New York Karate Academy Mixed Martial Arts Program
New York Karate Academy
is now an Official
NYMAG Training Academy
Our MMA Program:
The Core of Mixed Martial Arts is Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Jiu-jitsu is the art that revolutionized the Martial Arts World and opened our eyes to the reality of fighting in MMA events. Since then, there isn't an MMA Champion who doesn't train in Jiu-jitsu, whether he lists it as his style or not. Whether you want to compete in MMA, Submission Grappling, Sport Jiu-jitsu or not compete at all, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu has proven itself to be the number one single Martial Art in the MMA arena and an absolute necessity for Self Defense; it has been adopted by the Military and a Large Majority of Law Enforcement Agencies. BJJ is an art that can be practiced safely on a daily basis with a reduced risk of injuries.
You can't have Mixed Martial Arts
For those who wish to become more involved in MMA, we have Striking Instructors on hand who teach in our MMA Classes and Separate Boxing and Muay Thai Classes - although this is not a requirement (as many of our recreational clients do not wish to get hit), it is something that we make available to students.
Regardless of your reason for training, Jiu-jitsu is one of the only Martial Arts that addresses all areas of fighting, including how to deal with strikes, takedowns, submissions, holds, passing the guard, the guard (fighting from your back) and escapes.
All Classes are taught by Accredited BJJ Black Belts
and/or Champions of the Sport.
Classes will be taught by the only Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in the Hudson Valley.
Classes begin October 5th, 2009

Monday 10 am-12:00 pm
Tuesday 8:15 pm -10:15 pm
