BJJ Schools in NY, Anyone?

Heya T-Fighters. I’ve been out of martial arts for a while now but I’ve got the urge to kickstart the choke-out training again. Anyone know of a good, spar-oriented BJJ school around the NYC/Long Island area? Thanks.

I’m not from New York but I know that Renzo Gracie’s school is in Manhattan. My coach is a black belt under Renzo and goes to NYC several times a year to train with him. It’s a bit pricey but it’s one of the best jiu-jitsu schools in the country.

check out Anderson’s Martial Arts located downtown. Call information or check out web page at andersons martial arts dot com (omit spaces). good luck!

You have some of the best academies outside of Brazil/South California in NYC - Renzo’s and the Machados as well as several others. Check out Renzo’s for some good bjj/nhb training.
