I recently moved to D.C for work. I wanted to find a great Gym with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Team Randori in Annapolis Maryland by far exceeded all of my expectations of a gym. I have tried many gyms before but those gyms did not have what I was looking for including a friendly environment. From day I felt like I was home. The Coaches and students welcomed me with open arms. This gym at time felt too good to be true. This is a great family gym which also includes an awesome kid friendly environment. I am moving again for work but once I come back to the area, I have every intention on getting back on the mats with all of the coaches and students. If I could give this gym 10 stars I would. Stop in and check this place out.
Thank you everyone at team Randori for giving me a life changing experience.
This is a top notch BJJ school in Annapolis! The instructors are friendly and very welcoming. Whether you’re a beginner or well advanced in your skills this is a place you have to check out. *Bonus* - very clean gym!
No other martial arts gym in the area even comes close. The training techniques, the coaching, the community are all first class.
You are not too old and your kids are not to young to start. You owe to yourself.. JOIN!
I have been training with Team Randori for 4 months now as a white belt. My experience thus far has been outstanding. Al and company have built a school for all belts and all ages.. Truly, an academy where young and old alike can learn and grow without the burden of ego and pressure. Good people and leadership in a very clean environment. Sick of the gym and running laps? Come roll. It will take your fitness to another level...it has for me.
Our daughter really loved it. We loved the friendly courteous staff. Wish we could have continued but unexpectedly moving out of state. Thank you for the wonderful experience I'm sure that I'll daughter will never forget
Team Randori is an awesome gym to train at. They not only emphasize the importance of cleanliness and safety -- they practice what they preach. They're the only place I've seen that is upfront with their costs, and how they operate their gym. The floors are cleaned daily which other gyms don't always seem to do.
The Jiu jitsu and MMA coaches are great, and really know the sport. They're great at demonstrating and teaching the techniques, and after you get the hang of it, they help you make those small adjustments to really perfect your technique.
The MMA and Jiu Jitsu classes are a fun way to get in shape while learning a really cool skill. You don't have to be experienced to participate in class. The classes have people from all skill levels, and you get to work with everyone there to learn from multiple people. They also let beginners watch and participate in the advanced classes if they so choose and attend as many classes as you please. Other gyms tend to limit how often you can attend and limit advanced classes to upper belts only, but not Team Randori.
They have a great environment and atmosphere there, and the other members are really friendly.
I highly recommend checking out Team Randori.
Team randori has took me in with very little knowledge and excepted me no one was laughing or judging when i was having a hard time getting stuff down actually everyone was trying to help me to the best of thier knowledge strongly recommend them great experience
This is the best MMA and BJJ training here in Maryland. My son was so fit into this academy program and i feel bad because we had to move. When you join this academy , it is like a family. Many thanks to coach Kirby for shaping up my little man. On the another note, Al is also the best and makes you feel involved. We will forever remain "Team Randori". Thank you
Best jui jitsu gym in the area! Great coaches, lots of classes, exceptionally clean! I've been training here for over three years, and I've been to other gyms all over the country... Nothing even comes close! Osss!
The best Martial Arts Academy In the area. Great, experienced instructors always make you feel welcomed and like a part of the family. I love training here in the safe environment and learn a lot. I do MMA and BJJ everyday and can’t wait to get to the Academy to train and see my teammates.
I have been attending Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes at Team Randori for about a year, and have no complaints. This is a clean, safe, and respectful environment to obtain top notch instruction. The coaches are well-qualified and welcoming to all students, whether their goals are directed towards fitness, self defense, competition, or recreation. I would strongly recommend Team Randori to anyone looking for legitimate high-quality martial arts instruction in the DMV area.
Team randori is a great family oriented learning experience. I wasn't able to train for a long life, but the classes I did attend they were very kind and helpful. The isntructors are amazing and know what they are teaching, you get everything by coming here!
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!
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.
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.
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
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....
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
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.
