"I train at Dave Jacobs BJJ because it feels like home. I spent years moving from gym to gym due to a military lifestyle, and after being invited to Dave's from former training partners and friends, I felt immediately accepted and welcome. The community is just that, a social collective of the best and brightest individuals who share a common passion for a sport that brings them together. The immediate inclusion to such a wonderful group has given me the joy I searched for while practicing my favorite martial art."Eric F. / Blue Belt
"One of the things that drew me to David "The Rock" Jacobs Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy was the diversity of the membership—men and women, high level competitors and casual martial artists, all working together to improve their jiu-jitsu. I want high level instruction and I want to train hard, but I also want to train with people that prioritize their training partner's safety over their ego. I'm happy to say I found that at Dave's academy."Colin D. / Purple Belt
"I had been on a 2 year hiatus from BJJ when I started trying out gyms in the DMV. Aside from the instruction being great, the etiquette at The Rock BJJ really stood out to me. It made getting back in the gym a lot easier because I felt safe with my new training partners."Albert C. / Blue Belt
"Training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under the careful instruction of Dave “The Rock” Jacobs changed my life. Jiu jitsu helped me overcome insecurities and fears, and gave me that extra sense of self confidence that I didn’t even realize I was missing. The culture that Rock cultivates among his students is nothing short of accepting and inspiring and I loved coming to classes where I learned more than just a new jiu jitsu technique. "Adrienne A. / Purple Belt
"David is one of those rare breed of martial artists who combines intelligence with skill, hard work determination and above all respect! It is no surprise to me that he is internationally recognized as a competitor, coach and referee. My group is based in the UK and we are proud to have him as our technical director sharing his knowledge with us at seminars and the like. "David "Malandro" Onuma / Black Belt / Head Instructor at CFS BJJ in London, U.K.
