Vertex Jiujitsu in Riverhead Long Island, NY
Gregg DePasquale is a 3 stripe Brown Belt under Renzo Gracie Black Belt Joe D'Arce. He is also an excellent wrestler and competed in the county tournaments while in high school.
He just opened up a new school in Suffolk County Riverhead, NY. It's located inside the Ultimate Fitness East Gym.
I have trained with Greg and he is a great coach, not only in BJJ but also in MMA and conditioning. He trains multiple fighters who compete in both Amateur and Professional fights.
He currently has two classes per week :
Mondays 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM No Gi
Wednesdays 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM Gi
He plans on adding more classes when he can.
If you're in the area I would check it out and take a free class. It's the only Brazilian JiuJitsu school in Suffolk County that far east that I know of, so if you're in Riverhead give it a shot.
