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.
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 started BJJ in 2009 and jumped around a few gyms before landing here. By far the facility is the largest I trained at, also the instructors are world class. But best of all it is a friendly environment with very humble students and teachers. Save yourself the search and come here first. Best Jiu-Jitsu school and also an amazing Muay Thai program, all you need to become a complete MMA fighter. Lastly, from all the schools I went to this is the only one that teaches students takedowns. Which is bizarre to me since all competitions start from your feet. That is probably why they usually take home the team trophy at local competitions. Come in and try a free class.
