About Us

Team Fabio Clemente is the original Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu academy in NYC. Opening its doors in 1995 under the ownership of Professor Fabio Clemente, who is one of the pioneers of BJJ on the East Coast, and is credited with popularizing BJJ in the City. Along with the help of Professor Babs Olusanmokun, Fabio’s first black belt, his academy quickly gained a reputation for being welcoming to all ages and experience levels, having extremely skilled and patient instructors, and being very clean.

With our very dedicated and nurturing instructors, we are no “McDojo,” and our academy is sought after by those in the know for specific and hands on training. With great and highly encouraged interaction between our students and their accomplished instructors, our school is second to none in the Tri-State area.
