Tips for Joining a BJJ Gym for The 1st Time

Finding the right BJJ gym can seem like a daunting task for many newcomers who want to do Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

Recently I received a question from a former athlete asking this very question.

She says there are 3 Brazilian Jiujitsu gyms in her area and she is having trouble choosing the right one.

She says her goals are to challenge herself again after having multiple children and being able to defend herself is a plus.

In this video I describe some basic ways I would advise people to look for a BJJ gym.

The biggest factor though in my eyes is the community.

Because it’s that community aspect that is going to keep you coming in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for years and years.

We all know BJJ training is tough. And the connections to the awesome people inside your gym is what will keep you connected and continuing to train for years to come.

I also threw in a small warning and tips on avoiding illegitimate gyms. And I expressed the dangers of getting mixed up with a bad gym.

If you’re looking for a BJJ gym, I hope this helps you with finding a gym near you!
