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.

Kids BJJ Promotions at Hart BJJ, Boxing and Mixed Martial Arts

What you need to know!

       Our ranking system for youth belts in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is as follows: white (all ages), grey (<7), yellow (7+), orange (10+) and green (13+).  A green belt is the highest rank possible for a youth martial arts under the age of 16 in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  When a green belt turns 16, he/she is awarded his/her blue belt.  Youth belts, like adult belts, earn degrees.  Each belt has the potential to earn up to 4 degrees.
       Students, I know you may have some questions about what to expect on the 21st.  Here is an idea, Yellow belts, get ready to run the warm ups. After the warm ups, students will demonstrate certain techniques in front of the instructors and their families.  Here are some examples: breakfall, stand-in-base, sprawl, shrimping, trap and roll, bump sweep, armlock, and 2 takedowns.  Remember, these are just a few of the techniques we want demonstrated, not all of them. Next, everyone’s favorite part, sparring! This portion of promotions is incredibly rigorous, yet fun for our students.  We try to push their limits while making them tired.  Why? Because when a student is tired he/she can no longer use strength to overpower an opponent, but rather has to use technique.
       PARENTS! How should students prepare for the upcoming promotions? First, attend as many classes as your schedule allows in the upcoming weeks until promotions. Next, it is important for parents, talk about Jiu Jitsu with your kids at home.  If you have the space, practice at home with your kids. Encourage as much fun with Jiu Jitsu as possible over the next couple months.  Classes will pick up in pace, so it important to keep the fun in Jiu Jitsu without pressure of success.  As coaches, we know your kids are ready for the next level! They do not need any pressure added to the 21st.  Rather, help us build up their confidence.  If you feel like your son/daughter might need an extra push getting ready for promotions, speak with Coach Courtney about Jiu Jitsu.  These 30-45 minute lessons will help to get your son/daughter sharper and more prepared for promotions.  Finally, the week leading up to promotions, make sure your son/daughter is hydrated and well rested.  This will make a huge difference as well as having your son/daughter drink at least 2 glasses of water before coming into the academy.  Also, make sure they eat a good breakfast.  You are more than welcome to bring healthy, energy providing snacks for them on promotion day.  (***Please, do NOT bring peanut or tree nuts!  See the list below for some snack ideas.)
      Promotions will be an exciting day! You all have wonderful, talented and dedicated kids.  The coaching staff at Hart Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing and MMA is very excited for the 21st.  Your kids are ready for the challenge 🙂
Healthy Snack ideas:
Low-sugar, high-fiber granola bars
String Cheese
Apple Sauce
Cliff protein bars for kids
Veggies (carrots, snap peas, celery, etc)
Rice cakes
