RO agrees they will not share/divulge Clear Tai Chi™ Marketing Information
-One of the benefits to the RO of this agreement with Clear Tai Chi™ is the
sharing and personal teaching of Sales Marketing information to the RO.
-The RO agreement includes a non-compete and non-disclosure agreement.
Sharing Clear Tai Chi™ Sales Marketing info with others violates terms of
the agreement and will trigger a civil suit per the terms of the agreement.

advanced skills from Sigung Clear and they may be denied the right to
study from Clear Tai ChiTM or any of its affiliates, ROs or Instructors at
any time.

Teaching & Sharing with Clear Tai Chi™ Regional Organizers
-Teach & Share with other Regional Organizers (as appropriate for their
current level of skill) to help you and them grow.

-Our learning environment among ourselves is not a competition.

-Hiding skills or/& info from your fellow Clear Tai Chi™ practitioners &
Any attempt to turn the friendly sharing and learning environment
among Clear Tai Chi™ Instructors into a competition or a culture of
secrecy will be taken as an inappropriate and aggressive act that is a
violation of this part of the agreement that the RO has made in order
to be a Regional Organizer and constitutes grounds for immediate
removal from the RO position.

RO agrees Clear Tai Chi™ can market workshops to the RO’s students
-This includes by email, social media, phone or other forms of communication.

-The students at Clear Tai Chi™ Member Schools study Clear Tai Chi™

-Of course, RO and Certified instructors are encouraged and expected to help
market workshops on social media including FaceBook and by word of mouth
including to their students.

-Sigung Clear has a reasonable expectation of interaction with Clear Tai Chi™ Students.

-An RO who attempts to block or otherwise prevent communication between Clear Tai Chi™ (including Sigung Clear or his staff & designated agents) and Clear Tai Chi™ students will be committing an infraction that is actionable and that will likely result in the RO being removed from the RO position and also removal from being a Clear Tai Chi™ Certified Member School.

Problems with another RO, Certified Clear Tai Chi™ Member School Owner
It is expected that you will work to get along and interact peacefully and well with all of the other instructors in the organization and with support staff and management at Clear Tai Chi™ and go above and beyond to do that.

However, it is understood that at times situations happen and people get upset. In such situations it is expected that both parties will communicate and make overt efforts to try to solve the problem in a reasonable and productive manner. If a problem can’t be resolved in this fashion, then it needs to be brought to the attention of Sigung Clear along with a list of actions that have been taken to try to resolve the situation. It is easy for tempers and egos to flare when traveling and training long hours etc.. It is also very easy for people to have mis-communications.
If your ego is stopping you from making peace with a fellow RO or Certified Clear Tai Chi™ Member School Owner, then the problem is you. Both parties are reasonably expected to be able to work out their differences enough such that a personal disagreement or personality clash does not affect the other teachers and students or harm an event or workshop environment due to infighting or animosity of any kind.

Religion and politics are two of the worst causes of heated disagreement between people. If either of these issues (or something related to them) is a cause of dispute then politely ask the other party to not discuss it as you do not agree with their position (& strongly desire to keep the peace) OR state that it is simply not appropriate discussion at this time. Do NOT let the discussion continue without making a direct and obvious statement if you disagree (& want to keep the peace) as your lack of communication can cause them to think you are ok if the discussion continues even if you are not in agreement with them. This can cause both you, the offending party and anyone who is nearby much grief and unhappiness.

The best course of action is Apologies all around and agreeing to “let’s do some healing work, Tai Chi” tends to fix a lot. Again, If your ego is stopping you from making peace with a fellow RO or Certified Clear Tai Chi™ Member School Owner, then the problem is you.

-Upon discovery, Most infractions will be met by written notice with a specific time limit for remedy to the infraction. The RO may be removed from RO status until the infraction is remedied.

If the infraction is determined to be an intentional violation with an intent to hide, ignore or continue the infraction then the RO will be removed immediately from the RO position and upon review may no longer be allowed to study the Clear Tai Chi™ system.

There are items in this agreement that specifically state that an infraction is grounds for immediate termination from the RO position. Sigung Clear at his sole discretion will decide if immediate termination of the RO position is called for or if a warning (& rapid remedy by the RO) is sufficient.

Depending on the circumstances, when an RO resigns or is terminated for cause they may also be removed as a Certified Clear Tai Chi™ Member School. This removal decision is and shall remain at the sole discretion of Sigung Clear.

Disciplinary Action
-The items herein this agreement are for the benefit of all of the instructors in the Clear Tai Chi™ style and organization including you.

If you are the recipient of disciplinary action then it is your responsibility to do your best to fix the situation or to officially resign in writing. It is expected that you will do this professionally and honorably.

-A bad attitude about being asked, required, expected to follow the rules and / or fix any infractions will not be tolerated and are immediate grounds for complete dismissal / removal as an RO (and potentially from being a Certified Clear Tai Chi™ Member school).

-If an RO is terminated from or resigns from the RO position and is no longer a Certified Clear Tai Chi™ Member School then they must remove all official designations as a Clear Tai Chi™ instructor from their website(s) and FaceBook site(s) and anywhere else they may have them. The individual may still list that they received the Certification to be an instructor due to the course work that they completed. However, If the individual is not teaching Clear Tai Chi™ or is mixing some other lessons, styles, techniques, methods etc into their curriculum then they must remove anything that says they are teaching Clear Tai Chi™ as the dilution of the style (even if the dilution is that they are adding something) makes it no longer Clear Tai Chi™ and is therefore in violation of this agreement. RO agrees that failure to follow this direction may result in a civil suit as a means of partial remedy. RO further agrees that Damages to Clear Tai Chi™ alone are an insufficient remedy .

-If an RO chooses to step down BUT still offers Clear Tai Chi™ classes without dilution, AND they have not committed any offense(s) so there are no disputes and there are no legal or moral problems or issues, THEN they may ask Sigung Clear for permission to continue to use the licensed name of Clear Tai Chi™ as a Certified Member School

Individuals may only advertise that they offer Clear Tai Chi™ if they receive written permission from Sigung Clear to do so.

Sigung Clear will allow or deny the request to continue teaching Clear Tai ChiTM at his sole discretion based on the circumstances including (but not limited to) the individual’s reason for leaving the organization, the merits of the individual and their behavior, the stated reason for their continuation of classes, and their overall request.
