The atmosphere is great because everyone around you motivates you to train harder. I never want to leave the place. I never feel awkward raising my hand if I need help because everyone is really approachable. Training Grounds is my home away from home.

Am I going to get beat up by advanced people?

This is something that is all to common in schools that teach self defense classes in nj. Some gyms are only geared towards "fighters" and the hobbyist gets thrown to the side or gets roughed up.

When you come in you don't get thrown to the wolves and left to figure it out on your own. Everyone has a teaching hat on helping eachother out. The atmosphere is very welcoming.

Is the place going to be intimidating?

One of the first things you will notice when you come in is the friendly relaxed atmosphere and strong sense of community. For instance we throw UFC parties, go on outings together, and celebrate each other’s birthdays. We are a tight knit community mutually dedicated to helping each other reach our respective fitness and self defense goals.

I thought maybe I was goign to be too old to train but I needed to find something to do for exercise that wasn't boring. The self defense classes at Training Grounds, specifically the BJJ is excellent. It doesn't matter your age, you can do this.

I may be too physically weak to do this

If you are physically weak that may be your single biggest advantage and you may find yourself progressing faster than someone who is stronger. The reason for this is that you will be forced to do the techniques correctly instead of using too much strength. The brazilian jiu jitsu techniques are based on leverage which is going to allow you to be able to control and defeat larger, stronger, more athletic opponents with very little effort.
