How to start jiu jitsu


1  /  Come and observe

Come meet the instructors to get a class placement that suits your comfort and skill level. Beginner classes are Tuesday and Thursday nights at 6:00pm.

2  /  Registering for a 2 week trial

When you register for a 2 week trial you should have the appropriate gear for the classes that you want to participate in. It is not uncommon for us to have a Gi you may wear for trial classes if you don't own one. For NoGi we recommend fight shorts and a rash guard. During the two week trial you may wear gym shorts and a t-shirt for NoGi if needed.

3  /  Signing up for a membership

At anytime during your trial, you can sign up for membership. Our memberships are month to month. When you sign up for membership you will be offered a discount on items like a Gi, rash guard, or fight shorts.


Am I Ready?

It is natural to feel concerned about your skill level or be apprehensive when starting a class. Effective communication is crucial for success. At our facility, our members are always considerate of various skill and fitness levels. Many times, friends begin classes together and often pair up for most sessions.

Do I need to be in good shape to start Jiu-Jitsu?

No, Jiu-Jitsu is for everyone, regardless of fitness level. Classes are designed to accommodate individuals of various physical conditions, and you'll improve your fitness as you train.

What do I need?

You will need a black Jiu-Jitsu Gi. They are available for purchase at the academy, or you can find one online. Please ensure it is black. A Gi may be provided for your trial period. For NoGi you can wear gym shorts and a t-shirt.

Can I start Jiu-Jitsu with no martial arts experience?

Absolutely! Many people begin Jiu-Jitsu with no prior martial arts background. Classes are structured to accommodate beginners, and you'll learn at your own pace.

Is Jiu-Jitsu safe, or will I get injured?

While injuries can happen in any physical activity, Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes control and technique, reducing the risk of injuries. It's important to note that in the spirit of Jiu-Jitsu, no one wants to hurt their training partners; the focus is on mutual respect and ensuring a safe and enjoyable training environment. Proper warm-ups, cool-downs, and attentive coaching further contribute to a safer training experience

What is your membership policy?

Memberships are month to month and are due on the 1st or 15th of the month, depending on your start date.

What is your cancelation policy?

A 30 day notice is required to cancel your membership. This does mean that in most all cases an additional payment will be taken after cancelation. You are able and encouraged to train during that month to get the most out of your remaining time with us.


We hope to see you soon!
