What to expect for your first class:
- Plan to show up 10 minutes before scheduled class time to introduce yourself to the instructor and sign a safety waiver. Bring a water container to fill up with our water dispenser.
What to wear for your first class?
- Bring a Gi if you already have one, but otherwise wear comfortable exercise clothing. Long sleeves and long pants are recommended for newcomers to prevent friction burns from the mats. There might be a loaner Gi to borrow for your first class, sizing not guaranteed.
What if I'm not in shape?
- You do not have to be in "good shape" to start BJJ, conditioning will come over time.
-You are not expected to perform drills and techniques perfectly at first, just do your best and ask for help when needed.
-If you decide to roll towards the end of class, make sure to let your partner know if you've recently started. It is ok to watch at first if you're nervous.
I train at _____ and I'm visiting the La Palma area. Can I drop in to roll or come to open mat?
We love to train with visitors from other schools! Your first class visit is free, and a $20 mat fee for each additional class. If you're spending several weeks in La Palma, it might be worthwhile to consider a 1 month membership or a 10-Pack.
