We have some big updates on the Mill Valley gym!
Construction Updates: We've been rolling up our sleeves to finish the sprung floors, and we've had fantastic help along the way. Big shoutouts to:
John and DJ - our two San Francisco black belts (fun fact: John's a Tam High grad!) and George H., who helped us glue a whopping 850 foam blocks to sheets of plywood. Our nostrils may never be the same again!
Drew - who helped us expertly lay down the plywood and start the cuts for the second layer of plywood.
Raquel - my cousin, who came in and worked tirelessly, cutting plywood to size and drilling down the top layer to the bottom layer.
Tim B. - who skillfully helped us rip plywood to size for the borders! He's even generously loaning us his planer to ensure the mat borders are cut to perfection.
Next up - the tatami mats are scheduled to arrive on Friday, and I'll be heading to Chico to pick up the wall mats that we're repurposing from one of the gyms we had to close during COVID.
Class Schedule: Here's a sneak peak at our first draft of the class schedule. We are committed to creating a schedule that works for our community, so let us know what you think!

Opening Date: Assuming all stays on track, we will have a soft opening for presale students only starting the week of Saturday, September 30! If you haven't purchased a presale membership or class pack yet, there are still some offers available here. We are planning our official Grand Opening party on October 7th at 1pm, so mark your calendar to join us for some music, food, and of course some jiu-jitsu. Classes to the public (including non-presale students) will start after the official grand opening on October 7th.
Thank you for being a part of our vibrant community, and we can't wait to see you on the mats!
