How do memberships work at Legion?

Wow, that's a great question. Thanks for asking!

First, there's the trial...

One of the things that’s really important is for you, the prospective member, is to know if you like training at Legion.

We don’t want to rush anyone into committing to memberships, because this first element is crucial to our success and your satisfaction (they’re the same thing). 

This is why you see us tooting our “Free Week Trial” horn on the website and elsewhere. It’s the perfect, zero-risk opportunity to gauge if Legion is the right fit for you; do you truly like our environment? The in-class instruction? Your rolling partners? Does our schedule fit well with yours? We find that those that take advantage of the trial are overwhelmingly positive in their reactions, and leave Legion with a big smile.

We’re big proponents of doing things differently, and the best way for us to help you experience the “vibe” is to give you a trial week with no commitments. The only thing you need to sign before your first trial class is our liability waiver. 

When you sign up for a free trial, we will help you find the best classes for your schedule and experience level.

Attending the right classes for yourself.

Where’s the catch?

Ok, it’s time to tell you where the catch is. Our motive is to have you commit to training here for a six or twelve-month period. That way you keep coming in here day after day, learning jiu-jitsu from our instructors, and we can charge you fairly for our services each month.

The commitment shouldn’t make you weary. It should make you motivated; – its a pledge to working towards being happier, healthier, and more disciplined. Like, all the time. 

Why the membership contracts?

Because jiu jitsu is hard. It’s physical. Jiu jitsu will try to make you quit at times. Just like with any positive adversity, the rewards come from pushing through. 

Especially during the beginning, you’ll likely have periods when something will go down in your daily life that will make you stressed out, overwhelmed, or tired. We’re human – it happens. But maybe you start slipping, skipping training sessions, and before you know it, it’s been so long that it’s awkward going back. 

This is why we try to encourage upfront commitment: to help you get into a cycle of consistent improvement and perseverance. Regularity is the only way to get the true benefits of jiu-jitsu; the magic that happens when you start to get a hang of it. 

Ok, I’m done with my trial, the academy is amazing, I want to sign up, how do I do that?

All you need to do is text, call, or come see us in person at the front desk! You will reach our member specialists and front desk girls, Nina and Eleni, directly. They can get you set up with your Free Week Trial, help make class suggestions, and answer any pricing questions that you may have.

Wait, is there some kind of signup fee?

Most jiu jitsu academies are too insecure in their practices to do memberships the way we do. They have elaborate sales processes with scripts and manipulation techniques. They’ll take you through a whole spiel and at some point, they’re going to mention a $200 signup fee. 

Then they’ll magically waive it, just for you, isn’t that great? Well, we checked with our accountant and our lawyer and they were very clear in saying that it does not cost us anything to sign you as a member. 

Upon signing your Membership Agreement we’ll charge you for your first month, that’s IT. 

Are the extra charges for the online curriculum?

No, absolutely not. All our memberships come with free access to 100s of hours worth of instructional content on JiuJitsuX (all the content Keenan has ever uploaded, as well as footage from live Legion classes). Every Legion member on a commitment membership is given a personal login to access this library of extensive instructional resources.

What if I still change my mind despite all these perks?

While our trial is 7 days, we also have a 30-day money-back guarantee. If you decide in the first month of your membership that Legion is, for whatever reason, not the place for you – we will cancel your membership and refund your first payment if you so request.

This is to make it more comfortable for you knowing that even after becoming a member you have an option to change your mind. The only requirement is to attend at least 8 classes per month. That is the minimum at which we feel you can really experience what Legion academy has to offer.

There's just one more thing...

Ah yes, the big question. The pricing. Don’t worry, we’re transparent about that too. To learn about all of our prices, please click below.
