Our Mission

To help Jiu Jitsu academies put their lessons online, privately. We want to inject more Jiu Jitsu into the world by empowering academies to share their knowledge at scale.

Why?

Techniques are often quite detailed such that newer students rarely catch the whole thing. It is really beneficial to be able to return to a lesson to review and watch it over again. Even the more advanced students would benefit from this. Practice is not the only aspect to improving in Jiu Jitsu, study plays a large role as well. Give your students a tool to learn and succeed faster.

Would you prefer your students watching random videos from Instagram and YouTube to try out on the mats? Or to review your very own past lessons, inside a convenient structure of series or categories that you define?

Offer added value to your existing students, increase your academy's marketability, or create a new revenue stream by charging for online-only access. Especially during this time of the Coronavirus pandemic, there's never been a better time to bring your academy online.

How?

Smartphone cameras are crazy good these days and everyone has one. After receiving permission from my Professor, I started recording the classes with this smartphone holder and this shotgun microphone. Neither are actually needed, but it improves sound quality.

There are all kinds of similar things you can get that aren't expensive, like this, but none are required. The recordings don't need to be instructional-quality, the members of my academy were over the moon just to be able to review past lessons or see what they missed if they couldn't attend.

Questions & Answers

Question & Answers

How do I upload videos?

It is very simple. You will need to create a YouTube channel, upload your video there as "unlisted" and then copy/paste the link when adding a new item to your library here. That will embed the video in your private online academy. Being an unlisted video means it is not discoverable by the public on YouTube. We are happy to walk you through the entire process if you are unfamiliar with using YouTube Studio.

Why do I need to use YouTube?

We want to empower Jiu Jitsu academies to be able to teach online, at scale, and at as low a cost to you as possible. Hosting and serving video is expensive to do. Lucky for everyone, YouTube's scale allows it to do things few others can - such as freely uploading videos inaccessible to the public. There's no other way to have your own online academy with thousands of videos for so cheap.

What are monthly visits?

Monthly visits are calculated as the total unique daily visits in a month. Multiple visits by the same person in one day therefore only count as one visit. We want to keep things simple so we've set a number that should be more than sufficient for your academy and we will let you know if you go over.

What is CDN bandwidth?

CDN stands for Content Delivery Network and is how we make sure things load for you super fast. Similar to monthly visits, we've chosen a number that should be more than sufficient and we will let you know if you go over.

How does the single-password protected site work?

When visiting the URL of your online academy the user will be prompted for a password and the whole video library will be accessbile behind this wall. There is no individual user management. If you'd like to prevent someone who has the password from continuing to access your videos you will need to change the password and inform everyone you'd like to have access of the change.

This is a simple way to get your academy online if you're still small. Many schools have private chat groups for members. If you monitor the members of the group you can periodically change your site's password and share to your member group so that only those you want to continue to have access will be able to.

What does "optional" mean with regards to the transaction fee?

The transaction fee is not optional but accepting payments is. You are not required to charge members for access. You are free to charge your students however you'd like and then simply create "free" accounts for them to access your online academy.

If you'd like to keep things simple, you could consolidate and manage your gym's membership payments all in one place along with access to your online academy. You can create whatever payment tiers you'd like, such as Gym-only, Online-only, Gym + Online, etc.

Our membership platform provider charges a small flat percentage fee (indicated above) on top of Stripe's credit card processing fees. See Stripe's pricing for more details.

How do I get paid if collecting payments?

Stripe! A Stripe account is required to charge memberships and receive payouts. Money you earn will be transferred directly into your bank account. It's very simple to set up and we'd be happy to help you if needed.

Do you have a free trial?

We do not have a free trial because we do a completely custom, white-glove set up & training (don't worry, it's not complicated at all, we just want you to be totally comfortable) for all our customers. However, if you're not happy with things during your first month and wish to leave, we will refund you - no problemo!

If you no longer wish to continue we will not make you stay, you can cancel anytime - no contracts. We offer discounts on annual payments though, feel free to ask about that if you're interested.

What if I don't have my own domain?

No problem! We will just create an address for you at yourschool.jiujitionary.com until you choose to get your own domain.
