Very friendly and awesome place to learn BJJ. Lots of individual attention to all students, breakdown of all moves with repetition, segmented classes for those that are new to the sport and those that are more advanced and actively sparring, so you never feel overwhelmed. Super fantastic for kids to learn as well, team building and respect focused classes. Strong community. Highly recommend!

I couldn’t be happier with the program both my boys (age 5 and 9) are enrolled in. My oldest son has adhd and has always struggled with confidence and motivation with physical activities. It took a couple of sessions but my son has not only enjoyed the program thoroughly but has excelled in such a short period of time. He stays focused and gains so much from each class. The support received by all coaches during their training sessions is outstanding and truly personalized for the needs of each child. Besides the physical training, my children have walked away with life lessons that they have been able to apply to their daily life. It has helped with motivating at home to exercise their discipline, independence and accountability. We look forward to every class and continuing to excel. It’s been an amazing experience seeing my son grow so much. Less

Wanna thank TG for helping me accomplish my goals. Teaching me the art of jui jitsu from the beginning til the end and helping each one us understand the move

The coaches are incredibly caring and attentive. Prof Wil not only knows all the students by name but also takes the time to understand their individual achievements and areas for improvement.

My son is enrolled in the kids Jiu-Jitsu program with Professor Wil. It is a great program instilling discipline, knowledge and life lessons. He loves going to the class everyday and has become more confident and less shy. The class meets two times a week and it is a 45 minute session and there is a make up class if you miss a class on Saturdays or weekdays and vice versa. Prof Wil and multiple other coaches teaches the class, usually a total of 3 couches are instructing the classes and kids are paired up according to size and skill. Good behavior, listening and move execution are acknowledged and rewarded. The lessons learned in class is expected outside of class. Overall, this Prof Wil's program is great for kid looking to have discpline, exercise and confidence. Prof Wil is passionate about what he teach and you could see that in class. I highly recommend Training Grounds for kids and adults. Less

P. Wil & the team at Training grounds have been so supportive. They really make you feel apart of the TG family by doing constant checkins, giving great feedback, and introducing you to other members. They work at your pace to make sure you understand the new movements they are teaching and focus heavily on safety and progression

We couldn't be happier with the positive impact that New Jersey Training Grounds MMA has had on our 6-year-old son. Not only has he gained confidence and self-respect, but he has also embraced positive values both at home and in school. Despite not being the most naturally athletic or boastful competitor, the program has taught him to focus on his strengths, and Professors Steve and Will have been instrumental in celebrating those strengths. We eagerly anticipate witnessing further developments in our son as he continues with this program. We believe that it will play a significant role in shaping him into an exceptional young man. We are grateful for the supportive environment and the dedication of the instructors at New Jersey Training Grounds MMA. Less

Great coaches and a great environment. You can really tell that the coaches are not only great teachers but passionate ones as well. Everyone is working together to get better which gives the space a real community feel. I’ve been going for 5 months now with no plan to stop in the future!

Coming from a completely non-martial arts background, my first few classes I struggled mainly with overcoming comfortability of personal space. That quickly went away as you get a lot of terms and positions thrown at you which seems overwhelming but you start to put it together and make sense of their lingo. learning fundamentals start to click together the 4th-5th class and TG does a good job at progressing the skills for the basic class week by week. You can always learn from some partners more than others but all the regulars I’ve met at TG have been extraordinarily helpful, kind, and welcoming. Professor Wil’s enthusiasm about the art shows in his teaching and it rubs off on the entire gym’s atmosphere they keep it real but also harbor a safe environment to learn and grow. Everyone is interested in just getting better and seeing eachother get better. Highly recommend giving it a try, prices could be better but it’ll be worth it if you come consistently. - Ian Less

I have been a member of Training Grounds since December and have enjoyed every little bit of it. Each class they come around to everyone in order to make sure you are doing everything correctly. The first day I was told everyone is incredibly nice and that is exactly how it is. Any time you ask a question they’re more than happy and willing to explain. The price is a little expensive but you got to remember it is not a chain, so it makes it completely worth your money. Love the Training Grounds. Less

