Etiquette, Dress code, & Gear
For all classes, we recommend removing all jewelry, as well as hair pins or clips made of metal or hard plastic. Good hygiene is essential to a safe training environment, so we ask you to arrive with finger and toe nails trimmed short. For hygienic reasons, walking off of the mats barefoot is strictly forbidden (we recommend bringing sandals!). When stepping on the mat for Jiu-Jitsu classes, greet the Professor immediately with a hand shake, and, should time permit before class begins, also greet your fellow students. Similarly, before leaving the mats, say goodbye to the Professor and any students who helped you with a handshake.

No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: Rashguard and board shorts, or T-shirt (covers arms and chest) and athletic shorts. Women may wear spats or Yoga pants. Tank tops, sports bras, and other clothing which doesn't cover the body and upper arms are not appropriate for jiu-jitsu classes. Mouthpiece recommended.
