WARNING! We are NOT…
a franchise that hires freelance martial arts students to teach its classes
a renamed Karate or traditional martial arts school
a throw-on-the-gloves and beat-on-each-other-club for street fighters
a big box gym that holds some “kickboxing” or “fight” classes
If you are looking for something like that, our school is probably not the place for you. On the other hand, if you want top-notch training, a family-friendly team atmosphere, and a professional facility, you need to try out our program.

Now I Got a Perfect Balance of Everything!
Ben comes from a background in traditional martial arts and was looking for something different when he enrolled at our Baltimore Mixed Martial Arts School. He began training when Crazy 88 was renting out a 600 square foot room at a local fitness gym and has seen the school grow to its current 6000 square foot location. Ben was also there to witness the expansion of the Crazy 88 BJJ schedule from when it consisted only of three Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes a week to the current 7 Days a Week, 18 hours a Day form.
Within the last year, Ben enrolled his daughter into the Childrens Martial Arts program. Despite not even being regular school yet, she can already perform many real self-defense techniques and also has lots of fun socializing with the other students in the class.
Ben is also an avid competitor and has fought in pretty much everything — BJJ tournaments, No-Gi, and just recently, he won his first Muay Thai smoker bout by 2nd round KO.
Mike is a veteran of the US military having served four years as a member of the Marine Corps. Currently working in the finance sector, he is a very busy individual, often traveling from Maryland to New York and back in the same day. Yet Mike still makes time to come in and get his martial arts training in. Mike focuses primarily on Muay Thai Kickboxing and is currently training for his first amateur smoker bout.
Mike loves the friendliness of the other students as well as the solid rapport between the coaching staff and the students. After all, its not just the techniques that keep people training but the relationships they build. We are proud to have Mike as part of our family.

Who Are We?
Crazy 88 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a 6000 sq. ft. Martial Arts facility located conveniently between Baltimore and Columbia Maryland. We specialize in teaching:
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) – Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and a form of self-defense that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique — most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense.

I started taking Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Crazy 88 in May 2009 at the age of 41, having never done anything athletic in my life, much less a competitive martial art. Little did I know that Crazy 88 would quickly become my home away from home, and its members my extended family.
Crazy 88 Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is Columbia MD and Baltimore, MD's Team Lloyd Irvin Training Center. We are the ONLY Mid-Atlantic Team to have members competing at the highest levels in Mixed Martial Arts, Submission Wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
