Beginner Help

Congratulations!  You’ve taken that first step and have become a part of our family!  It is at about this point when you get excited about getting your new gi, and it’s not long before you pose that age old question… “How do I tie my belt? ?”  No worries!  You’re not alone!  I have just the right video for you, my friend.  Watch the video below to see Rener Gracie break it down for us step-by-step.  He gives us three options to use, so you get to choose the one that works best for you!  Feel free to use this video as many times as you need!  You might even find that different ways to tie your belt work best in different situations.  It’s all good!  

Now here’s something I bet you never even thought you needed to ask!  “How do I tie my pants?”  I mean… it sounds like a simple enough task, does it not?  And yet… here we are.  There’s a reason why we might be having difficulties with our jiu-jitsu pants.  We expect to tie them the same way we tie our drawstring shorts, or our jogging pants, right?  And why wouldn’t we?  But it turns out, that tying them in the same way as we do our daily clothes can actually cause that mysterious loosening of our pants during class.  Watch the video below as Rener explains how and why that happens, and what to do to fix it.  

Whether you’ve experienced one or both of these problems, don’t worry!  These are common issues that come up all the time, and as Rener said, sometimes even very experienced jiu-jitsu practitioners have had these same problems!  You are not alone.  I hope I have helped you learn more about how to use your new jiu-jitsu uniform, and as always, don’t be afraid to ask us if you need further help or have any more questions. After all, we’ve all been beginners, and in many ways, we will always continue to be beginners.  Always remember that.  And as always, have fun!  ;0)
