SEXUAL HARASSMENT POLICY
Iron Roots BJJ prohibits discrimination of any kind, including sexual harassment by instructors, fellow
students and any other participant at Iron Roots BJJ.
Sexual Harassment is defined as any harassment based on a person’s sex, such as unwelcome sexual
advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature, including
offensive remarks about a person’s gender. Both males and females can be victims of sexual harassment.
Prohibited behavior includes any behavior that creates an offensive environment (Hostile Environment) or
that results in an adverse imbalance of power such as the victim being denied advancement or assistance
(Quid pro Quo). Some examples include:
 A higher ranking student telling a lower ranking student that they will advance quicker if they
provide special favors.
 While grappling one partner touches the other longer than is necessary or in a caressing manner.
 Texting another student unsolicited nude photos.
These examples are not all-inclusive.

Individuals violating this policy will be subject to discipline, up to and including permanent expulsion from
the school.
Students, regardless of gender, should report any instances of sexual harassment to the owners of Iron
Roots BJJ. The report will be investigated and the individual doing the harassment may be asked to leave.
Insofar as possible, reports will be maintained as confidential in order to prevent retaliation.
Iron Roots BJJ strives to maintain an inclusive, safe and positive training environment for all students. We
are grateful for your cooperation in creating this uplifting environment.
I have read, understood and agree to abide by this policy.
