Below are some of the frequently asked questions about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.
What is No Gi Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu without the Kimono or Gi is an ever increasingly popular sport that uses all the basic takedown and submission techniques of Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling and Judo and incorporates them into a singular type of grappling. While we love to train in the kimono; which is largely regarded as the foundations of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. No Gi training is an essential part of a fully rounded grappling game.
Do I need experience?
We train as a team and all levels are welcome to train with us. We encourage all our students to help develop other students, that way we get better as a whole.
What equipment will I need?
The beauty of training No GI Jiu Jitsu is you won't need a Kimono and can train in just basic shorts and a T Shirt. We use our bodies as our training tools. We simply recommend that you refrain from wearing watches, earrings, rings, bracelets as it is a full contact sport.
I heard BJJ is full of people who like to hurt each other, is this true?
In my experience, through BJJ, I have met some of the nicest people ever. I can't speak for all academies but we provide a fun, safe environment to train and take every effort to insure our students can enjoy learning this art injury free.
I'm not as young as I used to be, is it too late for me to start?
I know its a cliche to say "You're never too old!" but you really never are! Jiu jitsu is truly a martial art for everyone and there is a thriving community of senior practitioners. We tailor our teaching to the individual and it's a sport you can take at your own pace.
