In order to maintain good hygiene and cleanliness, please bring a clean pair of sandals, as outdoor shoes are not permitted. In addition, bring a t-shirt and shorts/leggings to wear underneath the kimono. You’ll be provided with a clean kimono to borrow during your intro class. Don’t forget to bring a water bottle or feel free to use our water fountains. This applies to adults and parents that are bringing their children. Parents are encouraged to bring their own sandals as well, since you will be removing your outdoor shoes in the waiting area.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was originally developed to help individuals that didn’t have matching athletic ability, strength or size of the aggressor. Grand Master Carlos and Grand Master Helio, the founders and creators of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu developed enhanced techniques that would empower individuals to protect themselves against bigger and stronger opponents.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the most complete form of martial art because it presents strike technique situations, ground control, throws, takedowns and submission holds. This is proven though Mixed Martial Arts (UFC, Bellator, One Championship), because every Professional Mixed Martial Artist must study Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in order to compete at the highest level.
