What should I wear to Jiu Jitsu?
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.
Do you need shoes for Jiu Jitsu?
We go barefoot on the mats and training Brazilian Jiu jitsu is a barefoot pursuit, but make sure to wear shoes off them. DON’T walk off the mats in your bare feet. A pair of €2 flip flops or even your shoes beside the mat are just fine.
Can you wear knee pads in Jiu Jitsu?
Almost all sports where excessive movement is required pose a health risk for your joints. The same is with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All grappling disciplines take a toll on body joints, and that is why quality equipment – specifically protective knee pads – can help to prevent injuries.
Do you need a cup for Jiu Jitsu?
Wearing a cup during jiu jitsu competitions is illegal. This is principally because that bit of hard plastic can cause some serious damage to a person’s elbow or spinal column with enough applied pressure.
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 much is jiu jitsu a month?
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.
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.
Is jiu jitsu hard?
Jiu Jitsu is extremely difficult to learn. I know some people show up to class, roll a few times, then leave. However, a lot of us become serious students of this gentle but destructive art. A second way training something as difficult as Jiu Jitsu makes the rest of our lives better is in regard to our egos.
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.
Is Jiu Jitsu good for self defense?
Jiu Jitsu is a true hybrid of techniques and incorporates grips, strangles and joint locks. It also teaches you how to control your centre of gravity against that of any attacker. So, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is good for self defence but it’s not designed exclusively for self defence.
What is a beginner Jiu Jitsu class like?
Most classes start with a group warm-up, such as running laps and doing push-ups, followed by solo drills like forward and backward breakfalls and shrimping. Those last three moves will probably be new to you, so just watch what everyone else is doing and try to copy them.
