What will I do first?
Make sure you don’t step on the mats with your shoes on!
Introduce yourself to the instructor and be sure they know you are new.
Read and sign the Health and Information packet, this will take around 5-10 minutes.  This must be done before you step on the mats.

Stepping on the mats:
Make sure you don’t step on the mats with your shoes on!
Please briefly bow before stepping on the mats, it does not need to be anything too formal.
Say hello to everyone who is already on the mat, introduce yourself to new people.
Start stretching!  Focus on your hips, lower back, and legs.
Before and After class, everyone will line up by rank, take your place at the back of the line so you can see what everyone else does.

What to Expect:

Before class the mats are open for stretching and some light rolling

The first portion of class will be functional warmups, don't worry if you don't know them yet, everyone feels lost at first.

After warmups class will focus on a standing technique, this could be standing self defense, judo, a wrestling take-down, or even basic striking. 

After our standing techniques, class will move to the ground where jiu-jitsu really shines.  Techniques will start simple and will chain together into the next technique and get more complex as class goes on.

After ground techniques, we may have some functional drilling where you work the techniques from class with controlled resistance.

We end class by lining up by rank, if you are new, you will be at the far left end of the line.
