How to Enroll
What to Expect-Your First Class
We are here to make you feel at home. From the first time you visit the Academy you will notice our atmosphere is a little different. Often times Jiu Jitsu schools are comprised of “tough” guys that are more into training themselves then helping you, the student, begin a journey of a life time. At the Robson Moura Academy you will know instantly you are the focus. Robson is a 7 time world champion. He already knows how good he is and he will not try and imposes upon you anything other then his willingness to be your teacher. You do not care how many times he was won the world championship. You care about how much he cares about you. Robson is here to help!
Instructors are also available for your private lesson needs. From time to time several assistant instructors will run class. Robson is still an active competitor. He competes in all the major tournaments throughout the year. He also is in demand for seminars around the globe. He has hand picked a small dedicated group of very capable instructors that will show you all the dedication he shows.
At the Academy you can visit, watch a class, meet the teacher and ask questions before ever getting on the mat. We hope you choose to get on the mat your first visit but first and for most you need to understand our commitment to you!
What to Wear for Your First Class
There is no need for a BJJ gi (the heavy uniform we were to train in) your first lesson will be no-gi. You will be giving a brand new Official Robson Moura Academy gi upon enrolling. Just wear some long shorts and t-shirt.
What to do in your first class
After warm-ups, you and your ambassador will go to your own section of the mats to start learning.
Please ensure your finger and toe nails are well-groomed. You should also remove any jewelry prior to arrival.
Depending on your experience, you might not spar in your first class. Don’t worry though, you will be rolling soon enough. Once you start sparring it’s important that you follow the basic rules:
* No striking, punching or kicking
* No eye gouging or hair pulling
* No twisting or grabbing fingers
* No slamming (picking someone up and dropping them)
* No heel hooks (twisting the foot or knee)
* No neck cranks
