- Jiu-Jitsu Uniform (basic white uniforms are $65 – you can purchase here and we will size you in person. (mandatory for Jiu-Jitsu class) There are NO limits on what color uniforms you can wear in class.
- Mouth Piece – Not mandatory, but a good idea.
- Rash Guards (tight, fitted compression shirts) / Spats (tights) – These can be worn under your Gi (uniform) or are perfect for kickboxing or “no-gi” Jiu-Jitsu. (not mandatory, but comfortable)

Be sure to check out our friends at White Crow Botanicals for their amazing product
called “People Putty”. I get asked all the time…but I rarely ever endorse products. In fact I don’t even like calling this a “product”…but rather a companion to my training! People Putty is a natural, organic healing liniment that is sprayed externally on your skin. I have an old tennis elbow injury from early on in my BJJ career that has been very inflamed recently…So I thought this is the perfect test for People’s Putty. I stopped icing my injury and only used People Putty daily for 6 weeks and I noticed a HUGE difference! Not only had the pain disappeared but the tenderness was gone and and it felt amazing! I strongly recommend People Putty as a daily healing aid and supplement to the intense rigors of BJJ.
