Serra Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy
~I have been training there for just over 7 months now and hold a white belt, so any views I make here are coming from that level of experience with the art~
Great group of guys, and pretty laid back environment. The school has two locations one in Huntington (where I train) and the other in East Meadow, NY. Between them there is currently 3 black belts besides Matt himself that teach classes regularly, with a number of brown belts that run classes on off-days. Every instructor in my opinion has been quite friendly and proven to be utmost knowledgeable of all aspects of grappling gi or no-gi and aren't afraid to get on the mat and make sure every student understands what they are working on.
Although it is a BJJ school, lots of no-gi transitions and differences are addressed and worked into class no matter the level of the student. Students begin live rolling as soon as they have the basics down.
Classes run on a typical format of:
-Drilling techniques and reversals/counters to the technique
-"King of the hill" style position drilling such as Guard passing, mount taking from side control etc.
Overall I'd recommend this school to anyone who wants to improve their ground game. I haven't had one bad experience there, and my ability on the ground I feel is growing exponentially.
