Opening Day

It’s been a crazy hectic seven weeks, but the time has come! Outside of a few minor details, all the demolition, construction, and interior decorating is finally done. The walls are painted, and the mats are down. So, let’s train!

If you’re an existing student of Cassio’s, we welcome your presence on the mats. Help bring in the BJJ energy to our new location. Cassio will be teaching two day classes: Tuesday & Thursday, 11:00 – 12:30, as well as three nights: Monday, 7:15 – 8:30, and Wednesday & Friday, 6:00 – 7:15. Here’s a link to a PDF of the June 2017 Class schedule.

Everybody is also invited to our Open House this coming Saturday, June17th. Cassio will be teaching a class from 10:00-12:00, which will be followed with a little camaraderie and FOOD. If anybody is interested in bringing a little something to share, it would be great. We’ll have all the necessary hardware, (plates, napkins, utensils, coolers & ice) Please contact Aimee, who’s helping coordinate the food via the Werneck BJJ group on Facebook.

If you’re a new student interested in getting started, come on in for a free trial. You can attend a couple classes without obligation, and see if our program is the right fit for you and/or your family. Find a class time that works for you on the June 2017 Class schedule, and show up 10-15 minutes early so we can get you signed in for your free trial classes. Or you can call 771-0525 or email ahead if you’d like to schedule a time to get more information.

If this is your first time, here’s a few things to help you know what to expect.

  1. Wear comfortable workout clothing. A t-shirt and shorts work just fine, while some might prefer longer pants. We have changing rooms for your convenience.
  2. Bring a pair of shoes you can easily slip on/off. Flip flops work perfectly. We have a strict No Shoes On The Mat, No Bare Feet Off The Mat policy. This is to keep the mat you will be training on as clean and hygienic as possible.
  3. Come prepared to work hard, learn some cool stuff, and have a great time!

Adults are more than welcome to attend any of the adult classes on the June 2017 Class schedule. If this is your first time doing martial arts, or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu specifically, you might consider starting with our Level 1 class. This class is like BJJ 101. It is an introduction to the fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, designed to help you build an understanding of the basics, while also improving your strength and conditioning.

Both Cassio and Darren love what they do, and want to do everything they can to make your experience in our program an enjoyable, rewarding one. Each has been teaching martial arts for over two decades. They’ve worked with people of all ages, abilities, and fitness levels. They’re also parents and spouses. They understand the challenges of scheduling work, school, and play, while trying to provide one’s children with enriching life experiences. They see great value in what they teach, have seen it positively transform 1000’s of students’ lives, and wish to share it’s great many benefits with you and your family. All of us at Werneck Family Jiu Jitsu hope that you will come to embrace the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle.
