10 Jiu Jitsu Gym Etiquette Rules To Learn Before You Become A Blue Belt in Nashville

Updated: May 9

Hey there, it's Alex from Liberdade Jiu Jitsu in Nashville, TN! Let's chat about some academy etiquette because, you know, nobody wants to be "that guy" on the mats, right? So buckle up, because we're about to dive into the hilarious world of unspoken rules and awkward situations at the academy!

1. Keep that gi clean, folks! Seriously, nobody wants to roll with a stinky gi. It's like rolling with a fuk bomb, and trust me, that's not cool.

2. Trim those talons, my friends! We're doing jiu jitsu, not trying out for the Wolverine cosplay team.

3. Shoes in the academy, people! And no, that doesn't mean barefoot in the bathroom. Let's keep those feet clean and germ-free, shall we?

4. Time to show some love to your professor and all the black belts on the mat. Think of it as spreading good vibes and positive energy, one handshake at a time.

5. Running late? It happens. Just sneak in quietly, like a ninja, and don't forget to say hi before you jump into action.

6. Drilling time! But remember, we're not trying to win the World's Strongest Human competition here. Ease up and focus on technique, not muscle.

7. Wanna roll? Hold your horses, lower belts! Let the higher belts come to you like jiu jitsu royalty. It's all about that respect, baby.

8. Space, the final frontier. Give those higher belts some room to work their magic during sparring. Trust me, nobody wants to be the guy who ruins their flow.

9. Line up, line up! And no, we're not forming a conga line. We're organizing ourselves by belt levels because, hey, it's just easier that way. So find your spot next to your crew and let's keep the chaos to a minimum, shall we?

10. Stick to the classics when it comes to gi colors. Think white, blue, and black. Oh, and if you're visiting another academy, go with the white gi. It's like the universal sign of respect.

So there you have it, folks! Follow these tips, and you'll be the jiu jitsu rockstar of the academy in no time. And hey, if you've got any more hilarious rules to add to the list, hit me up! Let's keep the laughs rolling on the mats!
