Things to Know Before Your First Day of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Posted by Sarah Lobban on 4/26/2018 2:00:00 PM

Part of the First Day of Martial Arts Class series.

This first set of martial art advice is courtesy of Content Director Mikey Dillard. He’s trained in multiple martial arts, and is a black belt in taekwondo, but one of his favorites is Brazilian jiu-jitsu. He started training in college, and kept it up to this day. He’s currently a purple belt (BJJ belt ranking goes white -> blue -> purple -> brown -> black), and, although he describes training as “one of the hardest things I’ve ever done,” he is really enthusiastic about training, and was happy to answer a few questions!

1. What do I need to bring to Brazilian jiu-jitsu?

 

2. What can I expect to have happen during Brazilian jiu-jitsu class?

 

3. What are some misconceptions about Brazilian jiu-jitsu?

 

4. What’s basic etiquette for Brazilian jiu-jitsu?

 

5. What’s the best piece of advice you can give to someone who wants to take Brazilian jiu-jitsu?

 

6. What advice would you give to parents who are considering Brazilian jiu-jitsu for their child?
