I was originally referred to FJJ by a friend and quickly understood why. The excellent instructors/owners have created a top flight academy with a positive and constructive atmosphere. From the very first day, despite a large group with deep experience levels, I never felt like an outsider. On the contrary, I immediately felt like “one of the students”.
Since then, my BJJ game has grown consistently each week. Most importantly, I have found a training family: a group of people who are constantly driving each other to get better.
In Northern VA, its very easy to find a school that misses the point. Martial arts, in their basest and purest forms, are about caring for and protecting others. It’s refreshing to find a school that finally gets it right. The instruction and knowledge are incredible, yet that only scratches the surface. There is a sense of community and camaraderie at FJJ that cannot be put into words. You have to come by and feel it for yourself. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again now:
FJJ is HOME & TEAM FJJ is FAMILY.
