No Experience Necessary! Beginner Friendly Program. Start your Journey TODAY!
Let's be honest. Most Martial Arts Schools are not going to empower you with not only highly effective workout but highly effective mixed martial arts and gracie jiu-jitsu. Our teaching is highly sought after by not only local residents but also professional MMA fighters because of our pure style of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. We learned Gracie jiu-jitsu directly from Helio, Royce and Rorion Gracie which allowed us to keep it pure for over 20 years. This style is much more effective not only in a street fight but also in an MMA match and even a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competition. We also bring in the world's greatest fighters to hold seminars at our school. This includes names such as UFC Ulitmate Fighter coach Erik Paulson, BJJ World Champion Rafael Mendes and BJJ World Champion Buchecha.
We offer Martial Arts to everyone from the stay-at-home mom, to the weekend warrior and even the future UFC fighter. You will learn high quality Mixed Martial Arts, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Boxing, Kettlebells, TRX and much more. You will train in an organized system proven to help you reach your goals. And YOU WILL reach your goals, especially if you are interested in transforming your body into the body of an elite Mixed Martial Arts Athlete.

Testimonial: Gracie Thornwood Offers World Class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!
I walked in to Gracie Thornwood years ago with zero martial arts skills and average athletic ability and because of the technical and pure Gracie Jiu-Jitsu style of this academy I was able to receive my Gracie jiu-jitsu blackbelt in 4 years! They are the only academy that combines all four teaching techniques into their curriculum. This allows you to learn even if you aren't good at visual cues. I highly recommend everyone at least trying the 30 day FREE trial and finding out that they can become a BlackBelt in very little time. In fact, I not only received my BlackBelt in such a short period of time, thanks to the excellent instruction at Gracie Thornwood I have won several tournaments on my rise to BlackBelt and also won the NAGA world championships at BlackBelt. I have fought against some of the best fighters in the world in tournaments such as the Pan Ams, the Abu Dhabi Trials and the NYOpen. You can checkout my website MichaelDeBiase.com for more info about my BJJ.

Gracie Jiu-Jitsu BlackBelt
CNN/FOX News Safety Expert Steve Kardian (Retired Mount Pleasant Police Officer and NYC Special Investigator) and Tony Gioffre (Attorney who brought the Gracie Family jiu-jitsu to the East Coast) began Gracie Thornwood back in 1994. The school was created primarily to learn and train Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing, and Mixed Martial Arts with Royce Gracie and his family. Next, Gracie Thornwood sought after Shooto world Champion and UFC coach Erik Paulson to expand its overall Mixed Martial Arts and Self Defense Skills. As time progressed, the Westchester County New York based school became world renown for having the best Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts training in New York State outside of NYC.
