I was originally referred to FJJ by a friend and quickly understood why. The excellent instructors/owners have created a top flight academy with a positive and constructive atmosphere. From the very first day, despite a large group with deep experience levels, I never felt like an outsider. On the contrary, I immediately felt like "one of the students". Since then, my BJJ game has grown consistently each week. Most importantly, I have found a training family: a group of people who are constantly driving each other to get better. In Northern VA, its very easy to find a school that misses the point. Martial arts, in their basest and purest forms, are about caring for and protecting others. It's refreshing to find a school that finally gets it right. The instruction and knowledge are incredible, yet that only scratches the surface. There is a sense of community and camaraderie at FJJ that cannot be put into words. You have to come by and feel it for yourself. I've said it before, and I'll say it again now: FJJ is HOME & TEAM FJJ is FAMILY.
I started BJJ in 2009 and jumped around a few gyms before landing here. By far the facility is the largest I trained at, also the instructors are world class. But best of all it is a friendly environment with very humble students and teachers. Save yourself the search and come here first. Best Jiu-Jitsu school and also an amazing Muay Thai program, all you need to become a complete MMA fighter. Lastly, from all the schools I went to this is the only one that teaches students takedowns. Which is bizarre to me since all competitions start from your feet. That is probably why they usually take home the team trophy at local competitions. Come in and try a free class.
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.
