Training at Traditional Mixed Martial Arts Dojo has been an amazing experience. I trained for about 2 years and I have learned a ton. What is special about this style is that it is a complete system and this is what initially got me interested. I liked how it incorporates jiu-jitsu, karate-jitsu, judo and aikido all into one system so it prepares you for standing up and on the ground. What made my experience amazing was not only finding a great style but also finding a great Sensei. Training under Sensei Fletcher made all the difference. Having 36 years of experience, his dedication to the art and to training made my experience that much better. He teaches all the classes and is available during the day for one-on-one training. He stresses the importance of the small details in techniques and principles because he knows that those details make all the difference. Sensei teaches and prepares us for the street. As he says over and over again "in the street, there are no rules or referees". Pursing a career in law enforcement, it was the practicality and the reality based training that I fell in love with. Not realizing it when I first joined, I found out that Sensei Fletcher was a Certified Defensive Tactics instructor for police in Virginia, which has helped prepare me for my career even more. I could see (with my untrained eye) from the first time I observed a class that this dojo is very legitimate. It is hard to express in words how lucky I was to find this dojo and have the opportunity to train under my Sensei. Knowing that one day I will have to use what I am taught, due to the career I have chosen, I completely trust my life to it.
