Classroom expectations

Home / Help for families / Taekwondo classes / Classroom expectations

Taekwondo students are expected to:

  • Do their best to arrive at class on time
  • Come to class prepared, dressed in their white pants and Taekwondo t-shirt, or alternatively, loose, comfortable clothing
  • Wait in the foyer/reception area with their parents before class starts
  • Give a gold coin to Aaron on the way into class and be ticked off on the roll
  • Listen quietly when others are speaking, especially any adult/s in charge
  • Follow any directions given by any adult/s in charge
  • Raise their hand before speaking during class
  • Participate in class activities
  • Keep hands and feet and objects to themselves (that means no hitting, kicking, or throwing things at others)
  • Put their rubbish in the bin
  • Leave the Centre no later than 6.00 p.m.

Taekwondo students must NOT:

  • Tease or put others down
  • Practice Taekwondo without an instructor present
  • Visit “Out of Bounds” areas

Areas that are “out of bounds” at The Bouverie Centre during Taekwondo class:

  • Reception
  • Therapy rooms
  • Hallways
  • Outside

Each class will end with a two minute talk about bullying and other social issues/behaviours specific to Taekwondo and Self Defence.

Anyone who does not abide by the class rules will receive a verbal warning and may be sat out for a given amount of time depending on the issue. They will be asked to apologise before returning so they can take ownership of their actions.

If someone is having consistent difficulty following the class rules, his/her parents and therapist will be notified so that we can discuss the situation further.
