Frequently Asked Questions

Can I bring a snack?

Class are a hour long but can be intense somedays.  Sports drinks and water are allowed but food is not recommended until after training.  Generally speaking, if you are going to eat before class make sure its something light.

How do I bring up concerns about training partners?

Any concerns about other students can be brought up to your instructor of the day or sent via email to pellabjj@gmail.com.  At Pella BJJ we see ourselves as extended family, all issues will be addressed seriously and dealt with swiftly.  Make sure to check out the Code of Conduct.

Do I need to have previous knowledge in self defense?

The beginner and intro classes are designed for people with no background in Martial Arts.  Everything you will be taught is designed to help you expediate your learning process.

What happens if I am late to class?

Punctuality is important not only for training but for the real world.  Other people are paying for these classes and when people come in late it can be distracting. If you are running late you are still welcome to come train, just make sure to be respectful of the class in session.
