How do you know if a Jiu Jitsu is real?
If the instructor is a first degree black belt or above, you may also be able to find her on sites like Rate My BJJ Instructor or BJJ Tree. If she shows up on either of these two sites, she’s probably legit. And if she shows up on BJJ Heroes, the instructor is definitely legit.
What should I know before joining BJJ gym?
Try to arrive at the gym about 15 minutes before the class starts. This will give you time to meet the instructor, borrow a gi, get changed, and learn any important gym rules. Some gyms are quite formal and expect students to bow before they get onto the mats. Some are more relaxed and don’t follow those customs.
What do you wear to Jiu Jitsu classes?
Board shorts and a t-shirt or a surf rash guard will usually be ok. However, if you decide that BJJ is something you want to do and you decide to keep training then you will need to buy a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi. It’s important not to try and avoid wearing anything with pockets, belt loops or baggy fabrics.

How much does it cost to learn BJJ?
Regardless of what you choose, you should expect to pay between $100 and $200 per month for jiu jitsu classes. There will of course be exceptions to that pricing, but for the most part it is rare to find a school who charges less than $100 per month or more than $200 a month for just jiu jitsu.
Are there BJJ Mcdojos?
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has not been spared by this. What exactly is a McDojo you may ask? It’s basically a martial arts school or franchise of schools that have shady and poor instructors, that are only focused on making money and that make false claims.
Is 10th Planet BJJ legit?
10th Planet is very good jiu jitsu/grappling. Their warm up sessions are more relevant to the art of BJJ rolling than a couple of BJJ warm ups in general. As for the people bashing 10th Planet, I dont think there are so many bjj schools bashing them. A minorty of them probably.
How good is a Jiu Jitsu black belt?
As with many other martial arts, the black belt is the highest common belt within Brazilian jiu-jitsu, denoting an expert level of technical and practical skill. Estimates of the time required to achieve the rank vary, but all holders of this rank have thousands of hours of experience.
Is 25 too old for Jiu-Jitsu?
The answer is simple: “NO!” We have students over 40 years old on the mat training with us, “ You are NOT too old to start training Jiu-jitsu, but you will get way older when you do NOT train jiu-jitsu”. One of our students Louis Choi maintains a high level of fitness through Jiu-jitsu after the age of 50.
How many times a week should I train Jiu-Jitsu?
If you are a beginner or a “casual” Jiu-Jitsu practitioner, aim for two to three days a week. Training around two days a week is a good starting point when you’re just starting Jiu-Jitsu. You get enough time on the mats to learn and work on your technique while not getting burned out or overtrained.
Can you start Jiu-Jitsu at 50?
You can definitely start your Jiu-Jitsu journey in your 40s, 50s and even 60s, but that doesn’t mean it’ll be as easy as starting it at 18. If you plan on taking up BJJ, you’ll need to do your best to get adequate sleep. By now you should know what a good night’s rest feels like. Try and get that as much as possible.
