Rules & Regulations

The following are UMA’s school rules & regulations for the training environment.

If you have any questions concerning these regulations, by all means, ask the instructor.


EQUIPMENT & ATTIRE

  • Attire is informal, yet should allow for free range of movement. No metal snaps, exposed zippers, jewelry, or anything hazardous that could harm your training partner or damage the mats.
  • You must wear wrestling shoes or train barefoot on the mats. No street shoes!
  • Hand protection is mandatory when striking focus mitts, pads, punching bags, etc.
  • At a minimum, inexpensive boxing handwraps will suffice. (Wraps can be purchased from UMA or ask the Instructor for a list of recommended equipment suppliers.)
  • Use of personal equipment needs approval by the Instructor and must be kept clean and in good repair. Please use your own cleaning products and reserve UMAproducts for UMA gear.
  • Store your gear and personals so the floor remains uncluttered.


SAFETY

  • Free sparring & grappling is only allowed under the direct supervision of an instructor.
  • If engaged in sparring, students must wear proper safety equipment. Mouth guards and gloves are mandatory. Males should have and use a groin protector.
  • Members assume total responsibility for their safety and physical condition. Inform the Instructor and your training partner of any injury or condition which may limit or restrict your movement.
  • Any injuries must be reported to the Instructor at the time they occur.


HEALTH AND HYGIENE

  • Stay hydrated. Bring a water bottle and replenish yourself whenever needed. Keep bottles clear from the training environment.
  • Keep fingernails and toenails trimmed and clean. Long hair should be tied back and jewelry removed.
  • After class clean all equipment you used.
  • Read club information and educate yourself about MRSA and staph infection.
  • Don’t chew gum while training.


IN ADDITION…

  • The UMA Club does not have a cleaning staff. It is up to members to keep the bathroom clean and tidy. Let the Instructor know when supplies (first aid, cleaning, etc.) need restocking.
  • A person causing damage to UMA property shall be liable for repair or replacement.
  • Make certain you understand when the next payment is due. Mark your calendar. Never expect the Instructor to excuse a lack of donation. To attend without contributing is unfair to those training and undermines the student/teacher relationship.
  • These rules are intended as a general guideline. A student should endeavor to behave in accordance with good manners, common decency and common sense.

The will to win compares little with the will to prepare to win.

Testimonial

Passion, Skill, ongoing Knowledge and Professional. To find qualities such as these at a Martial Arts School can be rare. To find them all in one Instructor is even rarer. Rob Eis and his Unbridled Martial Arts School have all of these. Rob’s Passion to his school, students, and his training are noticeable from the first time you meet him. He devotes a lot of his own free time to provide training to all of his students. Those who pay him and those he teaches due to his passion for his Art. He provides a great deal of useful knowledge for a minimal fee; he doesn’t waste your time with outdated training or tradition. His Skill is well documented, yet he is not overbearing or unapproachable to ask questions. He provides a full range of Martial Arts instruction with great skill. He continually seeks new training to incorporate into his teachings. His ongoing Knowledge lets his students and other Instructors know that he has an open mind and is always looking to improve. He is eager to learn and will try new material and not tie his hands to one way. This provides his students with a wide variety of information to constantly work with. Rob is a true Professional. He is a hard worker, a great self-promoter and an up standing citizen. Rob proves it’s not Quantity but Quality. He provides a safe, clean and fun training facility with energetic instruction. His students share in Rob’s energetic teaching and create a great atmosphere. I recommend Rob Eis and Unbridled Martial Arts to anyone looking for great Instruction, well-rounded training, a safe environment, and professionalism.
