I'm moving down to Herndon, VA this week for a teaching job and I'm psyched because I get to trane UFC for the first time in my life.

I'm reaching out to any UGers in the area that train or have trained at any BJJ or MMA gyms they can recommend.

Thank you very much for any tips.

 That's just what I was thinking!? 


Seriously, check out Fairfax Jiu Jitsu/Yamasaki.  It's practically right there and the place is awesome.  

Are you a biggin or just a normal size person?

Watch you mouth talk about Pat Tray, fren. That dude is as legit as they come, i am a black belt now and he was kicking my ass and making me want to cry when I was a white belt. He is a stand up guy who cares about his students and always went out of his way to help me. I can't speak to how he runs his school right now, but don't run your mouth about him please. Phone Post

Great advice from the individuals who live in the NOVA area. You can't go wrong with FFX JJ, also Vanguard but that would be a hike for you.

ok JRock not for nothing but if it was a good school then why didnt you stay there? I mean let's not beat around the issue here. is this the place you would make your training home or not? there is no room for failure in this game as you know. no excuses is the the military motto so why not apply it to martial arts schools. trane right or dont train at all
