How’s your hygiene at Hart BJJ, Kickboxing and MMA?

How’s your hygiene at Hart BJJ, Boxing and MMA?

We at Hart Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and MMA are dedicated to providing you with a clean training environment. We need your help to do so. Please familiarize yourself with the following tips to keep yourself and our facility safe and sanitary.

Prior to training…

Do not train if you have a virus,  infection or fungus.

Do not shave just prior to training as this leaves one vulnerable to skin infections.

Be sure your finger and toe nails are trimmed and clean.

Freshen your breath and your body.

Sanitize your hands.

Wear laundered clothing and Gi’s to training.

Seal or cover your broken skin. Do not train with an open wound.

Wear a rash guard, even underneath the Gi.

Wear sandals or other footwear when off the mat.

ALWAYS wear shoes in the restroom.

Alert an instructor if there is blood on the mat so it can be properly sanitized.

Hit the showers as soon as possible. Lather! Rinse. Include your feet ;). Bonus tip, at the end of your shower, let the water run cold over your skin to close your pores.

Wash your training clothes promptly after every use.

Wash your braces and joint supports.

Do not leave sweaty clothing in your gym bag or your car.

Dry and sanitize your equipment. Gym bags, mouth guards, shin guards, ear guards, gloves etc.

Inspect yourself for skin irritations and infections. If you suspect you may have an infection, notify Harts and seek medical attention.

Judah Ciervo Muay Thai Instructor

Muay Thai instructor / Ranking: Black

Judah’s practice of the martial arts began in 1994 when he received a copy of Bruce Lee’s Tao of Jeet Kune Do, which he studied intently for several years. A self-directed learner from a young age, Judah first began formal instruction in the fighting arts in the fall of 1997 studying at the Philadelphia Muay Thai Academy under Gerry Brown and Ken Perry (RIP). Judah earned his Muay Thai shorts under Ajarn Sakasem Kanthawong and Kru Andy Russell in February 2000 and began to compete as an amateur in Muay Thai that summer for the next 9 years. Judah has a fought both nationally and internationally in Muay Thai, most recently fighting the 2010 Pradal Serey (Kun Khmer) national champion in Phnom Penh, Cambodia.

In 2002 Judah became a Muay Thai instructor and the Competition Team Coach at Body Arts Gym under Angel Cartagena. That same year Judah broadened his horizons and began learning no-gi grappling and mixed martial arts, under Stephen Haigh founder of the Philadelphia Fight Factory, and had his first Shoot Fight/MMA bout in the fall of 2002. While fighting under the Fight Factory banner from 2002-2009 Judah was the Muay Thai coach for the MMA team and was privileged to have been a teammate and sparring partner of future MMA luminaries Eddie Alvarez and Zach Makovsky during the first 5 years of their careers.

Judah is part of the last generation of MMA fighters to have competed in Vale Tudo matches (one 10 minute round all techniques allowed) in the United States in April 2003 against Billy Craparo (RIP). Judah won his pro MMA debut April 2008 by second round TKO and made his pro Muay Thai debut January 2009.

Since March 2013 Judah has been continuing his martial arts journey learning Gracie Jiu-jitsu at Balance Studios under the instruction of the Migliarese and Vogel brothers and is continuing his study of Muay Thai under the guidance of Master Instructor Kru Andy Russell.
