About

For some time now, we've dedicated our lives to bringing the physical - and spiritual - benefits of martial arts to our community. Through classes geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, our school itself has become a community of learning and growth. We'd love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape too.

Together, these three elements lead to a happier, healthier life. After all, for thousands of years, martial arts has been a tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each moves builds discipline, focus and determination. The desire to advance through the ranks develops goal setting and ambition. The rush of passing tests, and seeing how far you've come builds confidence and pride.

Helping you succeed in martial arts is the only goal of our West Hempstead program. Everyone here - each of our martial arts instructors - is passionate about helping you succeed, have fun, and enjoy the time you spend here. So come on by and try out the program that's best-suited for you. You can learn more about the classes our West Hempstead school offers, and call us to register for the one that's right for you.

If you live in the following towns of Franklin Square, Garden City, Lynbrook, Valley Stream,Rockville Center, Baldwin then you are close enough to come train with us!

I Sincerely Doubt You'd Find Finer Teachers Anywhere.

When it comes to incredible martial skill, with the ability to impart this knowledge to others, these guys are simply top drawer. I honestly feel anyone who visits Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center will be blown away. Don't waste time, make haste, I promise you won't regret it. And tell them Phil sent you!

Best Martial Arts School Around

When I was a little kid, I used to watch kung fu movies on tv. I wanted to learn martial arts, but my parents didn't have the time or the money. Many years later as an adult, I realized that I needed to learn how to protect myself and the people I care about. Every time I watch the news something crazy is happening. That's when I began my search for a martial arts school as an adult. I wanted to learn something that works in the real world and not just on tv. Fortunately, for me I found the Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center. I've been training at least 3 times a week for almost a year now and I love it. Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center has 2 types of adult classes. The self defense class is focused on what can happen on the street on any day at any time. The other class is the traditional class, which has more ancient japanese martial arts techniques. The techniques are both beautiful and deadly at the same time. I'm in both classes, so come by and say hello. For more info on the self defense class you can visit: www.pbjjc.com or if you're into martial arts and would like a more traditional style, visit: www.ginjukai.com

Outstanding School For Adults or Kids

Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center is a phenomenal facility with outstanding staff. If you have a daughter or son, or are looking for a workout for yourself that also gives you self-defense skills, this is the place. The instructors are knowledgeable, known internationally for their martial arts skills, and yet they are also amazing with kids. The classes are high energy with a positive atmosphere, and the kids love it! I highly recommend the classes for kids and adults. www.pbjjc.com

Best Martial Arts School

This is an amazing school. The senseis are funny and yet focused and super skilled. The school is a great environment for learning self-defense and for staying in shape. Best dojo on Long Island!

Amazing Instructors with True Passion For Their Art!

I cannot say enough about these guys! They are simply world class. Their passion for their art shows in their teaching and customer service experience. Get involved!

Grateful To Be Training Here

I'm thankful to be a PBJJC student. The enviroment is friendly and at your own pace. When I have a stressful day, I can leave everything outside the dojo. When I leave the dojo, I'm ready to take on whatever stress that was affecting me that day with ease.

Top Notch

Popkin Brogna self defense is the place to be for martial arts instruction. Howard and Joe are top notch instructors with a wealth of knowledge, experience, humor, patience and skill. And both offer such complimentary, yet different teaching styles. I travel from North Carolina to train with them, as well as invite each of them to NC to offer their expertise to our school and students. Whether you are a beginner or a teacher, you should be training with Popkin-Brogna. If I had children, I would enroll them all in an instant!

Great Martial Arts and Great People

Sensei Joe and Howie are amazing ... They’re not only excellent martial artists but great people too. They are great with kids and adults. If you want to learn real martial arts from two real gentlemen ... look no further. They make it really fun ... They take what they do seriously ... but don't take themselves too seriously.

Wow!

Ive been sending my children here for many years. I have seen MAJOR improvements in their grades, their focus, and their confidence. They beg me everyday to go to JuJitsu. We love Sensei Joe, Sensei Steve, and Sensei Popkin!

Excellent Family Martial Arts- Would Highly Recommend To Anyone

Originally we picked jujitsu as an extracurricular activity, thinking that our 5 year old son would love it. Our 8 year old daughter then begged to go, so we signed her up. Our son enjoyed it and really learned a lot but our daughter LOVED it, and to our surprise asked to go every day and to multiple classes per day!! I am so impressed with Popkin Brogna Jujitsu. They are so creative in their instruction and ability to work with children. I especially loved the mother’s day mother-child jujitsu session; had I realized what a workout I would get, I would have worn more appropriate clothing. ? At the end of the mother’s day class the children “disappeared” for a moment and then returned with a rose and a card and my heart almost melted. My experience with Popkin Brogna Jujitsu has been really positive and even my husband has joined at this point! I really feel that we are part of the Popkin Brogna Jujitsu family.
