Requirements of students
The ten shaolin laws
All students are required to read, accept, and follow the Ten Shaolin Laws of our school.
These are as follows:
Required to respect the master, honor the Moral Way and love fellow disciples as brothers and sisters.
Required to train the Shaolin arts diligently, and as a prerequisite, to be physically and mentally healthy.
Required to be filial to parents, be respectful to the elderly, and protective of the young.
Required to uphold righteousness, and to be both wise and courageous.
Forbidden to be ungrateful and unscrupulous, ignoring the Laws of man and heaven.
Forbidden to rape, molest, do evil, steal, rob, abduct or cheat.
Forbidden to associate with wicked people; forbidden to do any sorts of wickedness.
Forbidden to abuse power, be it official or physical; forbidden to oppress the good and bully the kind.
Obliged to be humane, compassionate and spread love, and to realize everlasting peace and happiness for all people.
Obliged to be chivalrous and generous, to nurture talents and pass on the Shaolin arts to deserving disciples.
We find these to be an ideal moral code and practice both for the arts we train in our school and for our daily life and living.
Outside of these, all students are required to respect each other and the teacher, to obey the laws of their land, and to practice our arts with diligence and with trust in our teaching.
The limit for any refund request on courses is before your SECOND class under any curriculum or art taught if taking single classes, or, if enrolled in a regular class with more than two sessions in the program, after the end of your second class session or BEFORE your third class.
Our classes that allow one-time attendance provide material that we consider you wish to continue to learn if taking a second class and therefore a refund will not e issued if taking a subsequent class. If at the end of the first class, or anytime before, you feel unsatisfied or wish to discontinue training, you may have the fee for such classes refunded to you.
If enrolled in a regular class session or series, you have until the beginning of your third session, or anytime before then, to request a refund, your first and second full classes out of the series being completed.
If a class is cancelled prior to attendance, you will be refunded that class cost if paid already, as long as cancellation is declared at least 24 hours prior to the session.
If you fail to show up for a registered class paid in advance you will NOT be refunded if advanced notice is not given of at least 24-hours, barring extreme emergency or travel in inclement weather, provided prior notice is given as much as is possible.
When registering for a regular series of sessions that take place over several classes, any missed classes will not be refunded if they are beyond the initial cancellation policy noted above, as material will continue to be taught to those attending and not repeated unless another series of that material is taught in future.
Planned courses that are discontinued will be refunded if cancelled prior to the planned start date of teaching and purchased in advance.
For any other special circumstances or discontinuations after these time periods, we will not offer a refund, teaching and service having been rendered.
Any and all courses and classes may be cancelled at any time without prior notice and for any reason/s.
Planned cancellations will be noted for classes affected and on the calendar.
Our general practice is to notify students in advance of any class delays, cancellations, or rescheduling as-needed, for reasons including but not limited to severe weather, issues with space availability, attendance, or personal need. We strive to provide a 24-48-hour or greater notice as needed or possible depending on the situation.
If uncertain do not hesitate to reach out with the contact information you have been provided.
All public holidays will be observed and no classes will be taught on those days unless otherwise noted and agreed upon in special exceptions. Class curriculums will continue upon the next class meeting for regular courses.
