For me, the choice to train at Fairfax Jiu Jitsu was easy. When I was looking for a place to train, I decided to look for something that had a combination of a safe and friendly training environment, experienced instructors, and a commitment to support me in my personal training goals. That is exactly what I got. FJJ’s MMA program is realistic and challenging. It combines drilling and live situations so we gain practical experience using techniques. The curriculum is for real! I am confident in the skills I have learned, whether I am striking, in the clinch, working my ground game, or transitioning in between.
Literally one of the best decisions I could have ever made. I was looking to learn bjj and I walked into FJJ as my first stop on academy hunting. I didn't need to visit any other academies. The culture in what FJJ teaches is very team an individual oriented. Literally some of the best instructors you could ask for. Even if it's a little out of your way, like it is for me, FJJ is so worth it. Honestly in the time I've been here this place has become a home for me, and I hope to learn from Sam and Mark for many years. They've helped me not just fall in love with bjj, but helped me become obsessed with it haha.
Before coming to Fairfax Jiu Jitsu, I wanted to do Mixed Martial Arts and looking for the right studio was similar to a company looking for a new employee. Fairfax JJ had the best resume when I was doing my research. The training is great, the workout is hard, but I have a fun time doing it. I started Martial Arts training when I was 8 years old, but that training did not give me joy. At FJJ, I enjoy coming to class every day. The coaches will be there to mentor and guide you and give you direction to the highest level of detail. At previous Martial Arts studios, I met students that had a big ego and thought they were better than all. At Fairfax Jiu Jitsu there is no ego and there is a sense of family, community, and pride in taking care of each other. The coaches treat everyone the same whether you just started or have trained for years. I train in BJJ and Muay Thai; both programs are outstanding. Bottom line: If you want a great workout, training to learn great skills while having fun at the same time, Fairfax Jiu Jitsu is the place to go. It is a great investment.
