COVID-19 Advisory

This message is for the members of the NYC Midtown Academy located at 224 West 30th Street. Please contact your local academy directly for questions or concerns.

Dear Renzo Gracie Academy members,

March 17, 2020

Yesterday morning, the NYC Governor’s Office mandated the closure of all gyms. 

We are heartbroken, knowing this will impact the community of members and staff that we have collectively worked so hard to build. 

While we remain committed to doing our part in reducing the spread of COVID-19, we also remain committed to supporting our community during this difficult time. 

We have decided to make the Renzo Gracie Online Academy completely free for the next 30 days (subject to extension) where we will be live-streaming BJJ classes every weekday at 6 pm EST. The same live-streams will also be available on Renzo’s Instagram page @renzograciebjj

Our online platform currently houses over 600 lessons, and we will make a sincere effort to record many more and add live seminars as often as possible. 

This is the least that we can do for our community.

You can stay up-to-date as the situation develops by following our Academy Instagram page @renzogracieacademy. You can also contact us with any questions or concerns at [email protected].

Thank you for your support and understanding during this time of uncertainty–we appreciate each and every one of you. 

~ The Renzo Gracie Team
