BJJ Training Etiquette
Training at the Dojo
Try not to injure yourself or others when sparring. Sparring in the dojo is not the same as competition. Always be considerate of your sparring partner.
If you start to bleed, please stop training until you stop the bleeding. Training while bleeding is not allowed.
Please make an effort to listen to the class instructor accordingly.
Make sure you are smelling fresh and pleasant. You can take a quick shower if you had a long day. Make sure you wash your Gi and Belt regularly.
COVID / FLU and Other illness
Do not train if you think you have COVID, Flu, Staph or other illness. Please be considerate of your training partners.
Wear a rashguard or compression even if you are wearing a Gi.
(BJJ) is a martial art, combat sport, and a self defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo (which itself is derived from Japanese Jujutsu) in the early 20th century.
It teaches that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique – most notably by applying joint-locks and choke holds to defeat the other person. BJJ training can be used for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as “rolling”) and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition, in relation to progress and ascension through its ranking system.
