The world is falling in love with Jiu-Jitsu because it works! If you’re still on the fence, here are the answers to the 10 most common questions asked by first-time students:
1. What's the difference between jiu-jitsu and every other martial art?
Jiu-jitsu is designed to empower the weak against the strong and there are no physical prerequisites to get started. Literally ANYONE can learn jiu-jitsu especially when taught the Gracie way!
2. What if I don't have any previous experience?
No problem! Our beginner programs are specifically designed, from a structure and a safety perspective, for first-time jiu-jitsu practitioners, which is why we have the most successful jiu-jitsu schools in the world.
3. Do I need to be in shape?
No, we love you exactly how you are. You don’t get in shape to learn jiu-jitsu, you do jiu-jitsu to get in shape!
4. What should I wear?
Just show up in comfortable workout attire and we’ll provide everything you need. No special training equipment or protective gear is required.
5. Do I need to bow or call someone "sensei"?
The only time you need to bow at Atomic Jiu-Jitsu is when getting on the mats and getting off the mats. Instructors are called “coaches” and jiu-jitsu black belts are referred to as “professor”.
6. Can I bring a water bottle, and where can I store it?
Yes, you can bring a water bottle and store it near the edge of the mat.
7. Who will I practice with?
As a first-time student, we will pair you up with a slightly more experienced student who can answer your questions and help guide your learning throughout the class.
8. Will I get injured or embarrassed?
If you get injured or embarrassed you won’t come back. Everything about our beginner programs was specifically designed to make the classes as safe and encouraging for new students as possible.
9. Can I bring a friend to class?
Yes. Referrals are our number one source of business. Jiu-jitsu is so fun and addictive that people can’t help but talk about it to their friends. Feel free to bring a friend to any beginner class you attend!
10. How will my first class go?
It will be the best class of your life! Watch the video for a detailed breakdown of what to expect.
