I'm going to do the DEFINITIVE article on this someday, everytime I do a list it seems I always leave off something important. So a forum thread might be easier. Feel free to add your own, I just might add it to the article and give you credit:
These Etiquette rules are pretty much universal for any academy I've ever been at. A lot of different academies will have their own addition rules. Therefore the first rule of BJJ Etiquette is:
1: To ALWAYS know the rules of the house and abide by them. How things fly back home really don't count here, the instructor and students at the academy spent a long time building up a type of environment and you're the guest.
1A: If you're not sure of something or what the proper rules are, you can always ASK, and a representative of the home academy must tell you the answer in a friendly manner.
