What do I need for class?

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?

Have you trained Brazilian Jiu Jitsu before? Do you have a colored belt (blue, purple, brown, black)? Contact us here or call/text 360.329.2289 so we can get you in the appropriate class.

Want to get a head start on the classes?

We have put together an handbook for you. It covers some of the principles that guide our practice, a small primer on how Jiu Jitsu approaches self defense, and general tips for a more productive class. It is not required reading, but then neither are cookbooks. Unless you are slinging hash like Anthony Bourdain it doesn't hurt to take a peak at the instructions. ;)

You can access the intro handbook right here. 

Do you have any questions or feedback?
We would love to hear it. Drop us a line here and we will get back to you no time at all. 

Looking forward to having you in class!
