I am an absolute beginner with no experience, can I do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Absolutely! Our classes are designed with the complete beginner in mind. Starting you out with a no pressure environment and a progressive curriculum, allows you to grow exponentially with no prior experience.
Do I need any special equipment or gear before I start?
You do not need any special equipment to get started. Just show up with a positive attitude and a will to learn. We have all of the gear you need to start out. When the time comes for you to purchase a uniform, we can help you out with that.
What is a typical class like?
We follow a relaxed but structured class. First, we start with a subtle warm up session to get everything moving smoothly. Next, we go over the specific technique prepared for that lesson. Finally, we practice those techniques with a partner. A no pressure environment is key to your learning progress.
Will Jiu Jitsu and kickboxing classes help me get into shape?
Both kickboxing and Jiu Jitsu are two of the best exercises I have ever experienced. When training on a regular basis, you will receive a great amount of both cardio and anabolic training. All of this while learning specific skills to defend yourself and have a great time doing it!
What are the age limits to participate in your classes?
We currently have students attending regular classes from ages 5 all the way up to 60 + years old. I have seen and taught people of all ages and genders, even students well into their 70s. You are only limited by your own will.
Can I try a class before signing up?
Absolutely! We strongly encourage all new inquiring people to take advantage of our free two week trial membership. During that time, you can attend any and all of our classes with no obligation at all. So come in and give it a try, you have literally nothing to lose.
How often do most people attend classes?
Average attendance is around 3 times a week. You have the option to attend as little as one day a week or you can take advantage of our full schedule which provides classes 6 days a week. It’s important to us that we provide classes that work around your busy schedule.
Is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu good for children?
We take a lot of pride in the children’s classes that we provide here at Reflex Jiu Jitsu. In our opinion, nothing can be better for your kids than an activity where they can have fun, stay active, and learn amazing life skills. Not to mention, the ability to defend themselves in the event of extreme bullying.
Will Jiu Jitsu help me to defend myself as a woman?
Yes, yes, and yes! Gracie Brazilian Jiu Jitsu was developed specifically for smaller people to defend themselves against larger and stronger attackers. Also, the positions and situations addressed by Jiu Jitsu, are the same exact positions and situations faced in attacks against women. There is no better martial art for women’s self defense. Hands down.
