Please bring the following with you when enrolling at CARPE DIEM BJJ.

1. Completed Application Form. This can be obtained from CARPE DIEM BJJ.

2. Enrollment Fee (Cash or credit cards).

3. First Month’s Membership Fee. Membership Fees are calculated from the first to the last day of a month. Those people who join after the first of the month will be asked to pay a relative percent of the first month’s fee. For example, someone joining on the 15th would pay 50% of the first month’s fee.

4. Credit cards or for Japanese Bank Account holders: Bank cash card. Monthly Membership Fees for CARPE DIEM BJJ are processed through monthly automatic bank transfers from members’ accounts. It usually takes one month from the time of registration for the banking information to be processed, so members are asked to pay for the first month of membership at CARPE DIEM BJJ in cash. From the second month, monthly fees will be withdrawn automatically from members’ bank accounts.

Interested people may join one of our group classes for a free trial lesson at CARPE DIEM BJJ. Please contact Yuki Ishikawa to arrange the time, date and location. If you are coming for a trial lesson, or for your first few lessons, you don’t need to bring anything. We will provide you with a Gi (the traditional Jiu-jitsu uniform) and a towel. We have change rooms and shower facilities. Soap and shampoo are provided.