Our daughter is having the time of her life at Training Ground Jiu-Jitsu. She is loving it and her confidence is soaring. Professor Wil and all the coaches are kind and patient, and they really know how to teach. I highly recommend Training Ground Jiu-Jitsu to anyone looking for a great place to learn jiu-jitsu.
5
The level of care put in to each training session is exactly what I was looking for. Every coach has an extremely professional demeanor while being extremely inclusive for everyone in the class. Professor Wills attention to detail and ability to convey the curriculum is unmatched. Would recommend for anyone looking to break into BJJ.

Training Ground is a great place for our child to learn and develop life skills such as leadership, determination and perseverance. The classes are hands on and interactive with great instruction from experienced instructors. I’ve personally had wonderful interactions with Prof Will and Coach Peter, both of whom seem to genuinely care about the progress and development of our little one. But honestly, their entire staff is very involved during class time, follow ups and check ins. Since joining a few months ago, we’ve noticed that our child has become more confident and more likely to initiate when meeting new kids. There are still things we would like to work on but we’re confident that Training Ground is able to assist in developing those areas. If you are looking for an activity that teaches life lessons and creates stronger kids mentally, emotionally and physically, you should give them a try. Less

Training Ground is nice. The trainers are really good and helpful. It's a friendly environment. My son learned a lot about self-defense and staying disciplined. He is a different boy after start training with them. By the way as a daddy I love the parking lot. Lol. It's great location. I definitely recommend it!

A well organized and structured class. The environment makes new students feel comfortable, the coaches and higher belts give great insight and are easy to talk to. Highly recommend for all to sign up.
5
Our son loves his classes at Training Grounds and looks forward to each one. He loves that he is getting stronger and we love that he is learning resilience and so many life lessons. The coaches are very knowledgeable and great with the kids. They know all of the kids well and patiently guide them while also holding them to high standards! We are very happy to be part of the TG community!

As an avid mma fan, I was always interested in joining some sort of gym. One day I found training grounds, and after a short talk with coach Pete, I knew it was meant for me. Training bjj has been an incredible experience, one I look to keep up the rest of my life. And at TG, the teaching is incredible led by professor wil who guides everybody. I cannot recommend Training Grounds BJJ/MMA enough!
5
Our kids (5) & (6) have been taking BJJ since September and their growth both in skills and focus has been undeniable.Coach Wil and Peter (+team) are attentive, knowledgeable and have a way of connecting with the kids that encourages them and makes them want to participate. Our kids have fun but more importantly are learning valuable skills/life lessons.

I’m a 63 year old and have trained BJJ on and off for the last 15 years. I’ve attended many different schools including Renzo Gracie NY, Tiger Schulman, and several smaller schools. I had a lot of injuries including 2 acls, patella and bicep tendon ruptures. 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with 911 related kidney cancer. I had Type 2 diabetes and was obese.

I’m a 63 year old and have trained BJJ on and off for the last 15 years. I’ve attended many different schools including Renzo Gracie NY, Tiger Schulman, and several smaller schools. I had a lot of injuries including 2 acls, patella and bicep tendon ruptures. 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with 911 related kidney cancer. I had Type 2 diabetes and was obese. I really missed BJJ but was very concerned that I was so out of shape and would get hurt again. I’d heard about Training Ground and in November, my wife, daughter (a college student who has trained and is also an accomplished wrestler) did a trial class with Coach Pete. I immediately noticed the welcoming, positive, supportive environment and found Coach Pete to be a very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive instructor who adapted to our different levels of fitness and experience. I joined the school and have lost 20 pounds and am regaining my stamina. I’m in better shape now than I’ve been in a long time and my BJJ skills have improved tremendously in a short amount of time. This is largely due to the great environment that Professor Will has created. I have rolled with students at all different levels and literally have not met a single jerk - everyone is respectful and very careful with submissions. My daughter is training also and there are quite a few very accomplished females students there also. I couldn’t be happier with my decision to start training again and choosing TG. Thank you Professor Will and team for having such a great school. I believe I have discovered the fountain of youth and plan on continuing to train for the rest of my life. Less

Training grounds has a great atmosphere especially for beginners, they treat everybody the same and have a very inclusive community. They genuinely care about your growth as a student and want to see you succeed. Professor Wil along with Steve, Ryan, and Peter are awesome instructors and very knowledgeable. Would recommend 100%.

