Northern Virginia Premier BJJ

First, I would like to tell you about our mission:

Our mission is to develop a new lifestyle while teaching Martial Arts in a safe and comfortable environment.

Our programs are based on the most effective and exciting styles of martial arts.  We offer training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Muay Thai, Wrestling, Judo, Sambo, Boxing, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), Women Self Defense, Kids Martial arts and After School program.

We are specialized in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is grappling art that was popularized in America by the legendary Gracie family after the stunning performance presented by Royce Gracie on the first 4 Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) shows.

This training system known as “The Gentle Art” concentrates on controlling your opponents by using angles, leverage, and superior body positioning, in a way that you can control your opponent without having to hurt him with punches and kicks. For this reason, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is nowadays the most used martial art in law enforcement.

Our BJJ system provides tools where a small person can have an advantage over a much larger opponent. That is why this system is well known as the most effective martial art in the world.

We also offer Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) is the national sport of Thailand. It was originally developed as defense against enemy nations and has since become popular for being simple and extremely effective.  Muay Thai is the standup training most used by Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competitors worldwide. Training in Muay Thai will develop students both physically and mentally.  Unlike kickboxing, Muay Thai makes use of all the body’s weapons including punches, elbows, knees and kicks. Techniques taught (offensive and defensive) are learned quickly and are able to be used in a short amount of time.

Our Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) program is the combinations of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ), Muay Thai and No Gi grappling.

Our BJJ and Muay Thai programs are recommended for anyone who is looking for:

·             Self-defense

·             Stress relief

·             Strength / conditioning

·             Cardio Vascular fitness

·             Increased concentration

·             Increased flexibility and reflexes


I can guarantee that you will be satisfied with our programs.

Total body conditioning is also our priority.  We have developed specific programs to attend different needs.  Some of the areas we focus on include increasing cardio endurance, strength, power, flexibility, speed and of course – losing weight.

Competition is highly encouraged and supported for those who like to test their skills.  Our Competition Team focuses on the major tournaments both national and international levels.

We are always working to improve our facility with better equipment and by adding new programs based on the needs of our students.

Our staff is our most valuable asset.  We have qualified people who are truly passionate about what they teach.

“I started training with Dalla when I was a white belt. He promoted me to blue, purple, brown, and black. Having someone of Dalla’s skill level and teaching ability is a dream come true for Virginia. Many people throughout America don’t have access to a BJJ black belt in their area and would die for the chance to train with someone of Dalla’s level. If you live in the Woodbridge or Crystal City area I would pick up the phone and call Dalla right now to set up an introductory lesson. Come to get into shape, learn self defense, and learn the wonderful art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. It has had a HUGE impact on my life and I’m sure it’ll change your life as well. You just have to give it a try. I hope you make the smart decision and become a part of our team.”

“Master Leo Dalla is awesome! Northern Virginia is very lucky to have Dalla teaching the most effective martial art in the world — Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu! He is a highly motivating instructor and everyone has a great time in class. I can’t thank Master Dalla enough for helping me meet my goals in martial arts and in life. With his instruction and attention to detail I’m on my way to earning my BJJ black belt! I highly recommend his classes to anyone in the area looking to learn self defense, get in great shape, or to become a competitive martial artist.”

– Jeff Ruth

“I’ve been training at Dalla’s school for a few months now and it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. The class is rewarding not only for the physical conditioning and expert training I receive, but also the camaraderie I’ve developed with my teammates and instructors. Prior to joining, I did some research on the different schools in the area. After reading about Dalla’s experience and of his many accomplishments, I was amazed at the stroke of luck of having a world-class instructor right here in my own backyard. His curriculum involves a unique combination of instructional training, Jiu-Jitsu techniques, and sparring. The ability to train and spar with teammates from different martial arts backgrounds and skill levels is extremely motivating and has helped me improve on my own skills. Those serious about training should definitely consider the opportunity to do so with one of the best in the world.”
