Try to be at the Academy early so you can get a quick tour and get your loan uniform.

When you first walk in, go up to reception and see the friendly staff. If there is no one there, say hello to one of the other members and they will help you out.

We will show you around and answer any questions you may have and show you how to wear the uniform.

The class format:

Warm Up (5-10 minutes)

Classes always start with a warm up, that will get your body ready to move. Most classes will use some of the movements below. The movements are selected as they get your joints ready to move and some are important for “prehab”.

Technique (20-40 minutes)

This is the main section of the class. Classes will  generally have one or two techniques taught per class, each technique is broken down into  two to three sections to make it easier to learn the details. Once you get the rough idea of the technique, you will then practice it against increasing levels of resistance. This type of training is commonly known as Drilling.

Rolling (15-30 minutes)

In Jiu Jitsu, arguably the best part of the class is the free sparring at the end, known as rolling. Here you get to practise your techniques against a fully resitenant training partner.

There are many variations of rolling from light to 100%, or flow or positional sparring. As a beginner you are not expected to know how to roll, but your training partners will guide you along the way. Don’t be afraid to ask questions!

Class usually has 3-6 rounds of rolling, if you do need to rest, sit against a wall, with your legs tucked under you.

Some warm up videos

Hip Escapes

Hip escapes are arguably the most important movement in Jiu Jitsu. You will need to master this movement to be able to practice Jiu Jitsu effectively. Like everything in Jiu Jitsu, this is but one variation of hip escape you will need to learn.

Hip Escape to knees

Hip escapes to knees are a good option when your guard is about to be passed. The idea is to create space to turtle and then be able to sit back into guard again.
