What to expect from your Free Month Trial

At AFG BJJ, we are firm believers that no one should feel pressured into starting a martial art, especially a full contact style of combat training. This is why we offer a One Month Free Trial to anyone who is interested in joining as a member. You are not obligated to commit to any contracts or pay for anything, just sign the waiver and your Free Month begins!

A typical class begins with light calisthenics and jiu-jitsu inspired movements. Coach Ahmad will focus on one main position per month and go into many variations and connected techniques throughout each class. About half of the class time is spent drilling the technique with training partners, under the close observation of Coach Ahmad. After the technique segment of the class, intermediate and advanced members will practice the techniques in an open-sparring environment. Beginners will also spar but at a moderate pace, in a controlled with specific conditions set in place. This ensures everyone’s sparring session is 100% safe and beginners are actually learning rather than just recklessly fighting with brute force.
