Transform Yourself with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu In Bergen County NJ ...

Become the Unstoppable Warrior of Your Own Life

Hi, I'm Wil Horneff, Founder of Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA located in Westwood, NJ and I have a question for you ...

How would you feel if you lived your life bursting with supreme confidence?

... You're 100% self-assured. You possess a powerful gut sense that whatever life throws at you (a stressful day at work or a surprise self-defense situation)... you can handle it.

What does this have to do with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu?

Everything. Here's why...

When you train Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, you become stronger – mentally, physically and emotionally. Your body gets in amazing physical and cardio shape. Body fat melts away with ease. Your abs and core become like a rock! Your training releases endorphins (your brain's happy chemicals) that send you on a natural high. Listen to this...

"I lost 97lbs in addition to gaining flexibility, strength, and healing up my back. This place is my home and it's changed my life."

Why Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is #1 for Self-Defense

Two words: efficiency and leverage ...

The efficiency of Jiu-Jitsu techniques let you control and submit your opponent with minimal energy and movement. (But don't get me wrong ... you still get a killer workout, since you can burn around 700 calories during one hour of Jiu-Jitsu training!)

And all the techniques are based on leverage. This allows you to become extremely powerful and effective – even if you lack strength, speed, size or flexibility.

That's why virtually every top UFC fighter has a Brown or Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. And it's why thousands of every-day people are turning to Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense and as a base for MMA training.

You never have to get into a fight to enjoy the feeling of power and certainty you now carry inside you everywhere you go. But if you or a loved one are ever assaulted, your Jiu-Jitsu training will snap into place – so you can safely diffuse the threat, even against larger and stronger assailants!

With Jiu-Jitsu, you'll be a hero in your own home. And that confidence bleeds through in every area of your life... work, social situations, life challenges, everything.

"I Have Increased Cardio, A Strong Core, Higher Confidence, And It Helped My Back"

Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA
5 / 5 stars

My name is Tom Raimondi. I'm a technical consultant in Bergen County. Prior to coming here I had absolutely no experience with martial arts. In the past I'd always joined a regular gym going on a treadmill, lifting weights and it was very boring which was why I wasn't going. I was looking for something else to do that was exciting so I started looking into jujitsu schools. I always had an interest in brazilian jiu jitsu and kickboxing from watching the UFC. Since I've been here I've learned a ton. My cardio has increased incredibly. I was in very bad shape before I came here. I have strengthened up my core and my back which I had problems with in the past. And now I have a much higher confidence level to be able to handle myself in a self defense situation. Master Wil is very patient and has a very well thought out curriculum and is able to convey the techniques in a way that people like me who have absolutely no experience can easily learn it.

I get a great feeling from the school because everyone is looking to help each other out, and push each other to reach their full potential. I feel like I am 18 again.

"It's Given Me So Much Assurance On So Many Levels"

Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA
5 / 5 stars

I've been training brazilian jiu jitsu in bergen county for 6 years. I started it just to get in shape and learn a martial art. I've trained at a lot of schools before settling on Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA. It was the home I always wanted as far as a gym is concerned. BJJ has increased my confidence so much over the years because you are constantly testing yourself in a safe environment. I don't know where I would be without the training here. It's given me so much self assurance on so many levels. It's the most healthy outlet that I could ever have imagined in my life. It's a place where I can come to forget about work, forget about any of life's problems. And for that hour or so that I am training nothing else matters. It's just a wonderful feeling that it gives you. As far as the instruction is concerned. I've trained at lot of other jujitsu schools and learned from a lot of good instructors but never one like Master Wil. He shows such an incredible amount of detail in the techniques. It makes a world of difference in your progression.

I'm not saying other instructors aren't good, but sometimes finding someone that works well with you, who will give you a solid understanding of how bjj works is really night and day. Before this I've never had an instructor that has taken so much personal concern and attention to his students individually...

  • Spotless Facility

Our gym is cleaned by a professional cleaning service twice per day. You may be saying to yourself, “Why is that such a big benefit?” Most gyms that teach BJJ in NJ don’t clean their mats with hospital grade disinfectant several times per day or hire a professional cleaning service. When you train at Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA, you can rest assured that the only thing that you will be bringing home with you is a great workout.

  • Quality Personal Attention

During each class, you'll receive guidance and hands-on instruction from qualified instructors and assistant instructors. Our high instructor-to-student ratio is a major advantage that helps you learn and retain the techniques while accelerating your Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu skills.

"I Wanted To Learn How To Handle Whatever Comes"

5 / 5 stars

My name is Lazlo Ember. I'm 47 years old. I was looking for a jujitsu school where I could learn bjj in nj specifically for self defense. Things are getting rough out there and you can come across some nasty people and I wanted to learn how to handle whatever comes. I wanted to be strong and healthy and do it's now before it's too late. I work a lot of hours. I'm married. Life is tough and there is always time constraints but I find it very easy to come here and I'm learning a lot and getting stronger. You gain a lot of self confidence, you feel better, and it makes me a better worker and better husband. Everybody is very nice here and it came as a surprise because you never know whats going to happen walking into an brazilian jiu jitsu school.

This is the first time I did this and I was a little nervous coming in here initially but the environment and friendliness of everyone put me at ease. Every time I leave I feel excellent. I am stronger and more confident and I look forward to continuing my training.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg ...

We also throw UFC parties, go on outings together and celebrate each other's birthdays. You might not expect that from a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy, but that's how we roll here. And I believe you're going fit right in.

Speaking of fitting in ... you might be wondering what kind of people train at Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA?

"If Your Confidence Is Down, This Is The Place To Get It Back Up"

Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA
5 / 5 stars

"I've been to a bunch of other jujitsu schools and academies looking to train bjj in nj. I chose Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu & MMA because the environment is amazing. There are no egos, no "tough guys." Everybody is great, everyone helps each other out. You know you come here, if you want to train hard you can train hard, if you want to just drill and work on your moves it's great for that as well. Everyone is looking to help you and make you better.

Coach Wil is very interactive with his students no matter what your level. I have seen tremendous changes in my body from my cardio to flexibility to strength which has benefited me tremendously in a real life self situation. If your confidence is down this is the place to get your confidence up and defend yourself on the street."
