Our Clients Say it Best
  • David TestimonialMy son (10) trained at Vanguard for about a year and a half. It was an amazing experience for our entire family. I knew this place was different than many other gyms as soon as I saw the "leave the ego at the door" sign. The level of professionalism from all of the coaches was by far the best I have ever seen. Coach Doug and Jenny run a top notch program. Coaches Christian, Blaze, Reed and Luis all provided a level of training and patience with children this father of 4 struggles with every day. If it were not for work moving us, we would be a part of the Vanguard Family for many years to come. If you are even considering another gym for MMA/BJJ/Thai Boxing/Cross Fit and much much more, stop looking. The place you need to be at is Vanguard. Thank you all for opening your doors to us. We look forward to following you guys on the mat and in the cage via FB.–David Brown

  • vanguard gym reviewI have been training at Vanguard Gym since the day it opened almost {7} years ago. The atmosphere and coaches are top notch. As a police officer in Northern VA, martial arts training is very important. The Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai programs are the best in the area and I can honestly say that the training I have received at Vanguard Gym has saved my life on the street several times.

  • Jim Beck TestimoialI have trained at other gyms in Virginia, and I have trained in a wide variety of martial arts throughout my life. Vanguard Gym is with out a doubt the best place I have trained!! The facility is really second to none. It is well equipped and very spacious. All that aside, the reason why I choose to train at Vanguard is Doug and his staff!! Doug's highly decorated service in the Marine Corps, his vast knowledge of self defense, and his impeccable skills in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu create a synergy that will be hard to find in other gyms around the country, let alone NoVA. Doug's staff is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, professional, and, above all, genuine!! A person can gauge another person's character traits by evaluating the people he or she surrounds themselves with. Doug has surrounded himself with, and staffed Vanguard Gym with, exceptionally moral and honorable men and women. They are the type of people that always make the right decisions, even when nobody is looking. They are people that you would be honored to call a friend. So, if you are looking to learn from the best, have access to an exceptional facility, and be surrounded by great people, I highly advise you to join the Vanguard team!!–Jim Beck

  • Jim Miller TestimonialThere is none better in NOVA, from the serious MMA fight training, to the more relaxed "stay-in-shape" fitness activities. Vanguard Gym Rocks!–Jim Miller
