What Should I expect from class?
Long answer short, expect to sweat. Every class is a blended mixture of stand up style grappling to mat work style ground fighting resembling that of BJJ. There will be portions of instruction going over new technique, drills to ingrain those techniques into you, and randori (sparring) to test what you have learned in a live enviorment.
For your 1st class in any age group you should bring a water bottle, positive attitude, and a will to learn. Wahadachi will provide a loaner uniform to fit you if needed until you are ready to decide if Judo is right for you.
