Code of Conduct
TSG members should remember that their conduct inside and outside of TSG reflects upon the art and the club. Because the well-being of TSG members is paramount, members are expected to conduct themselves in a way that is respectful of other people’s physical, mental and emotional health. As a club, we do not tolerate:
Criminal offenses of any sort
Conduct that imposes inherent danger to the safety or well-being of another person.
Derogatory or offensive conduct, including rude or disrespectful language or actions about another person’s ethnic background, race, age, religion, disability, gender or sexual orientation.
Inappropriate / threatening physical or verbal behavior, including sexual harassment
Theft or purposeful destruction of training equipment, TSG assets, or other personal property
The purposeful misrepresentation of the intellectual work of another as one’s own without proper citation, including plagiarism or theft of intellectual property
Any violation of this Code of Conduct should be reported immediately to instructors or the Board of Directors.
At TSG we believe that an inherent part of a robust academic atmosphere is a preference for healthy intellectual skepticism over unquestioning acceptance of unsubstantiated hypotheses. As such, we encourage all members to question techniques, research, and theories discussed by other members, including those presented by instructors. However, members should offer this criticism in a respectful way that is not disruptive to classes, demonstrations, or other instruction. Likewise, we encourage members to be respectful in their disagreements with other organizations that are sincerely seeking to understand historical martial practices.
