Now, here is the exciting news!
We have our local Virtual School setup with live-streaming and interactive classes.
So we will be able to have classes again with our dear Professors and Coaches from our school. Below is the preliminary schedule, there may be changes to it over the next week or so based on how things evolve.
The BarraFIT classes are Jiu-Jitsu inspired fitness classes for students that are looking into getting a challenging and fun workout.
The GBK BJJ are kids Jiu-Jitsu classes.
The GB1 All Levels are for Advanced kids, juniors, and adult classes.
To get setup email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Instructions for when you join the room: It will ask you to enter your name. PLEASE ENTER YOUR NAME OR ELSE YOU WON’T BE ALLOWED TO STAY. We need to know who is in the room for attendance and to interact with you.
If we don’t know who it is, that person may be removed from the virtual room.
Please mute your mic when entering the room. Please remember to activate your web; we would love to see you!
Zoom will give you the option on which screens to view. You can select “speaker view” to watch only the Coach or “gallery view” to see everyone in the room.
You will have an option to mute and unmute yourself as well. During class, we will ask everyone to mute their mics for a better experience and raise their hand if they want to talk.
Recommendations for best use: A Laptop or Mobile Device is probably the most flexible device so you can quickly move it to fit your surroundings. You should ensure you have adequate and safe surroundings so that you do not fall into or hit anything and hurt yourself or damage your property. We recommend a minimum of 10×10 feet of free space to move around, especially if you have a partner with you.
We suggest you find a way to pad your training area, whether it’s carpeting or something else. We recommend Dollamur home mats. They have a special discount for home mats.
If the weather is appropriate and you have space, you may even consider going outside to train. If you can, we encourage you to have a training partner.
For parents, it would be great to do the techniques with them and serve as their training partner. But if you cannot, we will also have drills that the kids can do on their own to learn the technique and movement.
For adults, we suggest the same thing… if you have someone that can work with you… fantastic, if not, no worries, we will have solo drills for you during the time we’re practicing the technique.
You can be in your Gi or not; we will show the techniques and variations for both during each class. There will not be any dedicated Gi or No-Gi classes on the virtual schedule.
We are very grateful for your willingness to adapt with us as a team to these circumstances.
We will continue to work as a team through this challenging, but a temporary period in our lives.
If you think any of your friends might be interested in enrolling in the Exclusive GB Online and virtual GB School, please feel free to let us know, and we will be able to set up their membership.
Stay safe and thank you for your support.
GB Kissimmee Team.