Very welcoming and patient group, lots of good instruction and I always walk out thinking I’ve got to get to class more often. Wide range of skills among the group, beginners to experts and the instructors are very cool and generous with their knowledge.

After moving to Bergen County I was looking for a BJJ gym to train at and It didn’t take me long in my search before I came across a highly rated Training Grounds BJJ gym near me. All the great reviews have been spot on so far in my couple months of training. Prof Wil is a great teacher who pushes the students with high level technique in order for us to grow and learn. Great Gym !

Professor Will, Coach Pete and team are amazing. Both of my girls ages 7 & 9 love attending classes and are ready without hesitation. Great vibe from the staff, parents and students . A true reflection of what I being taught in class.

I happened upon Training Ground by accident whilst looking for a striking gym, as I recently moved to the area and have a boxing background. The striking class was not running and so I decided i had nothing to lose trying out a Jiu-Jitsu class. After my class I immediately signed up for membership. I’ve seen my share of good and bad gyms and training ground has got it right. Clear instruction, additional support when needed (very important in your first few sessions) and a great culture where people are there to learn and improve but also have fun. I have rolled with white belts up to brown belts so far and never once felt unsafe. Everyone wants you to improve. I cannot recommend this gym enough whether you have any kind of martial arts background or not. Less

While they are not taught the movements with the same names as adults, as they age they will be able to transition their understanding to the adult names for things very easily.

Character development is a strong component of the instruction here and I have seen it's effects on the character of my children. Highly recommend. Less

As a parent, it's always a joy to find a place that not only nurtures your child's interests but also contributes positively to their overall development. Training Grounds has been such a place for my 5-year-old son, who began his Jiu-Jitsu journey here just three months ago. The growth I've witnessed in him during this short period is remarkable. Not only has he improved in his Jiu-Jitsu skills, but there's also been a noticeable enhancement in his behavior, both at home and in class. He's become more respectful and considerate around the house, a change I attribute to the discipline and values he's learning on the mat. What really sets Training Grounds apart is the way Professor Wil and the coaching team approach each child. They have a keen eye for recognizing and nurturing individuality, ensuring that each young athlete receives the guidance they need to flourish. This personalized attention has been crucial in helping my son develop at his own pace, boosting his confidence and skills in the process. For parents looking for a constructive outlet for their children's energy, especially after a day in the classroom, I can't recommend Training Grounds enough. It's not just about learning Jiu-Jitsu; it's about growing as an individual. Thank you, Training Grounds, for providing such a positive, enriching environment for our kids! Less

Training grounds is a great place to learn jiu jitsu and everyone there is extremely helpful. Professor Will is very knowledgeable and you will leave every class with a new move or technique to take into the next class. Would highly recommend for anyone interested in taking the next step in their fitness or looking to learn martial arts.

My 9 year old son has really enjoyed his time at Training Grounds. The teachers are great and have really helped him build skill, strength, and confidence all at the same time. I love the friendly atmosphere and how all the kids really try to help each other learn and have fun. If you’re looking for a BJJ studio, I would highly recommend checking out Professor Wil and his staff!

