Classes FAQ

How many classes do I need to attend?

ESJJ uses an unlimited class’s model. Meaning for one-fee students can attend, as many classes as they wish. The more classes you attend the faster you will see the results of your training, members of the academy are free to train as often or as they wish.

Which classes are best for a beginner?

All classes are aimed at both experienced and beginner BJJ practitioners

Do I need a Gi to come to the BJJ classes

Eventually you will want a Gi to be able to learn and practices all the techniques. However, to start we have loan Gis we can give you for your first few sessions.

What is Open Mat?

At the open mat, session students are invited to spar, learn and collaborate with one and other. Instructors are present but the class is a free flowing relaxed environment.

What is The Hour of Power?

The Hour of Power is our weekly high intensity BJJ training session. Most other weekly classes focus heavily on the learning and mastery of techniques. In the Hour of Power we focus on drilling, sparring and rolling BJJ techniques in a fast paced and active class style. What better way to go into the weekend than with an Hour of Power!
