First Time Students

We love having new students at the Academy, whether you have prior training experience or are brand new to training. Below are answers to Frequently Asked Questions we often hear at the Academy.

Absolutely. We don't care what gym you are currently training under, what patch is on your gi, what color your gi is (yes, apparently that can matter) or who you fight for, everyone is welcome to train. For single visits we do not charge a mat fee. For multiple visits we may collect a small fee. If you are in town specifically for a tournament and need a place to get some work in you are 100% welcome as well, no mat fee.
In general, it is best to bring a pair of shorts and a t-shirt for your first class. Anything you don’t mind getting a little sweaty, because we will make you sweat! For the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes, if you own a Kimono or Gi please bring it. If not, we have spares you can use. Fundamentals students come in shorts and T-Shirt, we can provide any uniforms or equipment needed for the classes.
For all classes we recommend a mouthpiece and groin protection. For the Muay Thai, we have spare boxing gloves, shin pads but we recommend bringing your own if you have it. We also have pads you can borrow. For the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes we have spare uniforms you may use if you do own one.
Yes, we have classes designed specifically for people with no prior experience. Our Fundamentals Programs are 8 weeks long with 2 classes per week; one for Grappling and one for Striking. Take one or both programs. We also offer a Youth Beginners Grappling class for children new to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Still not sure after you FREE Trial Classes? For new students we offer our Fundamentals Programs which are 8 weeks long with 2 classes per week. For more experienced students looking for a new place to train, we offer a $99 Trial Membership for 1 month of classes. There is no commitment beyond that 30 days and we allow you to train as many of the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai classes as you wish.
We do not like to use the "hard sales" practices here at Yamasaki Academy of Woodbridge.  Most gyms want to make sure that they try to talk you into signing up as part of the conversation on how much a membership costs.  With lots of hidden fees and lengthy, mandatory contracts you may be told that the product is superior and that cost shouldn't be your choice for why you choose where to train.

Which is true.  Cost shouldn't be the reason.  The quality of the product (the technical information provided), the personalities of the coaches and students and their ability to help you achieve your goals should matter more.  Because we feel strongly that our product and atmosphere here is so strong we have no problem being completely transparent on what our prices are.  If you wish to train somewhere else because a competitor may cost slightly less, so be it.

Adult Students

If you are a beginning adult student and purchased a Groupon for Yamasaki Academy we will apply it to the Fundamentals program(s) of your choice which allows you to complete the entire program for a much lower rate. We will need the remaining balance for the Fundamentals program, however, so please see a Staff Member when you arrive for your first class. Experienced adult students can use the Groupon for any of the All Levels classes for Muay Thai or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. At the end of the Groupon trial we will auto-enroll you as a 1 Class/Week Member with the Academy. You will have the option to increase the number of classes per week at any time. Should you choose to not wish to continue training with the Academy please inform us before the Groupon Trial expires.
