A: After a few classes and based on your interest you can purchase a white judo uniform online from a number of different websites.
Q: I have martial arts experience, am I allowed to wear my belt rank in class? Will you acknowledge it?
A: We will acknowledge your art and your rank depending on how related your art is to Budoshin Jujitsu. We may allow you to wear your rank until you are tested for yellow belt, however that is not always the case.
Q: Is there a student handbook?
A: Yes, all you need to do is ask and one will be given to you at no cost.
Q: How seriously do you incorporate Japanese terminology in class and in belt tests?
A: Overall, We don't focus heavily on Japanese terminology.
At times we will use Japanese terminology in class, it will allow students to slowly learn the terminology.
In belt tests, we will use Japanese terminology from yellow belt test onward.
Keep in mind that we care more about the students foundation and their overall growth in the art, compared to understanding Japanese terminology. Understanding terminology and knowing it off hand matters more in the Brown belt levels where one is required to assist in class.

A: Classes run all year.

A: No, we will not ask and it is not a requirement to be vaccinated against COVID-19 to join class.
Q: I have a particular injury will you be able to accommodate?
A: Depending on the injury, whether it is a new or old/still healing, we will try to accommodate, however it is best to consult your doctor beforehand and then make a sound decision. If so then we will do our best to accommodate and it is also a good idea to let us know of any injury beforehand.
Q: What happens when it snows? Does class cancel or is it a case by case basis?
A: Most of the time when it snows, class will cancel, either by the gym closing or the instructor canceling class.
Q: When does class cancel? And how will I know if it is?
A: When you join the class, we ask to have your contact info (email is best) so we may inform you of any changes to class or any additional info that may be happening. If you are inquiring on our website then you may want to email the instructor directly to be sure class is happening.
Class cancelations are not always posted on the site, email the instructor for inquiring about class.
