Adult FAQ's

What do I wear to my First class?

Attire suitable for class can be any work out/gym wear you prefer (e.g. gym shorts or leggings and t-shirt). Also, don’t forget to bring a photo ID so you can check in before class!

What is a Gi?

Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kids Martial arts programs use the Gi as the traditional uniform. The Gi consists of three pieces; the top is similar to a robe, the bottoms are a loose fitting trouser and the belt is tied over the Gi top. The word “Gi” comes from the Japanese word “keikogi” meaning training gear.

At American Top Team Miramar, when you join our academy we provide you with our official white Gi.

Will I lose weight doing Martial Arts?

Any strenuous activity can lead to weight loss. The different martial arts we provide encompass a variety of aerobic, anaerobic and strength conditioning elements.

Each class you train with us you will feel your core strengthen, cardiovascular capacity increase and your muscular endurance exceed any plateau that traditional exercise may not break.

You do not need to be in shape to do martial arts, let martial arts get YOU in shape.

Will I Get Hurt?

As with any activity, there is always a possibility of injury. In our academy’s history, we have not experienced any serious injuries because prior to learning techniques our instructors incorporate various stretch and warm-up exercises to prevent injuries. Students will learn to listen to their bodies FIRST, before pushing themselves to do any technique or exercise they may feel uncomfortable doing.

How do I earn different belt ranks?

As each student progresses, a new belt rank is awarded during graduation by the Head Instructor of the academy.

Are there competitions? Do I have to compete?

ATT Miramar does not make any of our students compete unless they want to. Only about 15% of our total student base are actively competing. The rest are here to enjoy all the benefits that come from learning martial arts!

Kids FAQ's

What should my child wear to their first class?

Children should be dressed in comfortable, loose-fitting clothing, preferably gym shorts and a T-shirt. Also, don’t forget to bring a photo ID so you can check in before class!

What Kind Of Martial Arts Do You Teach Kids?

When many parents think of martial arts, the first thing that comes to mind is Karate!

At ATT Miramar, we combine Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Wrestling, Boxing, & Self-Defense to teach children ages 4 & up how to effectively defend themselves.

Our program has shown to be more effective than the neighborhood karate school!

How Are Classes Taught & Will My Child Earn A Belt Rank?

All ATT Miramar classes are offered to students ages 4 & Up and are separated by ages and experience level. Classes are taught by using a proven curriculum system which allows students to master the basics and advance as they learn.

Students earn ranks as they progress in their program. Today many martial arts programs will “SELL” you a belt. ATT Miramar will only promote students who truly earn their rank. This is one of the most important parts of our teaching process.

Will My Child Get Hurt?

As with any activity, there is always a possibility of injury. In our academy’s history, we have not experienced any serious injuries because prior to learning techniques our instructors incorporate various stretch and warm-up exercises to prevent injuries.

Students are always monitored by one or more instructors to ensure a safe and fun learning environment.

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
