A Chat with Fairfax Jiu Jitsu
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We teach the worlds most effective martial arts within a unique team culture. Each student's #1 mission is to get the person next to them better, to be a great training partner at all times. Within this collaborative environment, human growth potential skyrockets. FJJ is much more than a just a gym.
What's one tip for first-time students that will make them feel like veterans?
Relax, parents! We have a training process and methodology that works. Not only are we professional instructors and trainers, we are parents, too!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We've been training, competing, and teaching in Northern Virginia since the late 90's developing our skills and learning how (and how not) to teach Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, MMA, and other modern martial arts effectively and run a great school. In 2007, we opened our own academy and haven't looked back.
What do you love most about your job?
It is an absolute joy to watch our kids and adults grow as martial artists and as people. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing light bulbs of understanding go off above students' heads on a daily basis. That passion to help our team achieve gets us up in the morning.
