The Man Child is now a Blue Belt!
JP has been training since he was a little kid and has turned into an amazing young man-humble, respectful, and brave.
Only a handful of our kids have made it to Blue Belt where the minimum age for promotion is 16yo. An accomplished competitor in both BJJ and Wrestling, JP is also one of our amazing Youth coaches. Congrats!!

This is Professional Jiu Jitsu taught by Professional instructors. Our students are taught our world-class methodology by the most highly decorated instructors in MoCo.  The end result is we create better technique and afford our students a better understanding of the art.

EVERY kids & adult class is taught by one or more of our world class Black Belts. Very few academies in the country offer this level of technical expertise and professional environment.

If you want to learn from the very best in the art, this is the place to come in DC. You simply will not find a higher level of instruction or a more friendly group of people.
