Absolutely love the welcoming environment, instruction and facilities of this place. After a week trial we knew we wanted to join this gym. I joined, and my 9 year old joined. The fact that he actually smiles and has fun here, tells me all I need to know about this place. Excellent instructors, who genuinely care about their students. If you are on the fence about trying them out, give the week trial a shot. No commitment. I promise you it will be worth it.

The Mount is a safe place for those that want to train Jiu-jitsu or MMA. The coaches are patient, kind, they really have the passion to teach and they want to be sure you are truly understanding the class teachings without feeling rushed or flustered! My daughter has been training with Coach Jim for a couple years, she feels extremely comfortable and safe around him! He has helped her gain a lot of confidence in sparring as well! She is the reason I started the BJJ and MMA classes. The Mount offers Women's only classes that is actually taught by a woman! She is a black belt which is freaking amazing! She is a beast at her craft but she is also so great at teaching it!

The Mount offers morning classes as well that actually allows me to get some training in since most weekday evenings I am not able to make classes!

If you are looking for a forever home gym this is the place!!!

The Mount is great! The coaches are very knowledgeable and great with teaching kids. The Mount has given my daughter a boost in confidence that she previously did not have. They preach hard work,respect, and self-discipline. The mount is my daughter and I's favorite place to go!

Highly recommend! You are going to develop an outstanding understanding of jiu-jitsu/mma taught at this gym. Not only are the owners/educators skilled at a level of excellence themselves, but also in their methods of teaching. The gym also hosts a great sense of community, and is overall a great place for the whole family to be a part of. Don’t miss out!

Cannot recommend this place highly enough. I’ve trained for several years at many schools and Mount Airy is hands down my favorite gym ever. Friendly family atmosphere, new, state of the art training surfaces, immaculately clean, and some of the best and most technical coaching in the entire DMV. The mount feels more like a family than a gym. Childrens, kids, womens self defense, BJJ, judo, and MMA. no matter your experience level, you’ll love it here

Can't say enough positive things about this academy, but I will share what has stood out to me that sets The Mount apart from everywhere else I have trained:

(1) Comprehensive grappling academy. It's not often you can find an academy that will present students grappling in the context of BJJ, No-Gi submission grappling, MMA, wrestling, and Judo. This is a one-stop-shop for everything right here. Instead of arguing over which “style” is the best, at The Mount we are taught that Judo and Jiu-jitsu are best learned as one (as it should be).

(2) Quality of instruction. We've had grapplers of the highest level come to give seminars at the academy at very reasonable prices: Bernardo Pitel, Dean Lister, Olympic Judoka Nicholas Delpopolo (just to name a few). It's reassuring that all the instructors are committed to keeping up with what works at the highest level and are keeping up with the ever-evolving sport of submission grappling.

(3) Community engagement. I LOVE that every month Laura Eyler (black belt) provides a women-only self-defense seminar FREE OF CHARGE to the community. Our town of Mt. Airy is lucky to have an academy that invests so much into empowering women.

(4) Quality of training partners. The open mat rounds are fantastic— I’ve gotten great rounds with many people who will push you and keep you honest, but also take care of you in the process. My training partners have competed in Muay Thai, Buhurt, submission grappling, MMA, Judo, Greco-Roman wrestling, and folkstyle wrestling. I’ve gotten many “looks” here and I have felt myself improve as a result.

(5) Two locations to train: Mt Airy and Urbana!

I'm grateful to the instructors and the community they have built. Thank you.

This is the first Jiu jitsu gym I’ve ever been a part of and I couldn’t be happier with the experience. My son and I train here 3-4 days a week and both the adults and the kids classes are amazing and the coaching staff is top notch. Cannot recommend The Mount highly enough to anyone and everyone looking to get into Jiu jitsu, Judo, or MMA.

The Mount BJJ & MMA is excellent! The mats are always spotless, they offer many classes to help fit your schedule, and the instruction is amazing. The staff genuinely cares about your growth, and the positive, supportive atmosphere is clearly reflected in the attitudes of the students. No intimidation- just hard work, learning, self-improvement, and a lot of fun. Highly recommend The Mount to anyone!
