This is not a checklist of behaviors to police, but a way that we honor the journey and personhood of everyone that steps onto our mat.
Respect, discipline, integrity, honor, safety: these are the ways that our community cares for one other and for the St. Croix Valley area we are a part of.
Treat all IKMF members, instructors, staff, and members of the public with integrity and respect.
When in the gym, students are expected to be mindful of their behavior before, during, and after class.
Be mindful of safety in training, both for yourself and for fellow students.
Valley Self-Defense is dedicated to providing a safe and inviting experience for everyone, regardless of gender, age, sexual orientation, ability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion (or lack thereof).
