    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Your school is definitely McDojo.
    our rules are basic
    - don't hit harder than you care to get hit back
    - don't be late
    - respect your training partners
    - work hard when you are there or don't bother coming to class

    And if you have more than that, your school is probably bullshido.

    Wow, a 'don't be a dick' rule..and YOU can still train there?

    So an update... I have not returned to the McDojo and I do not plan to. I tried a class at a different local place today and i'm really impressed - they were very familiar with the evils of the McDojo and they have great rules (stop if someone taps out, don't be an ass, etc) and overall the pricing is a much better value. Right on par with what it should be. They have two main classes (mma+bjj) and i'm going to do both - went to the bjj tonight and it was awesome.

    I feel ashamed to say that I was a chunner now, I wouldn't want to be a chunner in the ring against anyone.

    There's some rule at the hall we goto on saturdays about leaving the place the way it was when you came in. Therefore before we leave we make absolutely no attempt to clean anything.

    Last lesson i learnt that you shouldn't punch the sensei's precious daughter in the face. His son however...

    Oh and apparently his son and daughter arent allowed to partner up in training, i'm thinking he's seen them fight more than enough when they were at home.

    More seriously it's appreciated if you inform sensei beforehand if you can't make a training session.

    You can joke around and be an arse, but you really have to know when to and when not to, this is crucial.

    Other than that it's fairly general rules that don't stand out in my mind at the moment.
