RULES AND CONDITIONS

SOME RULES AND CONDITIONS TO CONSIDER BEFORE GOING TO CHINA

At our facilities, we wish to keep a positive environment that will nurture our students growth and help them to develop themselves in the best way possible.

No person is welcome at the academy who

  • Is lazy and unwilling to clean up after themselves regarding their living quarters and/or personal hygiene
  • Is unwilling to participate in classes or will not follow their masters instruction
  • Who lies or who attempts to cover up for another student who has lied
  • Is unfriendly or insolent to others (to students, teachers, or any other person) or presumes to be better than other students in any way, or who tries to create disharmony between others, for any reason.

Note: If the academy manager feels for any reason an applicant or student does not meet the academy's requirements or learns of anything he feels would not be in accordance with the academy's rules or ways he may reject the applicant at any time; even if the applicant or student had earlier been accepted.  The academy is not responsible for any expenses an applicant may incur on their own behalf to prepare for training at the academy before they actually attend the academy or for any other reason.

In order to keep the academy's environment positive for the serious students who go there to study, any student without exception who shows any of the above or other negative character traits, deemed as such by the academy's manager will be given one warning before being dismissed from the academy, no refunds (of any nature) will be made to the student or whoever may have paid their tuition and/or other fees for them.

When a student leaves the academy grounds, whether it is to go to the nearby villiages, city of Si Ping or on a short vacation away from the area, they must sign out and provide information as to where they are going, contact information, the reason for absence and when they will return. The acadmey insists upon this for the students personal safety in case they may run into any difficulties while they are away from the academy. With this knowledge the academy staff may better know where to find their students and provide assistance to them in any way they can.

Like any academy or organization, our rules and disciplinary actions are subject to change. A copy of the main rules and disciplinary actions will be given to students upon their arrival so they may be aware of them.

Students may bring their laptop computer, but may not use it to view or communicate with hate sites, porn sites or use it for online gambling, use it commercially or to send spam e-mail through listservers or for hacking sites . . . or for any other unsocial, immoral, or illegal use.  Abuse in this area could be cause for confiscating the computer or dismissing the student from the academy or both and in some instances if the activity of the student is not allowed by the chinese government criminal charges with resulting severe penalties may ensue.

Regarding male and female cohabitation: there is no cohabitation or sexual activity allowed at the academy regardless of whether it's boy and girl-friend, fiance or spouse.

Gambling, Drugs (including marijuana) and alcohol, or visiting prostitutes in villages or towns when the student is away from the academy are prohibited. Breaking these rules will mean immediate dismissal from the academy and a forfeiture of 20% of the balance of fees paid by, or for, the student.

No religious activities are allowed, other than personal prayer before or after training times so the student's training is not disrupted.

Students are not allowed to have animals, birds, or other pets at the academy. If you wish to care for pets, there are three dogs at the academy that you may care for. The reason we do not permit additional pets is for when a student leaves the academy, they will leave the burden of additional pets upon the academy staff and remaining students who may not wish to take care of them.

By submission of the Academy Application Form and by their attendance at the academy, each student agrees to the above rules or conditions.
