Frequently Asked Question

What are the basics every BJJ beginner should know?

As a beginner in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), there are a few basics you should be aware of. These include understanding the fundamental positions like Guard, Mount, and Side Control; knowing the basic BJJ techniques such as sweeps, escapes, and submissions; having a good grasp of BJJ rules and etiquette; and being aware of BJJ’s fitness and flexibility requirements. At Beginner BJJ, we provide resources to help you grasp these basics and start your BJJ journey on a solid footing.

How should I choose my first BJJ Gi?

Choosing your first BJJ Gi can seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be. The Gi’s size, material, weave, and durability are key factors to consider. Your Gi should be comfortable, allow free movement, and withstand the rigours of training. Check out our comprehensive Gear Guide for detailed advice and recommendations on selecting your first Gi.

What can I expect in my first BJJ class?

Your first BJJ class is an exciting milestone. Generally, a class starts with a warm-up, followed by instruction on specific techniques. Then, you’ll usually have an opportunity to drill these techniques with a partner. Most classes end with a ‘rolling’ session, a form of sparring in BJJ. Remember, everyone was a beginner once, so don’t be afraid to ask questions and make mistakes.

How can BJJ improve my fitness level?

BJJ is a comprehensive workout that improves strength, flexibility, endurance, and mental toughness. The dynamic movements in BJJ engage multiple muscle groups, improving overall fitness, increasing muscle tone, and better cardiovascular health. Plus, it’s an exciting way to keep fit, as each role presents new challenges to overcome.

What's the best way to improve my BJJ skills quickly?

Consistent training is vital to improving your BJJ skills. Regular practice helps reinforce techniques and build muscle memory. Supplement your training with resources like instructional videos, books, and our expert guides at Beginner BJJ. Also, remember the importance of rest and recovery in your training regimen. Remember, BJJ is a journey, not a race.
