    DOS & DON'TS

    Pellegrino Mixed Martial Arts Guidelines

    1) Arrive 10-15 minutes early to class: We have a lot to prepare for before each and every class. Make sure you arrive early to give yourself enough time to get on the mat.
    2) No jewelry or beauty accessories on the mat: These can seriously injure someone. Please make sure to take off everything besides what is required.
    3) Always respect the higher belts on the mat.

    4) All skill levels are welcome and classes are formatted so that there will be appropriate instruction for everyone. There are always plenty of instructors to assist with newer students

    5) Ask questions. This is how you will get better!
