What should I wear to my first Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class at Nitro?

If you are trying our class for the first time you should wear comfortable athletic clothing (t-shirt or compression shirt, shorts or board shorts). Females – you will feel more comfortable with a top that is not low cut, plus a sports bra, and long board shorts or sweat pants. Most people wear sandals as we do not allow shoes on the mat. Also bring water.

However, when you sign up for Nitro BJJ you will need a traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi. You can purchase a Gi at the front desk.

Gis should be black, white or blue for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. A complete uniform includes a belt; all new members start at white. Make sure to check if your gi includes a belt, you may have to order it separately. Also, check each brand’s size chart because every brand has a different cut. We do require all team members to wear our team patch on their Gi which can be purchased at the front desk or with an instructor.
