Information

We're happy to have you join us!

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.
