    Awful instruction. Does not teach. Drives quality students away from the gym. Travels too much to Brazil. Overpriced for the instruction offer. I give him a 0 out of 5.

    Great BJJ I trained there for several months and have only good things to say. The only reason why I stopped training was because of school and work which cut into my personal time. I tried 3 different gyms before joining Sensei Edson and all of them knew him and his training. Also if you asked some of the instructors in bergen county area they either trained under or with Sensei Edson.

    Your talking about a guy who literally grew up on the mat and never stepped off. 7th dan judo and jiu jitsu traveled the the world learning from world class teachers and competition against the best of the best…. The harder the way the better the student

    Sensei Carvalho is one of the most sincere, friendly, kind-hearted people you will ever meet. He is a great mentor and only wants the best out of his students, on the mat and in life. He’s someone you can go to with your problems and he’s willing to listen. You may not like the feedback all the time but its always real. Im one of his more street students who never really had much but he treats me the same as everyone else. I dint know about the whole he doesn’t teach thing because I learned majority everything I know from him. And learning from a bunch of cool qualified blackbelts never hurt anyone. I love that dojo. Going there has changed my life for the better and has given me hope for a brighter future. Forget friends. I joined a team of brothers and no matter how much I lime to venture out to see other schools, that will always be my home and base. Oss

    About seven years ago I decided to improve my martial arts and after some research on BJJ in NJ, I was lucky to find TEAM CARVALHO.
    I found out that Sensei Edson Carvalho have 7th Degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt & 6th Degree Judo Black Belt.

    I visit TEAM CARVALHO dojo in Paterson NJ and watched kids and adult training. Students are all ages, belt levels and weight. Many students are champion competitors. Soon I realized that it is a top BJJ school!

    I started training BJJ with my son and daughter for a good package price compare with other schools. You are constantly challenged and exposed to new techniques. I guarantee their level of professionalism, work ethic, effective teaching ability that you would get in a professional structured academy environment.

    School facility is large and well maintained. Staff keeps the area hygienic. Sensei and black belt instructors are always happy to answer questions and even stay after class.

    Fellow teammates are a diverse range of people including pro fighters, amateur competitors, senior citizens, young professionals, outstanding athletes, and people looking to get in shape. We always watch each other and coach each other.

    The people at this academy aren’t just my instructors or my training partners; they are my brothers.

    No matter how bad my day is or how tired I am from school or work, all that goes away when I step on the mat.

    You gain excellent physical conditioning and mental prowess and also Self Defense FOCUS, DISCIPLINE, RESPECT, and CONFIDENCE.