I am happy to write a review about my child's experience at Training Grounds Jujitsu classes. My child initially started with private lessons due to previous negative experiences elsewhere, which had left him with low self-esteem. These one-on-one sessions, with Coach Peter, not only improved his jujitsu skills but also boosted his confidence significantly. After just two months in the kids' class, the instructors, led by Prof Wil, recognized his maturity and excellent jujitsu technique. They encouraged him to transition to the adult class, which was a huge step forward. I can't emphasize enough how much the instructors at Training Grounds Jujitsu & MMA has positively impacted my child. Not only has he grown as a martial artist, but he's also become more confident both socially and physically. We are incredibly grateful for the supportive environment and skilled instructors at Training Grounds. It's been an amazing journey of personal growth for our child, and we couldn't be happier with the progress he's made here. Thank you! Less

I joined Training Grounds simply because I wanted to learn BJJ and how to defend myself if needed. I could not have picked a better place to go, I've only been doing it for about 3 months now and I don't think I've ever been in a better place mentally and physically. The Instructors are fantastic and help you with anything you need to work on, I highly recommend giving it a shot.

Great school, everyone is friendly and willing to help. The instruction is detailed and the workout is great.

Professor Wil, Coach Pete and the rest of the Team at Training Grounds do an exceptional job, not only teaching kids training techniques but also building confidence through communication. I highly recommend Training Grounds for any parents/children seeking to learn self-defense or simply gain confidence when dealing with bullies/adversity.

The only thing I'm angry with is with myself for not joining any sooner! The instructors are thorough and take safety seriously; Most of all they are friendly! My 9yr old son does BJJ here as well and we both have been having a great time where we look forward to being on the matts everyday!

The communication is very transparent and they work to individualize a plan for your child and what it is you want them to achieve!

Professor Wil provides Excellent and comfortable environment for learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Therefore making it easy for the students to learn the art. If you’re looking for a place to learn BJJ or for a member of your family, I strongly recommend Prof. Wil and Training Grounds Jiu-Jitsu.

Great experience at Training Ground! Started with my daughter going and now my husband and my son do it as well. Excellent teachers with a lot of patience! Great for any age!

This is a great place for kids to learn Jiu Jitsu and MMA, Prof Will and Coach Peter have done a tremendous work teaching my son Elisee fundamentals of JJ.

The Most important thing to know about Training Grounds is that Prof Wil and team use BJJ as the medium for character development and life trajectory change. They do an incredible job engaging with all the kids. It’s very impressive how they maintain the classes attention. While the class is focused around learning a specific move, there is a constant stream of life lessons being taught; everything from understanding your emotions to how to deal with a bully. Prof Wil and team work closely with parents to make sure they gear their teaching towards each child’s individual needs. Would highly recommend! Less

Professor Wil's ju-jitsu classes are outstanding. He relates lessons to the real world, keeping the kids engaged and excited.

Being someone who didn't know anything about bjj, this is a pretty good place to get started and get to know the combat sport. All of the coaches are very patient and always willing to help on and off the mats, they're also always willing to answer any questions. So far I've had nothing but good experiences here trying to learn bjj.

This place is hands down the best gym to train bjj at. Instructors are very knowledgeable, supporting, and always enthusiastic. The curriculum is comprehensive and the training style is awesome. I'd recommend this place to anyone who is looking to get into Jiu Jitsu or for a new spot to train. 11/10

Great atmosphere, great people. Was on the fence about starting Jiu-Jitsu so I did a trial class and was hooked right away.

My son looks forward to going to class every week and comes out of place with such a positive attitude. I have really seen a change in my son since he had started.

They speak with the kids about goals and morals and values as well as teaching them self dense in the most positive safest way. I highly recommend Training Grounds. Less

Nothing but great things to say about TG. The atmosphere and members at TG make training here that much more enjoyable.

