After relocating and leaving a school that I loved I had a really hard time finding a new home. I am extremely happy that I found Garden State Jiu Jitsu. Awesome group of guys consisting of all levels... Chris is an extremely talented coach and has a great system to break everything down. Keep in mind sometimes the BEST Jiu Jitsu players are NOT great coaches. Definitely not the case here. Everyone is extremely welcoming which is also ,unfortunately, not the case at all schools. You’ll never feel like you don’t fit in here. Whether you just want to get in shape, learn a new sport, or be the next world champion, you will get everything you need here. Hope to see you at a class soon. 👊🏼

I’ve trained jiu jitsu for three years consecutively, but took some time off this past year for a multitude of reasons. But, when Shawna invited me to come try out her gym, I was excited to get back on the mats. I’ve been lucky enough to train at some amazing schools and learn from very talented black belts, but Garden State Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy has got to be one of the most laidback and fun environments that I’ve gotten to roll. Everyone was incredibly inviting and I couldn’t get over how much every single person was laughing and enjoying themselves, even in the midst of seriously intense training. I can appreciate anyone who can check their ego at the door and leave it all on the mat while still genuinely enjoying themselves. I can’t wait to be back once I get back to full time training!

My daughter and I started training at GSBJJ about a year ago and we couldn’t be happier. Great coaches and atmosphere in the gym. Chris is approachable and knowledgeable and runs a first class program. I highly recommend Garden State BJJ to anyone interested in the sport.

I can’t say enough positive things about Garden State Brazilian jiu jitsu academy. My son started when he was 4 and has learned so much! The coaches are fantastic. They teach them so very much and it translates into all aspects of their lives as they continue to grow. They learn patience, and teamwork, how to listen, and the classes are fun! Thank you Coach Chris, Coach Gino, Coach Valencia, Coach Nick, Coach Pete and the rest of the team!! I wish I could mention you all, as you are all amazing. I can’t wait for my little one to start next.
