SKS Sparring Safety Gear Policy

Just a reminder, all students who participate
in sparring must wear ALL of their safety
gear!

This includes mouth guard, cup and
supporter, for the appropriate sex.

This is Mandatory going forward.

Truthfully, I strongly recommend that
males wear a cup and supporter for
every class.

It’s just good self defense.

All sparring safety gear must be purchased
through SKS, however, you do have
permission to purchase the cup, supporter
and mouth guard locally.

Some people prefer to buy a premium mouth
guard; and cup and supporters are available
everywhere for the same price as I can
purchase them for you.

For those of you that might be new, students
are eligible to spar when they join our leadership
program at the intermediate level.

Yesterday, we had a minor incident where one
of our male students was struck in the groin by
accident and to put it mildly, I think he regrets
he was not wearing his cup!

And……

I have been receiving communication from my
insurance company that my students must
wear all of their safety gear.

So, going forward……

We will do a line up check before class
and if a student does not have all their
appropriate gear, they will be asked
watch class from the sidelines.

Please understand, the safety of my students
is ALWAYS my #1 priority and this policy
serves this purpose.

If you have lost or out grown your cup,
supporter or mouth guard, I would be
happy to order a new one for you.  Just
let me know.

If you have any questions, please don’t
hesitate to ask me.

Thank you for your cooperation.
