Everyone gets a free class to see if you enjoy Jiu Jitsu and our Academy. Here is a little information to help you get ready for your first class.
What do I wear for the classes?
The intro level courses are all nogi or no kimono. Typical attire is board shorts and a tee shirt. Ladies can wear yoga pants/athletic bottoms and a tee shirt. You don’t want to wear anything too loose and no jewelry is allowed. No exposed zippers please. We want to eliminate anything that could catch fingers, toes, or cause an injury.
Do I need to bring anything?
Please bring the following; 1) an ID for the waiver, 2) a change of clothes if you wish to change here, 3) a water bottle - we have water and cups here if you need them.
What can I expect to do in class?
The intro classes feature the self defense techniques of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All classes begin with a warm up that consists of individual movement drills designed to develop coordination, and body awareness. We then move on to partner drills that highlight the techniques we are covering for the week. All of the drills include the element of progressive resistance (your partner helps raise the bar slowly as your success rate increases). Emphasis is always placed on working with your partner in a productive fashion under great instruction.
I have some experience, and I think I can skip the intro classes. Who do I talk to about this?
