Q Do I need a conditioning and strength program before I start my first Jiu Jitsu Class?

You do not need to do any conditioning or strength training before your first class. You will gain conditioning and strength while learning in class. Most training you do before hand will help a little, but Jiu Jitsu uses more muscles than most exercise alone do. The training is intense and better than swimming. Don’t wait to take a class because your out of shape. Doing something that you find fun will motivate you to get in shape and be a better you.

Q I am older and not athletic as I once was. Can I still learn the techniques of Gracie Jiu Jitsu?

You can learn Jiu Jitsu at any age! In fact, we have students that are 75 plus, have a pace maker, and other health conditions that benefit from Jiu Jitsu. Jiu Jitsu helps with keeping you healthy and challenges you to stay motivated. We recommend all ages join and learn new techniques.

Q I am afraid to get hurt learning Jiu-Jitsu. What are the chances I do?

First rule in the gym is that no one gets hurt. Second rule is don’t forget the first rule. We take safely very seriously and before you start in your first class, we will go over the rules of the gym with you.

In my life of being a Jiu Jitsu teacher I have had close to zero incidents of people getting hurt. A lot depends on how we as professional Jiu Jitsu teachers teach the class and take safety seriously. It’s also important to note that a way to keep yourself from getting hurt is listening to your instructor and doing the moves correctly.

Q How many Gi’s do I need to own?

The traditional Gi is white and is the number one Gi we recommend you start with. The International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation does authorize the use of black and blue Gi. Most likely you will need black and blue Gi down the road for competition or depending on your instructor.

It is recommended to have enough Gi depending on your washing schedule. If you can afford to wash your Gi every night you can use the same Gi. However, if you wash once a week you may want to consider multiple Gi for each class during the week.

Q Do I need additional gear other than the Gi to train?

You need a rash guard, fight shorts, mouth guard, groin protectors, grappling ear protectors, wrestling knee pads, and should consider gear bags.
