Frequently Asked Questions
Absolutely! Visitors are always welcome to come and train with us. However, we do require you to contact us first to make accommodations.
**For current COVID-19 protocols, we are currently requiring all visitors to contact us first before attending any classes.** While you do not need to make a reservation or call ahead, to attend a class, we ask that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the class you are attending to fill out a waiver, any needed paperwork, and also become acclimated with our training facility.
This will largely depend on your skill level. For safety reasons, we may ask you to refrain from attending a particular class based on your experience. If you are brand new to martial arts/combat sports, we suggest arranging an orientation/free private lesson with us such that we can go over everything you may need to know when attending your first class. For more information or to gauge which classes may best fit, please see our programs page.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes will require a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu uniform (gi) while no-gi classes will require appropriate no-gi attire. Your gi may have patches from any affiliation and may be any color. You may wear a rashguard/under armor under your gi-top should you wish. Acceptable no-gi attire would be board shorts or athletic shorts with a tie/velcro to keep them fixed to your body. Spats are permitted. We ask that you wear a rashguard/under armor for no-gi training but you may be allowed to wear some shirts that are fitted to your body that will not tear. Please refrain from wearing any clothing or accessories with zippers, pockets, buttons, or any sharp edges which harm your fellow training partners or the equipment. Please ensure that your attire, gi or no-gi, is clean and does not have an unpleasant odor. We also ask that your attire does not have any tears. We reserve the right to ask you to change attire or limit your participation should your attire be unsatisfactory.
We have a very limited amount of gis that may be available for sale. We do not have rentals but may have one-time loaner gis available if you are trying out a class for your first time or during orientation.
You will need bag gloves for boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing, and MMA. We recommend that bag gloves weigh at least 12 oz and you also utilize hand wraps. MMA classes will require you to also have a pair of MMA gloves. You will need appropriate gear when it comes time for sparring. This will include but is not limited to: sparring gloves (not bag gloves) with hand wraps, headgear, mouthpiece, groin protection, shin protection (for Muay Thai & MMA).
We have a designated changing area and restrooms for both men and women. We have one shower that only one person is allowed to use at a time. We provide limited towel service and suggest that you bring your own towel and toiletries just in case. We do not have lockers in our changing areas. Should you feel the need to bring your personal belongings into the training area, feel free to utilize one of the “cubby” storage areas we have located next to the mats.
While we would like to be able to provide an environment that allows members to train at their leisure, we ask that you respect the ongoing classes and participate in them. We typically have sufficient time before, after, and in-between classes where you may have the opportunity to hit the bags, use the weight area, or utilize the mat area for additional drilling and sparring.
We have general rules and etiquette signs near the entrance and in the training area that we recommend you read through while you are at the training center.
Monthly costs can vary based on what you may choose to train. We offer a couple of different pricing options and also offer discounts for family households, first responders, high school and undergraduate college students, and some city occupations. We suggest contacting us to discuss what may best fit you or come in and try out all the classes! We want to make sure you are comfortable with what you want to train and with our training environment. The cost of training can be expensive, but we do our best to keep our costs as low as possible for the quality of the training you will receive with our team at New Breed Training Center. It isn’t always how much you pay, but how much the training pays you back in the end.
