Fairfax Jiu Jitsu has changed my life! I joined the BJJ program at FJJ in June 2011 with no prior martial arts experience. Within a few months of attending class two nights per week: I was in better shape than a decade earlier as a college athlete; I returned to being a competitive athlete; I was constantly learning practical self-defense skills that I as a petite women could use against an attacker of any size; and my self-confidence and motivation improved which led to positive changes throughout my life. A few years later, FJJ has become my second home and I am now competing in BJJ at top-levels. The class format at FJJ caters to students of all ages and interest levels (physical fitness, self-defense, and competitive athlete), so every student is able to work at their own pace and towards their personal goals. The atmosphere is friendly, fun loving, hardworking, supportive, and has a level of camaraderie I have not experienced with past teams. No matter how tough my day has been prior to arriving at FJJ to train, I always leave with a smile on my face. Both the adult and children’s programs at FJJ are top-notch. I wholeheartedly recommend attending a trial class at FJJ. It may change your life too.
