First Time Students
We love having new students at the Academy, whether you have prior training experience or are brand new to training. Below are answers to Frequently Asked Questions often hear about the Academy.
What should I wear to class?
In general, it is best to bring a pair of shorts and a t-shirt for your first class. Anything you don’t mind getting a little sweaty, because we will make you sweat! For the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes, if you own a Kimono or Gi please bring it. If not, we have spares you can use. For sumission grappling classes you only needs shorts and a t-shirt.
What equipment do I need?
For all classes we recommend a mouthpiece and groin protection. For the Muay Thai and MMA classes, we have spare boxing gloves, shin pads and 4 oz gloves but we recommend bringing your own if you have it. We also have pads you can borrow. For the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes we have spare uniforms you may use if you do own one.
I have no prior experience, are there classes specifically for beginners?
Yes, we have classes designed specifically for people with no prior experience. Our Fundamentals Programs are 8 weeks long with 2 classes per week; one for Grappling and one for Striking. Take one or both programs. Visit our Fundamentals Programs page for more information. We also offer a Youth Beginners Grappling class for children new to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Is there a Trial Membership?
We have multiple types of Trial Memberships. For new students we offer our Fundamentals Programs which are 8 weeks long with 2 classes per week. For more experienced students looking for a new place to train, we offer a $99 Trial Membership for 1 month of classes. There is no commitment beyond that 30 days and we allow you to train as many of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai classes as you wish.
How much is a Membership at the Academy?
Membership costs can vary widely depending on a variety of choices like which programs you wish to take, how many days per week you wish to train, how long your membership is, etc. In general, the pricing ranges for Adult and Youth programs anywhere from $99/month for one day a week of training a single class to $225/month for complete unlimited training. We offer a Heroes Discount for Military and Law Enforcement personnel as well as for higher ranking BJJ/Judo belts or amateur and professional Muay Thai/MMA fighters. We can usually find the right package for everyone to meet their goals.
How does the Yamasaki Academy Groupon work?
If you are a beginning adult student and purchased a Groupon for Yamasaki Academy we will apply it to the Fundamentals program(s) of your choice which allows you to complete the entire program for a much lower rate. We will need the remaining balance for the Fundamentals program, however, so please see a Staff Member when you arrive for your first class. Experienced adult students can use the Groupon for any of the All Levels classes for Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. At the end of the Groupon trial we will auto-enroll you as a 1 Class/Week Member with the Academy. You will have the option to increase the number of classes per week at any time. Should you choose to not wish to continue training with the Academy please inform us before the Groupon Trial expires.
The Yamasaki Academy Groupon can be used for any of the Youth Programs, including the Academy Kids program.
