Have been there three months so far. The head instructor Lou is extremely professional and welcoming. The atmosphere is very supportive, members all strive to help each other learn and grow as Jiu Jitsu martial artists. I originally joined to get into shape and lose some weight. In doing so, I have found BJJ to be both physically AND mentally interesting, fortifying, strengthening, as it tests your capacity to learn and grow in multiple dimensions. Would recommend to anyone.

Professor Lou’s teaching style is excellent, and he really takes his time to give everyone individual attention when there’s something that can be corrected in your game. Great atmosphere, everyone is helpful, humble, and respectful. Honestly one of my favorites places to be on any given day.

I have learned so much in such a short amount of time, I’m moving my body more than I have in a while, and my stress levels are way down. It’s a great physical and mental workout. 11/10 recommend!!

What would a first free BJJ class be like?

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class starts with a light stretch and warm-up. A lesson and concept are taught with very helpful details that make it easy for anyone to understand. We then pair up and practice the techniques. New students are paired up with more experienced students to help them along. In the White Belt Beginner Martial Arts Classes at our Bergen County academy, new students only drill the techniques until they're comfortable enough to spar.

Most people are surprised by how friendly and welcoming everyone is at PJJ, making your first Bergen County Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class an enjoyable experience. If you are looking for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes near you, then please contact us for a free class today.
