Frequently Asked Questions
• When training Jiu Jitsu, you should be able to commit a minimum, two 90 minute training sessions per week.
• When you contact us, we’ll discuss how to structure your first few weeks of training based on your specific attributes and schedule.
Our program is what you secretly know you need. We actually welcome sissy noobs because we love transforming sissy noobs into Jiu Jitsu machines. It might not be comfortable and it will be hard work. But you’ll feel fucking great about yourself. And we promise that everyone on the mats knows what it was like to have started at zero and will help you on your road to becoming a non-sissy noob.
Our All-Levels classes are absolutely suitable for beginners. Even though the instruction assumes a basic foundation, our coaches and team of helpful students will happily work with you individually to build you a rock solid foundation as fast as possible.
At the end of the day, live sparring is what sets apart effective martial arts from the fake ones. Sparring during class is a fundamental component of why Jiu Jitsu works in a real fight, and it is critical in order to know that the techniques you’re drilling actually work in real life.
We encourage most students to spar from day 1, but you will not be required to spar until Coach feels you are mentally and physically ready. However, this may likely be before you, yourself feel you are ready.
Injury prevention is our TOP priority. But as with any sport, there is always the possibility of injury. However, BJJ has been proven to work so well precisely because it is specifically designed to minimize the chaos and likelihood of injury in a combat scenario. If you are injured, you’re less likely to win a fight.
You can count on the coaches to ensure not only a safe training environment, but that you are paired with appropriate and controlled training partners as well. So if you remain smart and controlled, the likelihood of injury is minimal.
Our only uniform requirements are that you and your gear be clean, that you wear a rash guard under your Gi top, and compression pants under your board shorts (No Gi). Being on the receiving end of a Triangle Choke is never fun, but it sucks even more when your opponent isn’t wearing any compression pants.
We have quality and generic gear for sale at competitive prices and we certainly appreciate the support, but you are not required to purchase from us. As far as we’re concerned, Jiu Jitsu is very much about self expression. So express yourself. We won’t make you rent or purchase our uniforms so that we can milk you of all your hard earned money.
Yes we do. Please see our trial policy at the top of our ADULT PRICING PAGE for details.

We have not seen a single instance where our program has made anyone more aggressive. In fact, we typically see the opposite. There are two primary reasons for this: 1) Sparring is a fundamental component of BJJ and sparring is likely the single best outlet for stress, aggression and anxiety. Folks are typically more relaxed in general, when they train BJJ on a regular basis. 2) As students develop their skills and utilize them in sparring at the gym and in competition, it becomes perfectly evident the power of what they are learning, and so the need to prove to themselves that they are capable of handling a physical confrontation in the school yard or at a bar diminishes entirely. Instead they’re able to use judgement.
Focus is a critical element to success with any endeavor, and the development of focus is a critical component of our youth program. In certain situations our coaches may single children out in order to both encourage and discourage certain behavior including focus, respect, hard work and technique. However, we understand that the development of these skills takes time and so our Youth Program is structured in such a way that no one student would ever hold back a group of more experienced students in the same class.
Tuition for our 3-4 y/o program is $104/mo. Tuition for our 5-7 y/o program is $197/mo. Tuition for our 8-12 y/o program is $218/mo. We require five days advance notice of cancellation for the first month and 20 days advance notice thereafter.
We no longer offer trial classes, as we do not require long term contracts and we’ve found it compromises the integrity of our program for our coaches to have to take their attention away from our paying and committed students for trial members who are not committed for at least one month. However, you are most welcome and encouraged to schedule a class viewing.
Students will require a Gi (Jiu Jitsu Kimono), which we’ll provide at no cost for the first month and ask parents please purchase for a discounted price of $85 upon the second month of training.
