If you go out of town, you can freeze your membership at no cost. All you have to do is fill out a “freeze form” at the academy* and provide us with a return date. Your membership payments will automatically go into effect upon your return date.
*Freeze forms are not available online at this moment (they are coming soon). Until then, you must fill one out at the academy.
We offer private classes in both BJJ and Muay Thai. Please note that Master Renzo Gracie does not give private lessons. To take private lessons with Prof. John Danaher, please select that option from our contact form dropdown. Click here to be redirected to our contact page.
Please call our academy if you’re interested in booking a private class with any of our other instructors.
You are not obligated to wear a rash guard under your Gi but it’s highly recommended. We have rash guards for sale at the academy.
No, you may not train without a belt. We kindly ask that you train in a complete uniform. We rent belts for $5.
Yes, we do have showers and antibacterial soap in each stall. Feel free to bring your own toiletries and towel. We also rent shower towels for $3.
We open at 6:40am and close at 9:30pm Monday-Friday. On Saturdays we open at 8:30am and close at 3pm. We are closed on Sundays but our members are allowed to train in our Williamsburg academy (RGFA).
If he’s not traveling, Master Renzo usually teaches the advanced no-Gi class Saturdays.
You must have at least three (3) stripes on your White Belt in order to take a no-Gi class. It is important for our students to learn the fundamentals of Jiu-Jitsu wearing the Gi first. The Gi allows students to learn the concepts of control at a slower, yet much more effective, pace.
We don’t offer MMA classes to the public. In order to attend this type of class, you must be a member of our academy for a significant amount of time. If you’re serious about this class, please express it to one of our coaches and please be extremely respectful towards everyone involved. This class is invite-only.
Our membership is unlimited so for one set price, you’ll be allowed to take as many classes as your schedule permits.
