I would like to welcome you to Tennessee Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy. Even if your are just reading this Blog and not a student welcome. Here is some info that will help you out with your transition to our academy or any academy. As a new student of BJJ remember BJJ is more than Martial Arts, it is a brotherhood, and will be part of who you are as a person. Now you have signed up and are ready to go. Below are some helpful hints that will make your transition smooth and enjoyable.

-try to make it at least twice every week! More is better but you want this to become a habit.

-if for some reason you cannot make it that week force yourself to be there the following week. (No excuses)

-make friends! Seriously do not sit in the corner and not talk to people. You will find yourself as a third wheel quick.

-Ask questions, you will have plenty trust me. No question is a dumb question, so just ask your peers or an instructor.

-Keep in touch with the gym thru social media. (facebook, twitter, gym website, newsletters, etc).

-The biggest thing is have fun you are going to be horrible for a while embrace the suck and know soon it will all make sense.
