Had a chance to roll with them during their bjj open mat on my way through town; Coach Steph was incredibly welcoming and I found myself scrambling to keep up with his team's exceptional skills. I'd recommend this gym to anyone: friendly, skilled, and clean!

Your First Day In BJJ “What To Expect”

There is no real “beginners courses” in BJJ, it’s pretty straight in at the deep end. Sink or swim.

You’ll turn up for your first session without a clue what to expect.  You’d probably did a bit of googling but really your entire knowledge of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu could be summed up as: “no punching or kicking, you win by getting your opponent to submit from choking or putting them into a position where you can break a bone”.

That is a pretty terrifying level of knowledge.

The class will be busy with a bunch of people “eyeballing” you, smelling the fear off your body as you walk by them. You won’t know what to do or where to go. You’ll try to relax and breathe, but still be nervous as hell!!

Well, I’m not trying to scare you, but I’m writing this as I know how you feel! Heck, everyone in that room knows how you feel, as we’ve all been to our first class as well. DON’T WORRY! We will take care of you. In your first class you’ll be paired up with one of our students that want to “pay it forward”. They’ll be your best friend and partner for the class. The instructor (ME) will introduce you to the team and make sure that all your 1000’s of questions are answered. We want to make sure only one thing happens….. You get hit with the SSL!

The SSL?? Yes….. we want to make sure you leave class accomplished and that you SMILE, SWEAT and LEARN. This the only way that you’ll want to come back and get immersed into BJJ.

So let’s go and get signed up! Let’s make sure you have a great experience in this awesome Martial Arts Family!
