Welcome to your first week at 10th Planet Jiu Jitsu amsterdam!
we have guidelines
to ensure everyone's safety and to maintain a positive and GROWTH-MINDED environment
training guidelines

Respect for your training environment and training partners is very important in Jiu Jitsu and forms the basis of a healthy practice. We therefore expect all participants to comply with these rules of conduct:



  • Safety is the top priority, fun is the second priority, and growth is the third.

  • Jiu-jitsu is a multi-year or lifelong journey - take your time to learn and grow with mindful repetition 

  • Respect your training partner and instructors.  We are all growing together.  Aim to not cause injury regardless of the intensity of the situation.  Be cool.

  • Never yank or pull submissions too hard that could cause injury to you or your training partner.

  • Keep your toenails and fingernails short and clean.  Cuts suck.

  • Wear clean training clothes (T-shirt + shorts or rashguard, shorts & spats).  

  • Tight-fitting clothing is recommended to prevent mat burn, and protect your training partner from toes/fingers getting caught in loose-fitting clothing.

  • Remove all jewelry (including piercings) for safety ... unless you didn't like that necklace.

  • Make sure you smell fresh before training.  Not like flowers, just not like a day-old gym towel.

  • Wear flip-flops or shoes when walking off the martial arts mat.  Do not walk back on the mat after walking off the mat without flip-flops/shoes.  Our faces touch the mat ... bare feet in bathroom, then on our faces ... not good.

  • Injuries and (chronic) illnesses such as epilepsy and asthma must be shared in advance to the instructor so that this can be taken into account during the training.

  • Untreated and healing wounds should be covered and not exposed on the mat.  Take all cuts seriously so they heal quickly.

  • Showering immediately after class at the gym is recommended for hygiene.  We recommend Defense Soap as it kills various nasties that can infect cuts and scratches.

  • Listen carefully to the instructors and follow their instructions.  We're here to help you grow.

  • Leave the training room and changing rooms neat ... it's our "home".
