20 Things you need to know about training at NSBJJ.


1. Bow on and off the mats (Facing the Flags).


2. Face away from the flags when you tie your belt.


3. During open mat if higher rank asks you to roll, and you decline - it is frowned upon.


4. During an open mat you may ask a higher rank to roll, and they may decline - this is deemed OK.


5. If some one taps, taps the mat, foot or leg taps the mat, Yelps, or says tap, stop, or screams out. Stop immediately.


6. Position is more important than submission!


7. There is no talking while instruction is taking place!


8. If you need to leave the mat during class, ASK the Instructor. 


9. If you need to sit out and rest, ASK the Instructor.


10. If you are late, stand by the mat and wait for the instructor to call you into the class!


11. The purpose is to get better every single day, let your ego go, try out new moves, be creative, try to see the moves before they happen.


12. It's okay to lose, every one in Jiu-Jitsu loses, even the best in the World.


13. Do not mistake an Instructors kind manner for weakness. We do not need to roll hard when we are trying to help you learn, we may often put our self into bad positions and into submissions to help you learn. Please do not crank on the submissions. Tends to make us Instructors angry...


14. Ask questions, we at North Side love answering questions about what we are showing, ie where will it go, how can i defend this, etc...


15. Make it your goal to learn, come to as many classes as you can, the more you go.. the faster you will become better.


16. Competition will make you a lot better! Even if you lose, just the experience is invaluable to your growth in Jiu-Jitsu.


17. Your No-Gi game will improve if you train in the Gi. #TRUTH


18. White belts may use a straight ankle lock submission and the 50/50 position.


19. No leg reaping (bringing your outside leg past your opponents hip, and over the leg to put pressure on the knee).


20. Have Fun, that's what it's all about, do not be nervous or afraid, we are here to help you and make you better.
