Additional Information Rock-Jitsu BJJ Academy Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is one of the fastest growing sports in the world today. It is also a proven and practical form of self-defense that anyone can learn. As a result, advanced military and law enforcement personnel across the globe have adopted its techniques.

Many students first learn about jiu-jitsu through the great popularity of mixed martial arts (MMA) competition, where Brazilian jiu-jitsu (BJJ) technique is very prominent. Indeed, the beginnings of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) were largely tied up with proving the combat-efficiency of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.

The practice of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as a sport, however, is strongly separated from MMA. Daily classes do not feature kicking or punching. Rather, the focus is on safe and effective grappling technique.

As part of the prestigious Team Renzo Gracie, students that choose to train at Rock-Jitsu BJJ Academy have a special and direct connection to the famous Gracie lineage. It is our goal to foster a sense of trust, community and genuine love for Jiu-Jitsu. We teach in a safe, friendly, cooperative and controlled learning environment which fosters fun, camaraderie and respect. Rock-Jitsu BJJ Acadmey is a place to meet friends, not opponents.

In addition to training under the legendary Renzo Gracie at the Renzo Gracie Academy in NYC, our Head Instructor Stewart Carroll has trained extensively under John Danaher. John Danaher is currently on the Ultimate Fighter as a Head Coach for UFC Champ Georges St. Pierre, and is widely regarded as one of the foremost authorities on grappling in the world today.
