Rodrigo Gracie made another visit to Capital Jiu-Jitsu this weekend, teaching Gi, No Gi and Mixed Martial Arts classes at CJJ Loudoun and CJJ Old Town. The seminars were full of great tips and techniques, and Rodrigo generously arrived early to devote some time to working with CJJ's MMA fighters, even cornering the fighters in Fredericksburg. Congrats to all the new blue belts and to Andy Smith on receiving his purple belt from Rodrigo.
Capital Jiu-Jitsu Fighters went undefeated in Mixed Martial Arts this weekend at Chaos in the Cage in Fredericksburg VA. Roland and Sean made their MMA debuts winning decisively by TKO and KO respectively. In the main event, Iman fought to a draw in her final amateur fight against a very tough opponent. Dozens of CJJ family-members made the drive from the Washington DC area to support the fighters, which made for an exciting night of MMA.
Special thanks to Rodrigo Gracie for making the trip to Fredericksburg and all his extra help.

CJJ & Fight Gone Bad Fundraiser III Fundraiser 9.27.08
Each year CrossFit has a worldwide competition and fundraiser called a Fight Gone Bad to raise money for two charities, Athletes for a Cure - a fundraising and awareness program of the Prostate Cancer Foundation - and Wounded Warrior Project - dedicated to raising awareness and enlisting the public’s aid for the needs of severely injured service men and women, helping severely injured service members aid and assist each other and providing unique, direct programs and services to meet their needs. A Fight Gone Bad workout consists of five exercises, performed for one minute each, with one-minute breaks given after all exercises have been completed. This grueling five-station rotation is then repeated three times per person.
This year, Capital Jiu-Jitsu, the premiere school of Martial Arts and Fitness in the Northern Virginia/Southern Maryland area, is organizing a team to participate in the Fight Gone Bad workout in hopes of raising $40.000 for the Wounded Warrior Project and Athletes for a Cure.
Capital Jiu-Jitsu held its second annual team picnic on July 20th at Burke Lake Park.

Even with two locations in Northern Virginia and hundreds of men, women and children training everything from Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Self-Defense and Mixed Martial Arts, to Yoga, CrossFit and She'Safe Women's Self-Defense, CJJ feels like a large family. And, if you missed the fun this year, don't worry - there's always something going on at CJJ.
