  • What’s the differnce between Gi and No-Gi Jiu Jitsu?
    Gi jiu Jitsu is practiced in the kimono/gi, while no-gi is practiced in a rash guard and shorts. At Tapped Grapple Club we are exclusively no-gi only.
  • What should I bring to class?
    If you are new to jiu jitsu, you only need to bring a comfortable training shirt and shorts, a bottle of water and a good attitude. If you would like to shower at the academy after class, you should bring a towel as well.
  • Will I get hit in class?
    No. There are no strikes, kicks, or punches in jiu jitsu. And our goal is never to hurt one another on the mat. The beauty of jiu jitsu is that you can train near 100% without sustaining physical damage or injury. Our approach is to progress and grow as a group, which means we take care of each other on the mat. We do not tolerate members who do not observe our code of conduct on the mat.
  • Do I need to be in shape?
    Jiu Jitsu is physically demanding, but you can start at any fitness level. Regular jiu jitsu training will naturally get you in shape.
  • What will my first class be like?
    If you are new to jiu jitsu, your first class at the academy will focus on a basic introduction to jiu jitsu and submission grappling. After your introduction, you will be presented with an ecological approach to teaching BJJ and get a feel for what training is like at Tapped. If you already have have jiu jitsu experience, you are welcome to join class and participate in training on your first visit.
