I'm going to be attending my first BJJ class this week, and knowing that a number of guys on this board train in martial arts of difference kinds, I thought it would be a good idea to get some advice or tips (whatever they may be).

I've training kickboxing and karate on and off since I was little, but I lost interest in training in striking about 3 years ago, as I became passionate about grappling of all kinds.

I've been advised by the teacher to come along for a month or so to see if it captures my interest before buying a gi, but I was wondering if anyone has any tips on what to wear/take with me, or what to expect.

It's a beginners class, so I won't be rolling with any black belts or anything, and I'm really looking forward to it, as I've been looking for a local BJJ class for about 6 months, and couldn't find one, until I recently found out that this one is only about 15mins walk from my house!

Cheers in advance for any help
