After Saturday nights Strikeforce event in San Jose California there is little room for any question of whether Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is still relevant in Mixed Martial Arts. Three of the four televised fights of night ended in submission.
• Nick Diaz defeats Evangelista Santos via submission (arm bar) – Round 2, 4:50
• Jacare Souza defeats Robbie Lawler via submission (rear-naked choke) – Round 3, 2:00
• Roger Gracie def. Trevor Prangley via submission (rear-naked choke) – Round 1, 4:19
All three of the above MMA fighters are Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelts. If you are interested in learning Mixed Martial Arts it is crucial to learn the submission game. At Long Island MMA and Fitness Center we cover ALL aspects of the MMA game, including Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (Long Island Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) and No Gi Jiu Jitsu.

There are some tremendous advantages and benefits of learning and training in the martial arts. In training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu at Long Island MMA and Fitness Center, I quickly learned that simply by adding Jiu Jitsu (Long Island BJJ) to my routine, I lost A LOT of weight. To be honest, I wasn’t even looking to start training in Jiu Jitsu in order to lose weight; But as a result of training, the weight loss kind of just happened! Hey, I’m not complaining!
I started training Long Island Brazilian Jiu Jitsu after high school ended. During my high school career, I was always an athlete and with high school being over, I needed something that would help meet my competitive desire. Martial Arts does that and so much more. At Long Island Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness Center, the instruction is WORLD CLASS, and you quickly become part of the team simply by training. That team involvement is one of the major things that I missed from competing in high school sports and at LIMMA and Fitness Center, I quickly became part of a team again.
Besides being an excellent work out and a means of weight loss, training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has allowed me to meet many people that I typically wouldn’t talk to in my daily life. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a sport based mostly on technique and not on athleticism. Because of this, you are able to train for much longer then in traditional sports like football or basketball. The age range is so wide in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Community that you might train with someone who is twice your age or even younger than you. Because of this, you often make friends with people who you wouldn’t typically be friends with.
Whether you are looking to train Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, lose some weight, fight professionally, meet new friends or just pick up a hobby for the New Year, Long Island Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness Center, located in Lindenhurst, Long Island, is the place for you! We are the premier BJJ training facility on Long Island and look forward to hearing from you!
