RULES of ENGAGEMENT

Cleanliness and safety are of the utmost importance at Barbary Coast Grapplers. Please read the entire list of rules before attending. By signing the waiver you are agreeing to the following rules and fees:

INQUIRY FEE.

The fee for an initial inquiry is $25.

This deposit may be paid via Paypal, and will be applied to your booking. The fee is non-refundable. We take this very seriously and this shows us that you do too. The fees for all other services are listed here.

WAIVER.

All participants must sign a waiver prior to using the facilities.

HYGIENE.

To keep things fun for everyone, BCG requires participants and staff alike to observe the following protocols:

  • Fingernails and toenails must be short and clean.
  • Clothing must be clean and free from odor; we recommend wearing long sleeve rash guards and board shorts.
  • Body must be clean and free from odor; all skin must be free of rashes and communicable skin diseases.
  • Your trainer will stop the lesson if anyone is bleeding. The lesson may resume after blood is completely removed from the mats and from the affected areas of the body.
  • If there is vomit, urine, feces, excrement or excessive blood body fluid that is a biohazard, your trainer will end the lesson immediately. The responsible party (i.e., the member or renter) must completely clean the area and inform staff (email info@barbarycoastgrapplers.com). A sanitation fee of $200 may apply.
  • Participants agree to pre-authorize BCG to charge their credit card, or debit their checking account, in the amount of $200 if BCG staff determine that the premises have been left in an unsanitary condition.
  • Participants agree to use and respect out "tap out system".
  • Video and other recordings are strictly prohibited unless written consent is given by BCG
  • Designated mat time is strictly enforced. We charge additional fees if your session/lesson exceeds your designated time.

ILLEGAL MOVES.

The following moves are prohibited:

  • Spinal cranks, twisting joint locks, small joint locks (fingers and toes), slamming, hair pulling, eye gouging, biting, scratching, and pinching skin
  • Striking (unless mutually agreed upon by all parties)
  • Sticking fingers or any other object in orifices including eyes, ears, nose and mouth.

SEXUAL CONTACT.

Sexual contact, including fingers in orifices, is prohibited. BCG is strictly a grappling environment. Anyone who violates this rule will be expelled immediately from the premises and will not be issued a refund.
