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.
I once knew nothing about the many different forms of martial arts and I honestly have nothing to compare Fairfax Jiu Jitsu to, but I strongly believe it is the people who can make or break any kind of establishment. Needless to say, it is everyone here, from the managers to the students in the [I'm not telling you what I took!] class, that make this place amazing. Classes will challenge you, you will learn, and you'll enjoy it all. I think I found my 2nd family.
I have been training at FJJ for 7 months, starting with the Striking Elements training. This is a truly outstanding community of coaches and students. They have created a culture of hard work and mutual support. They ask you to train with "no excuses, no shortcuts" which is a great daily reminder to not explain away a shortcoming but to keep doing the work of learning, practicing, and improving. Everyone is encouraged, and is given the tools needed to achieve their best. Can't say enough about the coaches: they are accomplished martial artists and friendly, effective teachers of their art.
