Matt and Nick Serra have a BJJ school in LI, train there instead.
I trained 3 years there when it was a Genbukan School.
Long Island Ninjutsu Centers tends to be a bit of a paradox.
On one side its a Black Belt Club, Kitty Black Belt, Kata, etc.
However, on the other side all belts are earn and they gear up a bang alot. Sparring and grappling and MMA is a standard part of training. In addition they do compete is local tournments.
Actually when I was away from college and couldn't train there, the closest thing to was I was doing at LINC turned out was the BJJ club (not the Okiniwan Karate Club like I fist thought).
Despite some warning signs on the surface, LINC is IMO a highly rated school with highly skilled people.
For political reasons they leave the Genbukan last year.
D'oh! Stupid rush to judgement on my part, my apologies. It didn't look like they had an MMA curriculum on the site.

Since when did they have an MMA program? I highly doubt its any good. went there once and talked to the instructor. It sounded like compliant Ninjutsu. No mention and grappling, kickboxing or MMA.
Also, if your looking for MMA or grappling, go to an MMA school, not a Ninjutsu one.
Are you serious?

His son has been going since....I haven't been able to live with myself....
Knowing is not enough, you must apply...
...Willing is not enough you must do
I saw them once at a karate tournament. I know I went to one a while ago, I'm ashamed. You know the type of tournament I'm talking about: point sparring, forms, demos, I'm disgusted at myself.
Anywho's I saw them doing some prett stupid **** at the tournament. Their self defence techniques were stupid as in: guy punches you, defender dives through his legs and kicks him in the groin on the way through. Fucking stupid.
At least me and GIJoe hit each other and stuff when we demo'ed.
