Happy 4th to all of our students and parents.

Here is a pic of our very first website back in 2004.

Notice the Black Fly Jiu Jitsu Comp logo. We put on the very first BJJ tournament in the state of Maine 2006 and again in 2007. We also offered a LightWeight Absolute division and a Heavyweight Absolute Division with each winner receiving a check for $500.

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.
