Reasons To Try Our Programs

Here is some of the reasons why training at Loudoun BJJ is great for You:

Self Defense: You’ll learn how to defend yourself. You will discover how to dominate your attacker standing or transition the fight to the ground and subdue the attacker / finish the fight in a quick and decisive manner. Even if the attacker is much bigger or they managed to knock you down, you will feel comfortable fighting off your back by intelligently defending their strikes, easily reversing the position to be on top, or defeating your opponent with the use of chokes, joint manipulations, and/or strikes. BJJ is at the core of all of our programs and it is based on using superior leverage and body positioning to overcome bigger stronger attackers. It is undoubtedly one of the most effective martial art systems you will ever learn.

Fat Loss / Conditioning: BJJ and MMA are a martial arts that focus on total body conditioning - meaning that you’re using 100% of your body at all times to maximize its effectiveness. That means your cardio will get better along with your overall body strength, resulting in fat loss. While practicing at Loudoun BJJ you will work every single muscle in your body – doing that burns a lot of calories, which in turn burns a lot of fat. You’ll get in amazing shape while training with us. Just by coming to practice, learning and executing the techniques, your body will start to transform and your muscles will condition themselves to handle the training. You’ll notice your cardio and breathing getting better, your lungs will get stronger and you’ll feel your muscles get more toned. A bonus of all that is that not only will you feel better, you’ll look better… and people WILL notice.​​​

Functional Strength: You will strengthen and develop muscles you never even know existed! But don’t let that scare you…it’s a good thing! Because, instead of pure esthetics or vanity reasons (where people build mostly useless, bloated, and non-functional muscles) you’ll turn your muscle fibers into steel and will acquire real, functional strength by developing your stabilizers and flexors through combat-specific exercises. In the meantime, your body will still look fantastic. 

Mental Fortitude: It takes a degree of mental toughness to put yourself in uncomfortable positions at the mat. When someone is trying to control you, it can get even more uncomfortable – especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. However, by learning BJJ and applying the concepts, you’ll feel more in control of your body and your mind, and the uncomfortable positions will soon become no problem.

Stress Reduction: It’s a fact that regular exercise is not only healthy – it’s a key element in reducing stress in your life. A problem with plain-old “gym workouts” is that they usually get pretty boring – but not with BJJ training – with BJJ training, you’re in a positive environment of constant learning (which is another key element in stress reduction). You’re getting taught by our trained instructors to continually get better each and every time you step on our mats… and not only that, you’ll have coaches and teammates helping you along the way. So if you’ve had a stressful day, you can rest assured your stress levels will be reduced the minute you walk into our academy.

It’s FUN! Our students are having a blast while training at Loudoun BJJ. Let’s face it. Going to a regular gym can be boring, especially when you’re going through the same old routine day in and day out. Instead of having very little human interaction and walking from station to station or machine to machine like some kind of zombie, you’ll be able to actually learn something that: a) could save your life, b) is very dynamic, and c) promotes fun and constant learning. New exercises and techniques will be introduced at each practice to expand your arsenal of techniques and to constantly challenge your muscles.

FOR COMPETITORS: We are one of the most active international competitor schools in Loudoun county today. Our athletes not only travel the United States, but compete and dominate tournaments in Europe. If you need to get that extra push and a very supportive competitive framework, Loudoun BJJ always be there to help.
