enough to continue training is always more important than escaping a submission in training.
  • Always apply submission holds with appropriate care and allow your training partners ample time to tap. Take care of each other!
  • Take care of yourself. If you’re injured, take the time you need to heal up before returning to training. I promise that BJJ will be there when you get back.

Competition policy

With lots of competitions finally back on schedules across the country, the High Noon coaching staff has developed a new policy regarding training requirements for competition.

“You can only fight the way you practice.” – Miyamoto Musashi, A Book of Five Rings

Our coaching staff has decades of competition experience and one of the most important lessons we’ve learned is that you MUST prepare properly to achieve consistent success in competition. Even with proper preparation, success is STILL not guaranteed! Failing to prepare, however, does a huge disservice to the team you represent, the coaches and teammates that spend time and energy training with you, and, most importantly, yourself.

Absolute minimum of two training sessions per week. For newer practitioners especially – Coach Leah has been an integral resource in game planning over the course of High Noon’s existence. She is an experienced competitor herself and a resource you should seriously consider consulting if newer to competition.

Absolute minimum of three training sessions per week. Student will also discuss a training plan with Coaches Tim and Matt for approval.

The coaching staff puts forth a lot of effort to ensure that competitively inclined students have an opportunity to succeed. The above requirements assist in giving the student a baseline training load to be successful in competition. Please note, that the above requirements are minimums. Additional training sessions are always encouraged for students who are preparing for competitions.

Last, just so it is clear, we do not expect you to compete under the High Noon flag at any competition unless you have met these standards. You are, of course, ultimately free to do what you please (i.e. compete independently, etc.), but it is important for us to set a baseline standard of readiness for those that want to represent the gym in competition.

Please feel free to contact coaches Tim and Matt with any questions.
