Welcome to Roll Jiu Jitsu Academy, here are a few things that you need to know before your first class. If you still have questions, give us a call at 604-988-8819, we are happy to help.
When you arrive for your first class, come 15-30 minutes early to check in with the staff at the front desk. You will be provided with a loaner white gi (the traditional uniform). We only wear white gis in our studio and you are welcome to wear a gi from a different gym until you become a member of Roll. Once you begin to roll regularly with us you will be required to purchase a Roll Jiu Jitsu Academy gi.
Each class is 1 hour in length. At your first class you will be taught some basic movements before joining the class. Our Fundamentals class is made up of all different levels; don’t be intimidated, we were all beginners at some point.
On your first day try to come 15-30 minutes early to check in with the front desk staff. You will be given a loaner white gi (the traditional uniform), that you can use until you begin rolling with us on a regular basis. Once children start their membership with us, they will be required to buy a Roll Jiu Jitsu Academy gi, which we sell out of our gym.
At their first class, the instructor will teach the new children basic skills and movements that will help them to participate in the larger class right away. There are lots of different skill levels in each class, and techniques can be adapted to fit the child’s learning.
We want all of our new visitors to feel welcome and comfortable and so parents are welcome to stay and watch for the first class. Our goal is to make both parents and children feel at home right away.
Because we have found that students perform better when the academy is quiet and they are less self-conscious without an audience, we do not allow spectators for class. Once per month we arrange "family week" when families are welcome to come and watch.
Several of our classes are live streamed through our App.
