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.
I'll put it this way, there are several Jiu Jitsu schools just minutes from where I live but instead joined FJJ, where I've been a member for almost a year now. Keep in mind FJJ is an hour away from where I live, but that just shows how highly I think of the school, it's instructors, and fellow students.
This is a great place to train! Two reputable black belts teach the classes, which is a rarity at most Brazilian Jiu Jitsu academies (that often fly in a black belt every once in a while). The BJJ classes generally consist of conditioning, technique, and sparring. I find the classes very challenging and rewarding. The community of people is great, with very little ego or attitude. As a beginner student, I have been treated with a lot of respect and patience by both fellow (beginner and advanced) students and instructors. I've looked at some of the other academies in the local area and easily choose Fairfax Jiu Jitsu. Other BJJ academies may look a lot fancier, but when it comes down to the quality and availability of instruction as well as the sense of community, I feel that Fairfax JJ beats them hands down.
