March 2014 at Revolution BJJ brings the technical theme of escapes to all classes level 2 and above. If you can’t get out of a submission or escape a tough position in BJJ, you are done for. We’ll cover escapes from triangle chokes, armlocks, leglocks, side control, the mount, rear mount, knee on stomach, and lots more.
We have introductory programs getting started in gi, no-gi, and Muay Thai kickboxing. Visit here to find out more or to register. These programs have sold out consistently, so reserve your spot early!

This month in Muay Thai we are focusing on four-count combinations! We’ll utilize multiple punch- and kick-combos, integrating knees, elbows, and much more in fast-paced, challenging classes! All classes level 2 and up will follow the 4-count combination theme.
We are now reserving spots for our upcoming 8 week intro for Muay Thai Kickboxing that begins March 4th. For more info or to register, just go here.

All Level 2 and up BJJ classes at Revolution BJJ for the month of February 2014 will focus on passing the guard! Last month, we focused on guard maintenance, so this month is extremely timely. We’ll deal with very modern, recently evolved types of guard (including reverse De la Riva guard, berimbolos, and more modern forms of spider guard) as well as very fundamental basis, depending on the level of the class. Stay consistent and you’ll get a great deal out of this valuable theme!
If you’re new to jiu jitsu and would like to start training with us, please consider registering for one of our upcoming introductory programs. If you’ve been around for a while and would like to check out a class, just contact us to set it up!

January 25th, 2014 marked an enormous day for Revolution BJJ, the BJJ Revolution Team, and the jiu jitsu community in the Virginia area as five individuals joined the ranks of the elite: black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu! Four instructors at Revolution BJJ were promoted: Daniel Frank, Dan Staats, Vince Newton, and Keith Parknow, and Absolute Jiu Jitsu’s head instructor Dee Smith made five.
Promoted to brown belt: Fahs Wood, Mark Pushinsky, and Ben Winn.
Promoted to blue belt: Ryan Pope, Dylan Martin, and Jason “Tink” Steed. Huge congratulations to all 10 guys promoted, and a very big thanks to the 19 black belts in attendance, including head instructors of other gyms in the area.
Special thanks to “the Godfather of the BJJ Revolution Team“, Julio “Foca” Fernandez for not only seeing over the belt promotion ceremony, but also giving an epic 3-hour seminar on passing the guard!
An open mat that began at about 4:15 (immediately following the belt promotions) saw dozens of purple, brown, and black belts, and visitors from several different states in attendance. At 5 PM, a feast arrived, including buffet-style Chipotle, hand made spring rolls, and more desserts than anyone could eat, memorializing the day with the best ending imaginable! Huge thanks to everyone who made the trip out, and we look forward to making 2014 a great year at Revolution BJJ.