As a beginner, safety was key to me and the guys I was partnered with were incredible. They have people from all different levels here. I signed up and bought a gi on the very first day but decided to cancel because the drive turned out to be longer than I expected (about 1 hr and half total). This gym has positive energy that promotes growth. Because of how positive and fun my experience was, I'm planning on continuing jiu jitsu, just going to have to find something closer to me. Hopefully in the future I can stop by this place again. Pros: Safe, beginner friendly, positive environment, knowledgeable instructors Cons: I honestly have nothing negative to say, I had a great experience here. Thank all of you! Less

An amazing place for kids to learn discipline and respect, and develop confidence and skills. Coaches Will and Pete are incredibly knowledgeable and take the time to ensure that every student feels comfortable. Every class is filled with great energy and positivity, and every time we leave, my kids can’t wait to go back.

My son's experience at Training Grounds has been excellent. The classes are kid-friendly but there are appropriate expectations for learning, focus and discipline. Wil and Peter do a great job finding that balance between a fun time and a learning experience. We're a few months in and my son is still excited every time we head over to Training Grounds.

My son's experience at Training Grounds has been excellent. The classes are kid-friendly but there are appropriate expectations for learning, focus and discipline. Wil and Peter do a great job finding that balance between a fun time and a learning experience. We're a few months in and my son is still excited every time we head over to Training Grounds. As far as BJJ goes: I'm starting to see him try to incorporate some of the techniques into his sparring matches. He's young (started at age 4) but I could see these classes laying a good foundation if he wants to continue with BJJ. So far, so good! Less

Professor Wil and Coach Pete do an amazing job of making sure the kids are focused and learning while having fun. They expect proper behavior and show attention to each kid in class. My son absolutely loves going to Training Grounds and he is gaining a ton of self confidence.

Our little guy has been going to TG for a couple of months now and we've been impressed with his progress in a relatively short amount of time. We came looking for some help with his ability to focus, follow instructions, and to manage his emotions. We really like their approach to teaching the kids not just the moves, but about confidence, self-respect, discipline, good sportsmanship, good habits, and many other life skills. To us, that's more valuable than anything. They also have a great rewards system to motivate the kids and recognize their progress and efforts. It's a very positive place with good energy and its awesome to see the kids help each other (with Prof Wil and Coach Peter's guidance) when they are paired up. This is a great option for kids that are not into traditional team sports. Less

After just a few sessions, I started noticing huge improvements in my son’s behavior and he finally seemed like he found an activity that stimulated him, motivated him, but was also fun. Professor Wil’s unique teaching style combines high expectations with comforting support and encouragement, and now after a few months, my son is thriving and can’t wait each week for class. We are so glad to be part of the Training Grounds and I am excited to see how these learned skills will continue to improve all areas of my son’s life. Less

I enrolled my daughter at Training Grounds over the summer. She has diagnosed inattentive ADHD and anxiety and Professor Wil and his entire staff have been nothing but amazing. The transformation that has occurred in the short amount of time has been unbelievable . She’s more focused, has more self confidence and she takes more pride in her life, in class and out. The fact that the class teaches Jiu-Jitsu skills as well as life skills is what differentiates them from other studios. They are giving the kids tools to get them through life and to be able to stand up for themselves and their peers. I made an excellent decision signing her up with Training Grounds and I will forever recommend them to other families in the area Less

It’s been about 3 months since my boys started at Training Grounds and for our family, it was one of those decisions you make for your kids that you hope all the things -they say is possible on the website- really is true. And 3 months in, I’m really excited to see the growth in my children, proud of how they’ve shown resilience and grateful for this incredibly supportive & loving place. I’ve watched my youngest apply the coping techniques taught to him at Training Grounds off and on the mats. While my oldest has shown a tenacity I didn’t know he had in him during matches in class. To say we are happy with our decision to join the Training Grounds family would be an understatement. Less

My son started here few month ago and he loves it. Very friendly atmosphere with enjoyable training. Proff Will is excellent instructor that takes a personal approach to each student.

Great place, amazing coaches.

The program is AMAZING. It is so much more than the physical Jiu-Jitsu training. Prof Wil and the entire team is there with their hearts! and it shows in every aspect: starting with the level of care and attention to details, through fun teaching techniques, a well-thought training plan, and last but not least - supporting the kids' emotional development.

