Renzo Gracie Rockland Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Central Nyack, New York, is an affiliate of the Renzo Gracie Academy, offering instruction in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for Men and Women. Head Instructor Omar Jimenez learned the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at the legendary Renzo Gracie Academy, and currently holds the rank of Purple Belt under Renzo Gracie.

Omar ¬†does not simply lead the “Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu lifestyle”, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu defines him. For the past decade, Omar has dedicated his life to learning the gentle art, as well as how to teach it effectively and in a way that encompasses the needs of all different types of students. Throughout Omar’s own progression up the BJJ ranks, he became known amongst teammates as a submission specialist, or someone who focuses on finishing matches, rather than winning on points. Partnered with his masterful mind, he was soon able to develop a one-of-a-kind system that allows his students to progress in a manner that is light years faster than everyone else, and the results have shown. Students of the Renzo Gracie Rockland Jiu-Jitsu Academy consistently come out as Champions in the BJJ competition circuit, a testament of Omar’s teachings.

    Ive been a student under Professor Omar for 3 yrs now, and all i have to say is that he is the best instructor ive come across. I trained in a few schools prior to joining Renzo Gracie Rockland, the other schools were ok, but Omar is very thorough and technical in his teachings and explanations. I urge anyone in the Rockland/Westchester area to go to Renzo Gracie Rockland, you will not regret it.
