What is Fifty/50 BJJ?
Founded in 2008, the Fifty/50 Jiu-Jitsu Academy is the premier Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in the state of Virginia and is headed by world-renowned competitor and instructor, Ryan Hall.
The Fifty/50 Academy was formed with the intention of providing Falls Church, Virginia and the Washington, DC area with a progressive, top-level training ground for students of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts that can enrich the lives of people from all walks of life.
At Fifty/50, we train with the best and compete on the world level, constantly pushing ourselves to learn and grow physically, mentally, and technically as we stay on the cutting edge of our sport.
We look forward to meeting you!
Fifty/50 BJJ is based on the following ideals:
The Top Competitors: A part of the Marcelo Garcia Association and boasting a Competition Team that consists of regional, national, Pan American, and World champions as well as one of only a handful of American-born medalists from the ultra-prestigious Abu Dhabi Submission Fighting World Championship (ADCC), you know that you will be working alongside some of the best training partners that one could ask for.
Add in the veritable “Who’s Who” of top-level Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belts and UFC fighters visiting the Academy to train, teach, and learn on a regular basis and you have a truly unique environment.
The Best Instruction: With a program personally designed by world-renowned instructor Ryan Hall and implemented by the expert staff at the Fifty/50 Jiu-Jitsu Academy, Fifty/50 BJJ has shown time and again that it is an accelerated learning environment that is specifically structured to help students reach their full potential. Fifty/50 is proud to be one of the few academies in the area where ALL classes (including the kids program) are taught by a brown or black belt.
Ryan’s ability as an instructor has led to 7 best-selling instructional DVD series on a variety of his signature techniques [click here to order] and worldwide interest in seminar instruction. Always working diligently to develop himself and continue honing his skills, Ryan can sometimes be found in New York City at the Marcelo Garcia Jiu-Jitsu Academy or in Montreal at the world-renowned Tristar Gym as he continues learning and prepares for upcoming professional bouts.
The Finest Facilities: In February 2013, we moved into our new customized 6000 sq ft academy. At Fifty/50 Jiu-Jitsu, we take pride in having an immaculate facility that is meticulously maintained by our staff. We now offer 3000 sq ft of mat space, 500 sq ft of boxing/workout space, a spacious lobby and fully outfitted Men’s and Women’s locker rooms complete with showers.
In short, Fifty/50 is an environment unlike any other Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in the Washington, DC area. Does your training measure up?
