Sam and Mark are two of the best jiu jitsu instructors I've had the pleasure of learning from. I've learned something from them every time I step on the mat with them, and I've laughed every class.
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.
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.
