 None in Willamsburg/Geenpoint yet.   Only one or two in Brooklyn that I know of.

you are actually right. There is very little BJJ in brooklyn for whatever reason. I think in 1-3 years, Brooklyn and Queens will be cracked wide open with even more BJJ schools.

I checked that out.... it looks like a great school, but it's like 30 - 40 min from where I live in Park Slope. I work pretty long hours. (8-6 then get home around 7) Kind of a long day to cummute further out to Bay Ridge.

Thanks for the recommendation!
