Jiu Jitsu Bergen County
Our class curriculum is built around the development of both ground fighting and stand-up skills. We instruct our students in take-downs, securing top and bottom positions Gi & No-Gi submissions. Our classes combine Traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Greco-Roman Wrestling, Shamrock Submission Fighting under 5X UFC World Champion Frank Shamrock and Catch Wrestling to yield an extremely effective and proven system in all phases of Grappling Combat.
Our BJJ Linage has deep roots with some of the pioneers of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Professor Mitch Coats of the The Base BJJ Training Center is our Instructor’s Instructor. Professor Coats, as well as Master Ross, were instructors in Alliance Jiu Jitsu. Professor Coats went from White Belt to 2nd Degree Black Belt with Alexandre “Gigi” Paiva of Alliance Jui Jitsu, Brazil. He was then offered a leadership position with CheckMat headed by Leo Vieira, the 2X Abu Dhabi Combat Club (ADCC) Champion, a World BJJ Champion and a 2X Pan American BJJ Champion.
Our students are Champions in NAGA, Grapplers Quest, The Good Fight, AMMO Fight League, Pan Am, IBJJF, Abu Dhabi to name a few. The classes are led by Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Phil Ross, who is a NAGA Expert No-Gi Champion, BJJ NAGA Gi Champion and former Division 1 Wrestler. Also on the teaching roster is multiple time NAGA, IBJJF, Good Fight and Grappler’s Quest Champion Khyl Farrison, who is ranked under Jay Hayes.