The team in place truly cares about the kids they teach and get parents involved with obtaining the goals set for each child. Great place to have your kids learn self defense and have a fun time learning while they gain knowledge.

The teaching mechanisms that prof. Will uses are on the child’s level. It’s adorable and he makes them all repeat the move so he 1) holds their attention and 2) it’s engrained in their minds. At the end of every session he lectures in a group about life lessons. Is. Having integrity, respecting parents, being honest. It’s definitely having another person / team to your village (village of raising children). The morals my son will come away with are priceless ! Less

My son is 13. Was experiencing bullying, Managing very badly frustration and felt very very bad about himself being tiny and thin. MMA changed everything. His self esteem is much higher. No more stomach aches to avoid schools, no more bad treatment from peers. Training grounds was a life changing for the all family. Beyond the sport, the coaches talk a lot to the kids at the beginning and at the end of each practice. Speeches are fundamentals about respect and control of self emotion. They are very flexible and responsive to your kid’s needs. I highly recommend that place. I wish there was more places like that and closer to home. I’m driving one hour (way and back) for a 45min class. But It’s worth it. Less

If you're looking to train BJJ look no further than Training Grounds. Ive been training here about 2 years, Professor Wil gives a ton of individual instruction and is always happy to answer any questions. He makes sure that everyone can learn in an enjoyable environment. I would recommend TG to anyone who's interested in training BJJ.

This is great program, both of our children are enrolled. In a short time, not only have they gained a higher level of self confidence - important life principles are being reinforced in each session. We highly recommend Training Grounds!

Honestly a great gym for anyone new to BJJ or experienced with it. The atmosphere is great and Will is wonderful. No one is there to try and hurt each other and everyone is there to learn from one another. It does not matter if you are purple belt or a white belt, you should never feel afraid to ask questions and Will and all the teachers at the school are amazing.

We are so happy we found this place for my son. It is slowing building up his confidence and self esteem. We love the talks Master Will has with the kids to teach them life lessons. Coach Pete is also amazing with the kids. Lastly, the way they teach the kids with funny stories keeps my son coming back for more every week.

We visited Training Grounds in 2021 with our two sons who were 8 and 10 at the time. The team was exceedingly friendly and our children knew almost immediately they wanted to sign up for classes. It will be almost a year soon, and our boys still love going to classes here. Professor Wil does a fantastic job of fostering values like respect during the training sessions. Training usually begins with calisthenics and then roll immediately into the daily lesson that involves developing a new move or modifying an existing one. The class (from the ones I've observed) usually breaks into pairs and the children practice moves with each other while the coaches observe and offer guidance. On more than one occasion a more experienced student will attend the class as well. It's truly a nice thing to see a young person with the poise and responsibility to coach another young person. I attribute this to the environment Professor Wil and his team have created. Class ends with Professor Wil speaking to kids as a group and going over a lesson for the day. The classes hit home on athleticism, skill, competition, sportsmanship, and at the risk of being repetitive; respect. Our kids really enjoy attending, meeting other children, and developing skills that help build strength and confidence. We enjoy seeing them grow into the sport and consider it money well spent. When we asked our kids if they wanted to commit to a second year it was a solid yes without hesitation or afterthought. Highly recommended. Less

Amazing place for both beginners & experienced people training in BJJ. I have been coming for over 6 months and appreciate the different teaching styles from all of the coaches and the welcoming atmosphere from them and other members.

Words cannot express how beyond happy we have been with the experience at Training Grounds. We enrolled our then 6 year old daughter into the Ninjas program in Jan 2021. She has learned so much in such a short period of time, and her confidence and self worth has blossomed. She has not only learned the art of BJJ, but she has learned valuable lessons in life that she has taken to inside the studio and in her personal life with family, friends, teachers and so on. If we could give this program 100 stars we would. The instructors are pure angels sent from above. Don’t hesitate doing a trial, it only takes one time to get the real feel and experience from this amazing group. Less
