From there is time to start our 5:00 pm Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class where each student will take part.  This class is an hour long so it give you plenty of time to run those dreaded after work earns, fight that awful traffic on Route 50 and 178 and just to get a little unwind time in for yourself.  Click on the button below to get more information and to sign your child up for this AWESOME program.

Team Randori has great instructors and learning environment! The First Responders Class is Awesome! It gives us a place to learn and train, as well as meet others in the same profession from all over the region, and get a great workout. I highly recommend coming in and checking out Team Randori!

Amazing experience! My 4 year old daughter loves coming to Randori and "working-out" with her friends. The staff is wonderful with kids and foster a warm and comfortable environment for learning. The teachers value respect and it shows through the kids. I highly recommend Randori for anyone who wants to give their kids a sense of self-confidence, and respect for others. They also give your child a trial period to see what it's all about. Come check it out!

The First Responder club held on Mon, Wed, and Friday mornings is great. The turn out is impressive with fire fighters and police from Anne Arundel, Prince Georges, Baltimore City and County.

My friend took me to a JiuJitsu class here, and it was amazing. I like going on Mondays when Carlos is there. He allows me to jump right in to the class, even with the very little experience, and was very patient and encouraging. The warm up itself is a workout, and I left the gym feeling energized and motivated. The great thing about jiujitsu it's that it provides you with self defense skills, discipline, and tactical thinking. Also, this gym has an fantastic after school program for kids! Definitely check out Team Randori!

We were looking for a new academy for our kids. Their first one closed and we weren't happy with the next one we went to, and then we found Team Randori. The facilities are top notch - everything is clean and new. The coaches are very good with kids, and are experienced practitioners who concentrate on building the fundamentals - not trying to teach overly complicated, trendy moves that kids can't effectively apply. Parents sit in a room upstairs where they can watch the class on video monitors, so there are no overzealous moms or dads yelling out commands to their kids while they roll. Perhaps most importantly, there are no 'cliques' - it's a very mellow, low key environment that promotes confidence in my kids, and has them looking forward to going to classes there.

Confidence, mental-toughness, and teamwork - these are the tools I have gained from joining Team Randori Martial Arts. After a few weeks, I felt like I was a part of a family amongst the staff and other members. The training was a challenge, but the coaches helped me recognize that I can train harder than I thought I was capable of. As a member of the military, I believe I can carry on these skills to my job. I am so thankful for my experience at Team Randori, for the lessons I have learned, the friendships I have made, and the training that I have received. I encourage others to check out this gym to see what an amazing community Team Randori has created.

Excellent place, my 5 year old son enjoyed it very much. He was so excited as soon as we got home after the first class, he started to practice as soon as we got home. My son started to practice with his dad, my husband has practiced Marital Arts for a long period of time, so he can tell this is the right place for our son, he find this place very professional. Instructors are well knowledge, patient, and make class fun. My son has been training for almost a year now, he is having fun while learning, they use different technique and make it fun at the same time.

I have never done anything like martial arts, and on a whim started attending Team Randori, and it has been amazing. Each session pushes me to new levels, and I am feeling healthier and more confident with every class. The Coaches, Al and Dameron are good people who you want to train with. When i was new there was never any feeling of not belonging. When I started I trained beside everyone else, and never felt out of place. Warm, welcoming, yet intense, is how I would describe it. My only regret is that it took me so long to join....

Coming from out of the area, I was not sure what to expect from this gym. I had little knowledge in regards to their reputation and the type of people that went to the gym since I wasn't from the area. Needless to say I was very impressed with the instructors knowledge, the cleanliness of the facility and the friendliness of the staff and students. I will definitely be stopping in again the next time I am in the area. Thank you Team Randori! - Austin

This place is great - we took our 4.5 year old boy and he had a lot of fun. The teachers were very patient and worked with him one-on-one. We'd recommend Team Randori : )

Team Randori Martial Arts is an awesome gym. Their team is very professional each instructor offering expert training in both personal and group settings. Their facility is clean and state of the art. They offer great programs for children like bully-proofing/self defense, after school daycare classes, and a popular summer camp program. I have been with Team Randori since they've opened up and I have seen and trained with many very skilled students and instructors to come through. Although the faces may occasionally change, their dedication to individual attention and the first class instruction of BJJ, MMA, self defense, and general fitness will always be their standard. Come check them out you will feel right at home.

Excellent gym to learn martial arts and to improve your fitness! The instructors are very professional and friendly, and I felt that I was well supported. I also noticed that other members were treated very respectfully. When I was not sure what to do other members stepped in to help me. The gym definitely has a great culture.

Awesome Jiu-Jitsu school! All of the instructors are very knowledgeable and take the time to drill the fundamental techniques and positions for the kids class so they have a solid base to build upon as they progress in the sport. My 6 year old son has been going for 6 months now and loves it. I can already see a difference from when he first began. Highly recommend!
