Da Firma Training Center Reviews

  • If you are in the Chesapeake, Great Bridge, DTC is the place to train Jiu-Jitsu. Professor Ricardo and his staff are very passionate about Jiu-Jitsu. The staff works and encourages you to work hard. It is not easy but in time and the more you attend class you will become better.

    All the students are helpful and encourage everyone to get better. I have been there since February 2016 and have never had a bad experience. Professor Ricardo brings in well known instructors to teach the class and for seminars.

    Highly recommend the DTC to train in Jiu- Jitsu and now they have Kickboxing. Give it a try and you will say I should have done this sooner. You will learn as you go to class. Everyone starts out as a beginner. Great place to work out, Highly recommend the DaFirma Training Center.

  • I have trained at countless schools and DFTC is by far at the top of my list! Aside from the warm welcoming vibe, it is clean, organized, and the staff is extremely professional. What I loved most was the comradely between everyone and the willingness to help each other get better. I learned so much and I can't wait to go back!

  • I have been training one day a week at this gym for a little over a year now for supplemental training. I am very impressed. The technical instruction is elite level from both of the black belts at da firma. Not only that, they also are big supporters of their students and the bjj community in general. The years of dedication to the gentle art is ever present when training in this facility. The facility itself is very clean and well maintained. This is by far one of the best places to train in Virginia.

  • I've been to only three classes, but in every single one I feel welcomed and that I'm really learning something that benefits me. While learning the moves, I'm also gaining strength and confidence. It's a fantastic place to be a part of, and I hope you all will join as well!

  • Very welcoming vibe at DTC and you'll get a great workout! In town for work and this gym was recommended to me. I am very happy with my decision to train here for the week.  Thanks Professor Ricardo!

  • Stopped by several Dojos searching for a place in VA to continue training since leaving IL. I joined DTC within 72 hours of attending a class. These instructors/professors are passionate and legit. I'm sure to hit my goals with these pros and excited to learn another Martial Arts from a new part of the world for me.

  • Professor Tubbs allowed myself and a couple other soldiers came and train at his academy when we were at anuial training for the summer. Got some good training in at a clean and professional academy. Would recommend it to anyone passing through or moving to the Norfolk VA beach area.

  • Just finished belt testing at Da Firma and it was great! The owner/instructors put a lot into the testing so it really feels transformative. Lots of people there to support as well, it was like an event. Great place.

  • I'm a below knee amputee and the day that I walked in to inquire about classes, Professor Jean Dalua Cartagena didn't even hesitate to answer that he would train me. That aside, I have learned that you can tell a lot about a business by the people who patronize it. And I realized quickly that the people that I met my first night in class were not simply students, but were a family. One I am now grateful and proud to say I am a member of.

  • DA Firma Training Center is great for everyone who wants to learn Brazilian Jiu Jitsu or just wants to get in shape. Ricardo and Prof. Dalua and awesome and they care about there students. They also take the extra time to answer any questions after class that the students have. The more experienced student there want to help you learn and motivate you and dont look down on the newer students. I love this place and would recommend it to everyone who wants to be part of a caring Jiu Jitsu family.
