Your First Class, How to Prepare and What to Expect

Welcome to Advantage Jiu Jitsu!

We’re happy to have you here. Looking to get sweaty on the mats? You’ve come to the right place. See below, a few small tips to get you started at our gym.

Arrival Time

If possible, please try to arrive 15 minutes early so you can meet the instructor, sign a waiver, and become orientated with our space.

What to Wear

If you have a gi of your own, bring it! We do not have a gi policy at Advantage Jiu-Jitsu! In fact the the entire purpose of Advantage Jiu-Jitsu is to be as accessible, welcoming, and judgement-free as possible. If you do not already own a gi, we have loaners available as well as gis for purchase. For a no-gi class, a rashguard and shorts should be worn.

What to Bring

A water bottle is highly recommended. We have a water cooler station so you can refill as needed. Also – bring your energy!

Class Structure

The typical class structure for all of our classes here at Advantage Jiu-Jitsu is a warm up with drilling, technique, and then positional and regular sparring. Please feel comfortable joining any of our classes, we will do our best to make you feel welcome and safe. You do not have to participate in sparring unless you feel comfortable to do so.
