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.
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.
I've wanted to do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai since I got out of the military 10 years ago, but never got around to it. I was worried about starting in my mid 30s because of the age and experience differences I would encounter having never done martial arts before. I finally signed up in September of 2016. My concerns were unwarranted. The coaches are great and make learning fun and stress free. They never hesitate to answer your questions or demonstrate a technique again when you didn't quite get it. There are students of varying ages and experience there as well. They have all been very welcoming and friendly, providing encouragement and help when drilling techniques or rolling. Fairfax Jiu Jitsu has become my home away from home and I find when I'm away on business I can't wait to get back to train! If you're interested in learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or Muay Thai, I highly recommend signing up for their free trial. I hope to see you out on the mat! Fairfax on 3! On Yoga: They have such a calming and peaceful atmosphere. Her classes have really helped with my flexibility, balance, breathing, and focus, which really compliment everything we do at FJJ. Saba's classes were really my first venture into yoga and she made learning it an easy and positive experience. I highly recommend everyone check it out if you haven't yet. You might be surprised how much you enjoy it!
