What To Know When You’re a BJJ Hobbyist Thinking of Going to a Competition Class

If you’re like most people, you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because it’s a fantastic way to de-stress, to learn a useful skill, to stay in shape, and to hang out with cool people. However, some of your training partners are going to be more inclined towards the competitive side of things; i.e., they think of training as something more than a hobbyist thing to do. Sure, they may not be professionals, but they’re heavily focused on competition.

A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) competition class is an intense training session designed to prepare practitioners for tournaments and competition.

It typically involves a warm-up, sparring, drilling of specific techniques and positions, instruction on competition strategies and tactics, and mental preparation.

These classes are usually more intense than regular training sessions, which is why it’s important to approach them with caution and always prioritize safety and injury prevention.

Competition classes are usually reserved for more experienced practitioners who have a good understanding of BJJ techniques and are preparing for upcoming tournaments or competitions. However, some gyms may also offer these classes for beginners to help them build the skills and confidence needed to compete in the future.

Overall, a BJJ comp class can be a great way to improve your skills, build confidence, and prepare yourself mentally for tournament matches. The structure of these classes can vary depending on the gym and instructor so it’s best to consult with your coach or instructor before attending one.
