I have trained at a few gyms and NVBJJ is my new home. Professor Carl has a structured curriculum and shows advanced techniques since he is still training and learning with top level guys. The crowd here is competitive and will get you where you want to be.
If it ever crosses your mind to learn BJJ this is the place to go. The head professor “Carl” is experienced, professional, knowledgeable, humble and just genuinely cares about both his craft and teaching it properly to his students. Whether you’re a black belt or a white belt you are made to feel equal and there is a “no clicks” environment that will make anyone willing to learn feel comfortable. Also the class sizes are decent and as well as the price for membership. I’ll end this by saying thanks to Carl for allowing me to be apart of this great craft via your school!
I had a great time visiting. The school is very nice, clean, easy parking, and the atmosphere and people are very welcoming. The instruction is tremendous. I have been training for 5 years and I picked up a few things from Carl that I was immediately able to use. If you are thinking about starting, you can't go wrongs with this place. It will set your Jiu-JItsu on very sound footing.
Professor Carl Massaro is easily one of the greatest instructors I’ve ever had. I know it seems like a polite thing to say about your professor, but Carl Massaro is the REAL deal. High level instruction in a beautiful facility conveniently located in Northvale, N.J., combined with instructors and coaches who go above and beyond at a moments notice. Regardless of what your goals are, this is the room you WANT to be in. Renzo Gracie Northern Valley has become a home away from home for me, and my training partners have become family. I love and believe in the art I learn, and it’s all thanks to prof. Carl and the staff at Renzo Gracie Northern Valley.
I absolutely love training at this academy and recommend it to anyone who is interested in martial arts to check this gym out. It is a friendly and positive training environment.
There is no doubt that this is one of the top tier BJJ schools in the area. I have been training under professor Carl for a little over two years now and can honestly say I am a better person for doing so. Both the students and coaches are very welcoming and friendly. If you are looking to train BJJ I highly recommend checking us out at Renzo Gracie Northern Valley!
Beautiful academy with world class instruction.
I've been a long time student of professor Carl Massaro from the very early days of Renzo Gracie Northern Valley. It's been a great privilege of mine to train, learn, and grow under his guidance. There is no better school in the area. The facility is very clean, the people are amazing and of course the jiu-jitsu is top notch! There is no better place to train!
This academy provides a fun and positive training environment combined with world class instructors. I absolutely love this school!
This is an incredible school to have access to in North Jersey. I appreciate that the school provides training in jiu-jitsu for both self-defense, as well as sport competition. More importantly, the instructors are very effective in their teaching methodologies and spend time throughout class providing valuable feedback to students on the techniques taught. It was clear to me that the instructors really care about teaching and their students. Finally, the students and the instructors are all very friendly and welcoming which makes for a very comfortable and fun learning environment. Mats are also well maintained and very clean.
Professor Massaro and his instructors provide unparalleled guidance and knowledge of the art form. The academy has an amazing culture/community that supports one another.
Most importantly, BJJ is great for mind, body and spirit. Start training here ASAP!
