Fairfax Jiu Jitsu has one of the finest kids martial arts programs in the country; it really is second to none. Mark Jones, the primary instructor for the kids program, is an amazing kids coach and a seasoned competitive black belt who still knows how to bring home medals in international competition. FJJ is not just for kids though, their MMA team, lead by Bill Easlick, is a great place for the serious fighter to get into the game. It is also a great place for the rest of us to get into fighting shape. With excellent facilities, top notch instructors, and fully stocked store with all the gear you need on site, FJJ is the place to train.
My son joined the Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program at FJJ in 2010. He has spent more time at FJJ than any other place besides home and school, so his coaches have played an important role in his development, not just as an athlete, but as a person. FJJ has become such an integral part of Nick’s life, that even after moving farther away, we never had a second thought about where he should continue to train and grow. The facility is big and clean with a lot of air circulating which I appreciate as a spectator not participating in the training. The parents are friendly and well behaved; you won’t see parents yelling from the sideline at their children or other children. If they come in yelling in the beginning, they quickly learn that FJJ doesn’t promote or tolerate that type of environment. But what impresses me the most is how the instructors manage the balance of discipline, challenge, and fun in the classes. You won’t see kids running around screaming and out of control, except for after class when they have some free time to play, but in class they are focused and working hard, even the little ones. They promote mentorship which helps the older kids feel responsible for helping the younger kids and the younger kids look up to the older kids. It creates an environment where the children learn that it is not just about themselves, but about helping each other grow. Since the first day Nick joined FJJ, BJJ has been his passion. It has taught him to win and lose gracefully, be respectful, stay humble, work hard, and set priorities. The skills he has learned on the mat has transferred to life outside of FJJ. He is competitive on the mat and just as competitive in his class to get good grades, he is respectful to his parents and his teachers, and he stands up for kids who can’t stand up for themselves without getting in a physical altercation. Over the past five years, he has grown physically and mentally strong. He cares about his team mates and FJJ has become more like a family than a place to train. The dedication and commitment from the Instructors grow stronger every year as does the program. We are very satisfied parents and are extremely glad to have found Fairfax Jiu Jitsu.
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.
