How do I prevent getting injured?
At Hypermodern we encourage training consistently by cultivating a safe environment that emphasizes learning before winning, which results in a very low injury rate. At Hypermodern you will find yourself surrounded by a team that has positive unconditional regard for one another, which keeps everyone training healthy.
Do I need to compete in order to be promoted?
A lack of competition experience will never prevent any student from receiving the rank they have earned. Competing is not mandatory, but it will be encouraged at the right time, when there is an opportunity to enhance your jiu-jitsu journey through competition. For regular competitors, competition can drastically accelerate one's progression in jiu-jitsu.
How do I know I am ready to compete?
If you are feeling comfortable with the fundamentals, and you are interested in competing, please let one of our coaches know. We recommended that you give yourself plenty of time to prepare for your first tournament (at least 4-8 weeks) and make sure you are committed to training consistently before you register. Consistency is very important for competitors. Competitions are structured by age, weight category and experience level and are a fun way to make new friends, and gain valuable jiu-jitsu experience. We do our best to prepare and coach each participant in these events, so we rely on early communication. *Coaching at competitions and events is subject to availability.
