Will I get hurt?
There is a certain amount of risk involved with training in Jiu Jitsu. We take extreme care in teaching technique above agression.

All students will know how to stop any situation in which they feel uncomfortable or in danger.

Instructors monitor practice to ensure everyone is practicing in the safest manner possible.


Is the gym clean or is this one of those "underground garage type" establishments?
This is a clean and uncluttered environment in which eveyone is encouraged to keep it that way.


Do I have to compete in grappling tournaments?
Although competition is encouraged, you do not have to compete.


Do you encourage inter school competitions?
There will be times when we will get invitations to compete with a particular school. You do not have to compete if you don't want to.


How long will it take for me to get promoted?
There will be tests for belts in which you will have plenty of time to prepare for. Your instructor and classmates will help prepare you.

If for some reason, that time frame doesn't work for you, let your instructor know right away.


Will I get a free gi with my membership?
Unfortunately, we can't offer a free gi with your membership, but you will find that our gi prices are very reasonable.
