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.
Before coming to Fairfax Jiu Jitsu, I wanted to do Mixed Martial Arts and looking for the right studio was similar to a company looking for a new employee. Fairfax JJ had the best resume when I was doing my research. The training is great, the workout is hard, but I have a fun time doing it. I started Martial Arts training when I was 8 years old, but that training did not give me joy. At FJJ, I enjoy coming to class every day. The coaches will be there to mentor and guide you and give you direction to the highest level of detail. At previous Martial Arts studios, I met students that had a big ego and thought they were better than all. At Fairfax Jiu Jitsu there is no ego and there is a sense of family, community, and pride in taking care of each other. The coaches treat everyone the same whether you just started or have trained for years. I train in BJJ and Muay Thai; both programs are outstanding. Bottom line: If you want a great workout, training to learn great skills while having fun at the same time, Fairfax Jiu Jitsu is the place to go. It is a great investment.
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.
