MAX JIU-JITSU ACADEMY & YOGA STUDIO has created its own protocol(see below links) as a measure to prevent the spread of COVID-19 infection within the facility and its members. Stage 1 is basically body weight exercises which doesn’t include any physical bodily contact with others. After careful implementation of our protocols, we gradually proceed our level of precautions to Stage 2 which involves slight bodily contact (limiting to the limbs and torso, but avoiding close faca-to-face positions) with only 1 designated partner. As of now, we are proceeding to Stage 3, including physical contact (but only with fully covered face masks on, forming a group of designated 5 members). All classes are on a reservation basis, with the maximum occupancy of 10-15 depends on the Stage of the class.

Even under the current COVID-19 situation, we still offer a free trial class,from any Stage 1 class, which doesn’t involve any physical contact but using your own body weight and movements. Please feel free to contact us for more info. Reservation required.

During our normal operation period before COVID-19 pandemic, you also had rights to use the MAXJJ’s facility including use of showers, training equipment such as kettlebells, dumbbells, chinning station and class observations during the opening hours, but those are temporarily suspended.

Discontinuing/Changing your Membership

Either to take months off or to discontinue the membership, your request must be presented in person minimum 30 days prior to the month of your discontinuance month. (for example, if you wish to discontinue membership from January, your request must be presented by December 1st, but if your request is presented on December 2nd, your membership for January will remain and will be discontinued from February.
Direct consultation to the academy is the only valid way for the request, not by emails or telephone. To discontinue membership, all the balances must be paid off to be approved.

Non-dual membership with other Jiu-Jitsu/Grappling schools

We do not deny the practical meaning and importance of training with different partners and different environments, however, to be a member of MAXJJ, you are required to make a commitment for the team, because belt rank promotion is associated with the academy’s unique curriculum. The head instructor always puts priority to its own members who respect his lineage and choose to learn from him. It is a unique system of learning for most traditional martial arts including Jiu-JItsu. i.e., whenever you compete or have any public exposures, you are required to represent our team. Thus MAXJJ is not accepting dual membership with other Jiu-Jitsu/submission grappling schools or teams.
However, we welcome you as a visitor, if your priority is to support other teams/gyms. Please be our guest under “Visitor Fee System”, 2,750yen per class
