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 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.
Fairfax Jiu Jitsu has been a home for me since April 30, 2014. I walked in with hardly any martial arts experience and didn't have any expectations other than getting a good workout. I tried a free BJJ class and the rest is history. Not only did I get a good workout, but all the students and instructors were very welcoming and very helpful. FJJ has become family to me. This is a school that you can trust to have your back and have your best interests in mind when it comes to your training and your own personal development. The culture here is very welcoming to any student whether they are a beginner or an expert because of their superior technical instruction, their personal interest in the growth of each student, and the values and principles that the instructors have established here that are beneficial on as well as off the mat. I'm proud to represent Fairfax Jiu Jitsu and be part of this family.
