Can I cancel anytime?
Yes. If you find that our training is not right for you, you can cancel any time. Just give us two months notice in advance.
What can I expect in a typical training class?
Our class begins with a warm-up: jumping jacks, running laps, on-the-back crawls, etc. After the warm-up, students learn the techniques of the day. Each student partners up with another student to practice the demonstrated technique. For our intermediate and advanced students, the last 20 minutes of class is spent sparring against other students. You can read more about it on this page.
Will classes fit my schedule?
During weekdays, we offer classes multiple times a day: in early morning, at noon, and in the evening. You can drop in at any of those times (or all of those times) that work for you. We are also open on Saturday morning, where we have family training, available to all ages and skill levels.
How often can I train?
With adult membership, there is no limit on the number of times you can come into the gym, which means you can train as often as you’d like. Kids classes for ages 6 through 12 are offered Monday through Friday. Tiny tots classes for ages 2 through 5 are offered twice a week. Saturday we have family training at 10 A.M., which is available to all ages and skill levels.
Are there women who train in the gym?
Yes, we have many female students who train in our gym. Female students usually pair with other female students during training, although that’s by choice and not a requirement.
What does BJJ stand for?
BJJ is an acronym for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
What are different types of classes you offer?
We offer 4 main types of classes: Gi, No Gi, Kids, and Fight Fit.
- Gi Classes: Gi is a traditional martial arts uniform originating in Japan, which is currently worn by Jiu Jitsu practitioners. Our classes in the gi are further separated into three categories: Fundamentals, Intermediate and Advanced.
- No-Gi Classes: For the No-Gi class, students wear a rash guard and shorts. This class is ideal for students who are interested in MMA-style grappling.
- Kids Classes: Kids classes (ages 5 through 13) focus on the fundamentals of self-defense and anti-bullying techniques.
- Fight Fit Classes: Fight fit is a class focused primarily on conditioning in the martial arts.
How many gis should I own?
Usually, students own multiple gis. Even if you are a beginner, it’s good to own at least two or three gis.
When can I start grappling other students?
Unlike most schools, we don’t allow beginner students to roll right away. This reduces the risk of injury. For the first 3 months of classes beginner students focus solely on improving their fitness and learning basic techniques. Only when we are sure our students are ready do we allow them to roll together so that we can ensure the safety of everyone.
What makes you different from other Jiu Jitsu schools?
One aspect that truly sets us apart from other jiu jitsu schools is our world-class instructors. They are jiu jitsu champions who have won countless titles across various tournaments.
Who are the instructors? What are their credentials?
Our instructors, Raul and Roberto Jimenez, have both reached the absolute pinnacle of the sport. Both are IBJJF, Pan American, and European Champions. The IBJJF (International Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Federation) hosts the biggest and most prestigious Brazilian Jiu Jitsu tournaments in the world.
Roberto Jimenez was ranked the #1 juvenile blue belt in the world, winning both his weight and absolute division in 2016 and 2017. He was also the first athlete, at only 16 years old, to win the Royal tournament, an invitation-only event. Please refer to the article below:
