Your Burning Questions Answered
No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study Brazilian Jiu Jitsu have no prior martial arts training.
Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well. Most practitioners bring a backpack or duffle bag to carry their gear in. We also recommend wearing sandals for when you step off the mat.
No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.
Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.
My child still has temper tantrums and I’m worried about how they’ll behave in school. Can studying martial arts help?
Yes, it can. We help children learn the importance of emotional control, respect for others and discipline. These are lessons that will help them in the classroom, too.
Yes. Even though studying martial arts is an individual pursuit, we teach kids to learn in a collaborative environment with an emphasis on sharing, cooperation, and teamwork.
My child zones out in class and misses important instructions. Can taking martial arts classes help them do a better job of focusing?
Yes. Part of martial arts training is teaching kids to be mindful of themselves and their surroundings. They must focus to succeed in class, and once they learn to do it, they’ll be able to do the same thing at school.
Yes. It’s common for students to require more than one attempt to earn a new belt. We teach them that trying is the most important thing – and that persistence pays off.
Respect is at the core of everything we do in the dojo. Kids who study martial arts must respect their instructors and fellow students, and we find that they learn to respect parents, teachers, caregivers, and siblings at the same time.
