Everyone progresses at a different rate. Getting your blue belt all depends on how dedicated you are, and how often you train. Generally, it would take about a year to receive a blue belt if you trained three times per week.

Absolutely not! It is up to whether you would like to challenge yourself in a competition or not. As a matter a fact, most Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioners do not compete. It is completely up to you.

Anyone can do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Of course being in good cardiovascular shape will help you with your training, but sometimes the training itself can help get into good cardiovascular shape. I have seen young and old, big and small, strong and frail, and all combinations of these involved in the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. It’s never too late to start.

There is nothing wrong with training at either of those but at DM Jiu Jitsu Academy you will receive training from someone who has seen the Machado’s version as well as the Gracie’s version of Jiu Jitsu. Here we teach what we feel are the best and most effective techniques from both, and from numerous other instructors that we have trained with. We also add wrestling into our Jiu Jitsu making it well rounded. On top of all that, the prices are very reasonable!

Please bring a hand towel and make sure to shower and clip those finger nails. As far as what to wear, wear a pair of durable shorts or sweats and a t-shirt if you do not yet have a kimono (Gi). Eventually though you will need one. We do have a sponsor who provides us with quality kimonos at a very reasonable price.

Absolutely not! At DM Jiu-Jitsu Academy we take pride in having quality Jiu Jitsu practitioners and instructors who will help you rather then hurt you. You will undoubtedly be stuck in positions that are tough to escape and will most likely not do extremely well in the beginning, but that is to be expected if you are new to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. All of our students here have left there ego’s elsewhere and have nothing to prove to each other or you while in the class. It is a safe training environment.

Yes, the techniques of Jiu Jitsu are superior if you have the right person to drive them.

Sport Jiu Jitsu teaches the importance of positions by placing point values on them. It is safe and benefits both the average person and those interested in competing in BJJ or MMA tournaments
