First Jiu-jitsu Class: Welcoming Atmosphere

As you step into our gym, you'll immediately feel the warmth of our community. Our instructors and fellow practitioners are dedicated to creating a welcoming environment where everyone, regardless of skill level, feels valued and supported.

Introduction and Orientation

Before diving into the techniques, your instructor will start the class with a brief introduction and orientation. This is an opportunity for you to meet your instructor, fellow classmates, and get acquainted with the layout of the gym.


Jiu-jitsu is a physically demanding martial art, so expect to begin with a thorough warm-up session. This may involve a combination of stretching, cardio exercises, and bodyweight drills to prepare your body for the techniques ahead.

Fundamental Techniques

Once warmed up, your instructor will guide you through fundamental Jiu-jitsu techniques. These may include basic positions, submissions, escapes, and transitions. Don't worry if you're unfamiliar with the terminology or movements – your instructor will provide clear demonstrations and explanations to ensure everyone can follow along comfortably.

Partner Drills

A significant aspect of Jiu-jitsu training involves practicing techniques with a partner. You'll pair up with a fellow classmate to perform drills, allowing you to apply the techniques you've learned in a controlled setting. This hands-on experience is invaluable for understanding the principles of leverage, timing, and control.

Cool Down and Reflection

After an intense session of learning and drilling, your class will conclude with a cool-down period. This is an opportunity to stretch, relax, and reflect on your experience. Feel free to ask questions, seek clarification on techniques, or discuss any concerns with your instructor or classmates.

Conclusion: Your Jiu-jitsu Journey Begins
