Do I need to be in shape before I start BJJ?

This has to be one of the most commonly asked question I get from people who are new to Brazilian Jiu-jitsu.

Most commonly it stems from fear of the unknown. People often build a Brazilian Jiujitsu class up into something in their head. Then once they try it for the first time they realize it’s nothing like they expect.

I’ve spoken to many people who finally tried their first Brazilian Jiujitsu class and loved it. And many of them tell me that they wanted to train a long time ago. But didn’t because of fear of different things.

One of the fears that pops up a lot is not being in good enough shape.

But like many people will find. You can’t really get into the kind of shape you need to be in for BJJ until you start training BJJ.

So if you’re in the same boat as our friend Will. And you want to start BJJ training but you’re nervous about not being in good enough shape.

Don’t WAIT! Start training now.
