Code of Conduct

Fifteen things that all students training at our academy should know:

  1. Wear clean training gear to every class, no exceptions.
  2. Arrive 10-15 minutes early.
  3. Minimize scents on body and breath.
  4. Stay focused on the lesson and stay positive about your progress.
  5. Use the review period to recall as much as you can about your previous lessons.
  6. Have an extra gi ready if you are going to train twice in one day.
  7. Don’t worry about your testing date, play the long game and don’t expect mastery in one day.  It takes time!
  8. Allow maximum repetition of the correct movements with your partner.  If your partner has mastered it, resist with a little more resistance, if your partner can over come your resistance with technique, he/she has it!
  9. Recite the steps of the technique aloud, it allows for quicker, more thorough learning.
  10. Always stand up in base!
  11. Keep a balance in your life, diet, sleep, and recovery time.
  12. Spar without ego.
  13. Shower immediately after training.
  14. Stay hydrated.
  15. Use Gracie University, it’s the best resource for Gracie Jiu Jitsu in the world.
