About

For some time now, we've dedicated our lives to bringing the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of martial arts to the West Hempstead community. Recently, our family has expanded way beyond West Hempstead, into Franklin Square, Garden City, Lynbrook, Rockville Centre, and more !
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.

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.

Our childrens' program, designed by a New York State certified elementary school teacher, and supported by Powerful Words, one of the leading character development programs in the country, incorporates age appropriate skills and activities to help bring out the best in your child. If you live in the towns of Franklin Square, Garden City, Lynbrook, Valley Stream, Rockville Center, Uniondale, Hempstead, or 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

Highly Reccommended

We enrolled our daughter as a free trial on Groupon as something for her to do and to help keep her focused. Little did we know we were going to get more than that! Popkin Brogna Jujitsu has built upon the principles that we already established with our daughter: integrity and accountability. All of the Sensei’s and Sempei’s are trained in Jujitsu. The Sensei’s: Steven, Howard, Joseph and the Sempei’s: Stephanie, Nick and Amy all take a vested interest in your child’s development to help them grow and learn a martial art. Also, they have a parent class once a week where you can practice the techniques your children are learning to help them advance. What we really like is they do not do social promotions, which means your child has to really work hard to earn their belt in order to advance. They just opened a brand new state of the art dojo. They have become extended family and we plan on sending our son there when he gets of age.

The Best There Is

This is an amazing martial arts center. All of the Sensei are not only great teachers in the art of Jujitsu but provide life lessons for children of all ages. I recommend parents give their child/children an experience that will be beneficial to their overall well-being and enroll them with Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center.

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.

Best Experience Ever

Since our son began taking classes at Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu he has become more focused at both school and has his practicing what he has learned. He has more self-control as he is learning how to have a better sense of himself. I am thrilled with the growth in him and know he will continue to thrive as he takes classes and moves up the ranks. We feel like we have become a part of the family!

Great Learning Environment

Wonderful dojo for kids to learn focus, respect, discipline. My son has gained more confidence since starting at Popkin-Brogna almost 2 years ago. When he has problems learning a technic the instructors take the time to show them the correct move and if need be spend one on one time with a student until they have the moves down correctly and with confidence. The are all about the kids and building confidence!!!!

Top Notch Instructors, Great Learning Environment

My son has grown stronger both physically and emotionally since coming to PBJJC. He is confident enough in his skills to demonstrate them and to be a leader in class as well. This is significant for him; in the past, he would have been afraid to stand out. He has been able to apply the lessons learned from his resistance to things that are unknown (i.e. striking week) to other new experiences. This is helpful for both of us! It means less upset for him which translates into smoother transitions and less frustration for me. We have also been able to construct a plan for dealing with incidents in which he feels picked on at school. Rather than allowing these kids to get under his skin, he is able to (mostly) calmly ignore the kids who make him upset and communicate better with the adults in his life when something is too much for him to deal with on his own. The dojo has become a safe place for my son to come into his own. He's growing to trust himself which is no small feat. Thanks to Popkin-Brogna JJC you for all you ALL do every day to help every child be the best they can be!

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!

by John Chen on 11/30/2014

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

Seneis”s Joe and Howard are awesome! The classes they teach are fun energetic classes while providing great results in self confidence, defense, and control. These guys know their stuff.

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.
