I joined the Muay Thai program at Fairfax Jiu Jitsu in late 2011. I initially went once or twice a week and found the program challenging but fun from the start. I slowly increased my attendance frequency and I'm now on my fourth month of consistently training Muay Thai three times a week. The coach Matt Nielsen is a true asset to the gym. He's dedicated to the program and to the sport in general and keeps things fresh and fun. He's great at pushing his students and motivating them to do their best without putting any stressful pressures on them. I learn something new every time I go to his class either from him or from his top Muay Thai student who I've found to be another great asset to the program. The program is simply addictive and has helped me to get in the best shape of my life. As a female student, I initially had doubts about whether doing something like Muay Thai was suitable for me. I am now really glad I decided to try it out because it has benefited me in so many ways and has made me strong both physically and mentally. I have not tried any of the other programs offered by the gym and so cannot comment on them -- but I cannot say enough good things about the Muay Thai program at FJJ.
Fairfax Jiu Jitsu has changed my life! I joined the BJJ program at FJJ in June 2011 with no prior martial arts experience. Within a few months of attending class two nights per week: I was in better shape than a decade earlier as a college athlete; I returned to being a competitive athlete; I was constantly learning practical self-defense skills that I as a petite women could use against an attacker of any size; and my self-confidence and motivation improved which led to positive changes throughout my life. A few years later, FJJ has become my second home and I am now competing in BJJ at top-levels. The class format at FJJ caters to students of all ages and interest levels (physical fitness, self-defense, and competitive athlete), so every student is able to work at their own pace and towards their personal goals. The atmosphere is friendly, fun loving, hardworking, supportive, and has a level of camaraderie I have not experienced with past teams. No matter how tough my day has been prior to arriving at FJJ to train, I always leave with a smile on my face. Both the adult and children’s programs at FJJ are top-notch. I wholeheartedly recommend attending a trial class at FJJ. It may change your life too.
Several years ago, I developed the aspirations to become a MMA fighter. It wasn't until I arrived at the Fairfax JJ MMA program that I was able to follow through with this goal. Under the watchful eye of Coach Bill Easlick, I was able to develop all the tools I needed to feel confidence in my skills. Furthermore, all of the fighters work as a closely-knit team to help build each other up.
