I started right after the gym opened with no experience and not in the best shape.
The training is strenuous exercise and the gym has a detailed onboarding process where you will have 6 or 7 one on one lessons with coaches before you start taking classes with other members. It will help you feel comfortable with the basics if you're new to BJJ. Everyone at the gym is very friendly and the coaches are great.
