Leave your ego outside the mat.
We are all here for the purpose of learning and developing ourselves and our team. Together we are stronger.
Keep your hygiene impeccable
Cut your nails
Wash your gi after every class
Use a rashguard under your gi for better hygiene
Be on time
Every part of the training has a purpose, so be there from the beginning, in case you are late always greet the instructor before joining the class
BJJ is an art of details and finesse, small details make all the difference for the quality of your learning process. Repeat all the positions until you can understand all the details.
Always tap before the critical point and never go full on in a submission attempt. Our body and our training partners are the most valuable part of our journey. A good technique is tested by the absence of power, not the over usage of it.
Respect your mat space
Always be aware of your surroundings, there is nothing worse than injuring a training partner. If you are close to one another pair of students, stop and restart at another place.
Tie your belt
Keep your belt tied at all times, we are classy people.
Prepare to be challenged
Unless you were a hard core athlete in school, Jiu Jitsu will push your body harder and take it farther than you ever thought possible. This great sport will also challenge you mentally and emotionally. You will experience times of doubts, but life (and Jiu Jitsu) is about breaking past the doubt.
