I've been training BJJ, Muay Thai, and MMA at Fairfax for about a year and a half. The thing that I've noticed the most is that my skills have improved greatly ever since I started . I attribute this to the excellent instructors. Their curriculum and class structure is well thought out, and their approach is geared towards training smart in order to get the most out of every session. They also have a great facility and a wealth of solid training partners of all skill levels. I recently had my first MMA fight and I was surprised at how prepared I felt, both physically and mentally. I would definitely recommend Fairfax Jiu Jitsu to anyone looking to start or continue their martial arts journey.
Coming to train at Fairfax Jiu Jitsu is by far head and shoulders above any other establishment in the Northern Virginia area. First of all, every student (and I do mean every student) is given the opportunity to excel, advance and achieve. This is not a statement I could make lightly. Since I am slightly older than most of the students here, I really did not know where I would fit in but from my first introduction at Fairfax Jiu Jitsu, I knew that this would be the place where I could see and seek constant improvement. Coach Mark and Coach Sam put the safety and welfare of each student first and reinforce that code with constant vigilance. The striking program (Muay Thai) that I enrolled in is under the direction of Coach Bill and Coach Matt. Coach Bill and Coach Matt recognizes the different levels and abilities of each person and are dedicated to getting the best performance out of each student. Their approach to Muay Thai is not a cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all program. Again, since I am an older student, I appreciate the fact that I can and do train with others that are better, more skilled and more knowledgeable than I. This is where real growth and improvement can and does takes place and Coach Bill and Coach Matt will make sure that constant improvement will always be your goal. As long as you, the student, have the drive, dedication, mind-set and an open attitude to be coached and directed, you will never plateau. The environment created by Fairfax Jiu Jitsu, the coaches and students is free of attitudes, egos and puffed-up personalities. The support among your peers is sincere and reinforcing -- getting out of your 'comfort zone' is encouraged and recognized. For me, it is a pleasure to be in a group of hard working and hard charging individuals and the best part of my day is the time when I am training here at Fairfax Jiu Jitsu.
Fairfax Jiu Jitsu features an excellent kids program. Mark Jones runs fun and entertaining classes but the kids stay focused and give a lot of effort. Mark works well with a variety of personalities (my son tends to be pretty quiet) and invests in the progress of each individual student. This is a professional business with a top notch facility.
