FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

1. What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)?

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on ground fighting and submission grappling. It emphasizes leverage and technique to overcome larger and stronger opponents, making it suitable for practitioners of all ages and body types.

2. Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu suitable for beginners?

Absolutely! Our academy welcomes students of all skill levels, including complete beginners. Our experienced instructors provide structured classes that cater to both beginners and advanced practitioners.

3. What should I wear for my first class?

Wear comfortable athletic clothing, preferably a rash guard and grappling shorts or spats. If you don't have a BJJ gi (uniform), no worries – you can start with no-gi classes until you're ready to invest in one.

4. Do I need any prior martial arts experience to join?

No prior martial arts experience is necessary. Our classes are designed to accommodate individuals with varying levels of experience, from complete beginners to advanced practitioners.

5. How often should I attend classes to see progress?

Consistency is key in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We recommend attending classes at least 2 or more times a week to see steady progress. However, the frequency can be adjusted based on your personal schedule and goals.

6. Are there age restrictions for joining the academy?

Our academy is open to individuals of all ages. We offer specialized classes for kids, teens, and adults to ensure that the training is age-appropriate and enjoyable for everyone.

7. What is the difference between gi and no-gi classes?

Gi classes involve training with the traditional BJJ uniform (gi), while no-gi classes involve training without the gi, typically wearing rash guards and grappling shorts. Both offer unique challenges and skills, and many practitioners enjoy training in both formats.

8. Are there opportunities for competition?

Yes, for those interested in testing their skills, we encourage participation in local and regional competitions. However, competition is entirely optional, and many practitioners train solely for self-defense, fitness, and enjoyment.

9. How do I get started with a free trial class?

To get started, simply book your 1st class here: https://glbjjflint.com/schedule. Show up 5-10 minutes before the class that you choose and you can sign up for your 7 Day Free Trial right then.

10. How can I contact the academy for further inquiries?
