Hey everyone! Greg Kalteich Drysdale Fight For Us team Zenith Jiu-Jitsu. I wanted to talk to you guys real quick if you’ve never done Brazilian jiu-jitsu and you’re thinking about coming in to check out the gym try a class. It’s a little intimidating, it’s a little uneasy when you walk in the doors. You’re not sure what to expect. So we thought we’d give you a little insight as to what’s gonna happen and how it’s gonna be first when you come in.
You should if you don’t have a gi if you’ve never trained before you should come into like board shorts, swim shorts, and a t-shirt or tank top. Nothing with pockets or zippers, you’ll come in you’ll meet us at the front desk. You’ll sign a waiver when class starts to begin. You’ll see everybody will line up in one area we’ll direct you where you’re supposed to line up. After that we will get class started everyone bow, the instructor bows and then all students bow at the same time and we’ll start a series of warm-ups. Sometimes we jog in a circle, sometimes we go right into maneuvers and maneuvers are gonna consist of things that you’ve seen before, and somethings you probably haven’t but we do things like forwards rolls backward rolls cartwheels and things like that. Some of the things you probably haven’t done are shrimping or hip escapes but we’ll go over all that in another video and after that warm-up period 15-20 minutes we do technical instruction where we all sit down I’ll show a technique we’ll go over it and then we’ll pair up or gather up in groups and partners and we’ll work that technique of the night and try to learn it.
Then there’ll be another quick break and then we’ll train for anywhere from 45 minutes to a half hour that night and that means sparring hands on wrestling submissions and things like that. After that we finished class the same way we started we all lined up bow in bow out and that’s pretty much it if you look at our next videos that will be posting soon you’ll see us demonstrate some of those maneuvers so that you’re not so freaked out and come in you know what to expect when you come in so hopefully we see you come into class and we’ll see you on the mats!
