What would a first free class be like?

Class starts with a light stretch and warm up. A lesson and concept is taught with very helpful details that make it easy for anyone to understand. We then pair up and practice the techniques. New students are paired up with more experienced students to help them along. In the White Belt Beginner Classes new students only drill the techniques until they're comfortable enough to spar.

Most people are surprised by how friendly and welcoming everyone is at PJJ, making your first class an enjoyable experience.
