I'm travelling from the UK to NYC in April for cough wrestlemania cough. I'm staying on 43rd street in Manhattan for 3 days and fancy getting an hour or so of training. Any gyms nearby I could visit? Phone Post

Is Renzo Gracie below your standards?

Renzo's has great instruction, but Renzo rarely teaches classes and Marcelo's teaches 2x a day (M-Friday).

(Yes, I know John Danaher is amazing too- but I still would recommend taking classes with Marcelo- especially if you have limited time in NYC)

I was wondering if Renzo teaches anymore. Who are the main instructors now for the gi classes at Renzo's? Any idea who coaches or trains Gianni Grippo then?

I guess by going to Marcelo's and Shaolin's you are guaranteed they will be teaching.

From my visits, here's what I've seen:
Magno teaches some of the classes, as do the brothers, and sometimes one of Danaher's students (Brian) covers his classes. Gianni runs the competition classes.

Magno taught Gianni almost exclusively through at least blue belt as there was no one else there his size that could push him (Gianni was in his early teens)

Magno is a great guy and good to do privates with although I think he teaches out of Queens now

I think Marcelo teaches the lunch time and an evening class? When I visited, early morning class was with Paul. Both are good instructors. Phone Post

I heard Master Shaolin has a great group of guys. Ive trained at Renzos for a couple years but now have been ut of the game for about 1.5 years due to some injuries and work. Its gonna be a little bit more till i rejoin the bjj life but when I do I want to give your place a look. To be taught by Shaolin or Loro on a daily basis must be a great privilege
