About Our Classes
What To Expect At Your First Class
When you arrive for your first class, you’ll be greeted at the front desk with a smile. We’ll help you get oriented with the gym, and sign in. We ask that you arrive approximately 5 minutes early for class so we can show you around. When you begin class, you will be greeted by your coach and can ask any questions you might have before class begins.
Each class varies in the techniques taught but typically start with a round of jump rope followed by a round of shadow boxing and calisthenics as a warm up.
This is usually followed by 5 or 6 rounds of high intensity technical instruction utilizing the heavy bag and or partner pad work which will include a variety of techniques including kicks, punches, knees, elbow strikes, and clinch work.
We will then typically end Class with Strength + Conditioning Body Weight exercises. When classes have ended feel free to stretch out and ask us any questions regarding further training at EMA.
We hope you have a great work out and fall in love with the sport we love so much!
10th Planet Jiu Jitsu
We have a few different types of classes that you can experience through our 10th planet jiu jitsu program. We do classes pretty much the same structure every day. We start with “flow rolling” which is no submissions just moving from position to position for 15mins.
Then we do technique for 30 mins. Then we do real rolling with submission.
Some people choose not to roll on their first days but I always remind them that tapping out is the escape room every move ever invented so if they get uncomfortable, just tap.
