Make sure your finger and toe nails are well-groomed. If you have long hair, you’ll want to put it up in a ponytail or bun during class. You should also remove any piercings to prevent injuries.
You’ll probably want to show up a couple minutes early to introduce yourself to the instructor and check out the school (if you haven’t visited already). You’ll often need to sign a waiver.
Before class starts, you’ll have a chance to get dressed and stretch out on the mats. Be sure to get everything ready before class starts so you don’t have to miss anything.
Devine Jiu-Jitsu is ran very well by trained and professional instructors. Throughout your time with this group, you will learn you will need to not only protect yourself in the real world, but also in an athletic and competitive world. For me its been a journey that has been nothing I've ever done before and slowly changed my outlook and mentality in my everyday life. You become more empathetic and not to judge a book by its cover. I would highly recommend Instructor Derek to anyone looking for a positive transformation in life.
