    I'm relocating to DC/Arlington in a few weeks and am wondering if anyone trains at Mario Yamisaki's DC school or Royce Gracie's northern Virginia school.

    Thanks for the input.

    I've trained at neither one, and I didn't know Yamasaki had a school in DC. I have visited Capital JJ, and from what I understand, none of the Gracie's have ever been there. They do have a nice framed picture, of Helio, though. I thought it was pretty lax, when I went there. I would go with Lloyd Irvin in Arlington. I took Muay Thai there, and I think it is the best place around the DC/Metro area. But check out the places for yourself, when you get here.

    One spirit martial arts in herdon is a pretty good school. We have Master Pedro Sauer. Its not just an affiliate school, Pedro actual teaches there M-F.

    Herdon may be a little far for you but IMO its the best instruction your gonna get.

    Pedro Sauer is no doubt the best instructor in the entire state of Virginia. But is not consistent in teaching there, many times he will have a brown belt teach or have the the higher belts teach moves. Check out both and see what you like, Capital is a good school and Yamasaki is good as well. Salvatore is a monster and an excellent instructor (Yamasaki). I'd stay away from Lloyd Irvin for several reasons I don't feel like going over, do a search.
