Frequently asked questions

Do I need to get in shape before coming to class?

No. The best way to get in shape for Jiu Jitsu is to do Jiu Jitsu. Because it is such a full body workout using strength, indurance, explosiveness, and true grit there is nothing that you can do before hand that will prepare you for class. Most people start Jiu Jitsu to help them to get in shape. Our classes are designed for people to go at their own pace and eventually work torwards completing an entire class session.

What do I need to know to get ready for my trial class?

Below are a few things to know before your first class. What to Wear? -Upper Body: Rashguard or Tight Fitting T-Shirt. -Lower Body: Swim/Fight Shorts and/or Leggings for Females. -Underwear: Underarmor Style or Tight Fitting Underwear. Boxers for boys will quickly become unfortable as they bunch up while training. Clothing for trial classes cannot have zippers as they can damage the mat. Also, please do your best to wear something without pockets as people can get their fingers caught in them. Sorry boys, no cups are allowed. These tend to cause more harm and discomfort to your training partners than they do protection for you. We can provide more detail on the exact uniform requirements for training beyond your first class when we see you. What to Bring? - Sandals or flip flops to class so that you can easily slip them on and off when getting on and off of the mat. You will be barefoot while on the mat, but shoes are needed for any time that you are off of the mat. - Water Bottle. We have a drinking fountain if you forget or need a refill. - Mouth pieces are not required for your first class and are always optional. But most people eventually get one. Personal hygiene is a must when training Jiu Jitsu. -Please make sure your clothing is clean. - If you were sweating during work, school, or play, it is advised that you shower before arriving at class. - It is also important to keep your finger nails and toe nails trimmed short so that you do not accidently scratch someone during training which can lead to an infection. - No hair gels, perfumes, excessive makeup, etc. Please remember Jiu Jitsu is a very close contact activity and you will be exercising with others. Remember, even if you like the smell, others may not. Hair gels, excessive makeup, etc. tend to get all over the mat and other peoples uniform. Questions or Concerns? Please feel free to contact via Phone, Text, or E-Mail. We will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have or ease your concerns. We look forward to having you and/or your child in class. We cannot wait for you to begin your Jiu Jitsu journey with us!
