No gi is back, plus the next boxing orientation

May 10, 2021

No gi class is back! Our adult jiujitsu classes on Fridays will be no gi, beginning May 14th. You do not need to sign up separately to participate. Most people prefer to wear board shorts and a rash guard. It is also acceptable to wear gi pants and a rash guard. However, it is NOT acceptable to roll bare-chested or wear only vale tudo shorts (spandex shorts). For anyone wanting to wear yoga pants or leggings without board shorts, make sure the material is thick enough that your pants are not see-through when stretched.

Gracie Barra board shorts and rash guards are available at the academy from our pro shop or by visiting

Our next boxing orientation is Saturday, May 15th at 9:00 AM. We require all students to attend orientation class before attending any striking classes at Gracie Barra Issaquah, regardless of previous experience. Orientations are open to the community, free of charge and do not require any equipment. Students must be on time, and must be a minimum of 13 years old.
