How We Treat Beginners

Here’s a fact that most people forget and/or take for granted!


And we feel every beginner should be treated with respect. It’s integral to how our culture is built and it’s the #1 reason that we are the largest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu school in Cuyahoga Falls.

In this video, Head Instructor, Bill Jones talks about the importance of treating beginners well and not just using them as practice dummies.

It’s sad that more schools out there don’t take this approach to how they handle beginners. It leads to better learning, retention, and overall skill because you are able to train longer.

Bill Jones is the head instructor and president of Top Level Martial Arts in Cuyahoga Falls, OH. He has been training martial arts since 1985 and holds several black belt ranks, including a Black Belt under Master Pedro Sauer. If you would like to learn more, contact bill at
