Teaching the prospective student the essential moves and techniques they will need is the primary purpose of the introductory lesson. An effective introductory lesson will put the student at ease by providing an outline of the regular classes and letting them ask questions pertaining to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

The Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor should do everything they can to build a bond with the individual taking the intro and give them all the answers to their questions in order for them to make educated decision. The prospective student should have a good understanding of the Jiu Jitsu style offered at the academy and the method of instruction they will receive if they decide to join the school.

The Jiu Jitsu introductory class gives the instructor the change to gauge the physical abilities of the student, the individuals learning style (how they process information), and what are the goals they hope to achieve. This all needs to be taken into consideration to have a successful introductory class.

A good Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Intro class will follow a structure that has the prospective student getting a workout, learning something new, and having a good time. These 3 factors are an essential element to making sure the individual get the best training possible.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Introductory Class Structure

Any form of physical activity should begin with a proper warm up A proper warm up safely prepares the body for the increased demands of exercise and reduces your risk of injury. Perform light calisthenics for 3 to 5 minutes using a routine of various exercises that get the whole body involved.

Show and practice a set of basic techniques that the person will be able to grasp. The best way to approach this is to put the student in each of the fundamental positions and explain the techniques and details as you go. Let the individual drill a series of moves that guide them into other positions or techniques. A good example would be: passing the closed guard, secure side control, and move to mount position.

It is required that the student understand how to Tap from a submission before the introductory class is finished. It is crucial for the student to understand that at some point they will Tap and that it is part of the process to getting better. Go over the kinds of submission techniques taught in the academy and at what levels they can be applied.

Do not do any live training in the introductory class, but it is necessary to explain to them why it is implemented in the training. Explain the difference of position rolling compared to starting a roll from the knees and the benefits of each.

End the intro with some light stretching, followed by a quick recap of the class. You want to confirm all the persons questions are answered and that they are ready to jump into the fundamental classes. The primary goal of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lesson is to make the learning process enjoyable right from the start.
