As a female with interest in learning Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a professional and welcoming atmosphere was important to me. I researched and visited about 4 gyms in the Hoboken/ Jersey City area before finding Procel BJJ. Other gyms really don’t compare.

From Professor Brian to a beautiful and clean gym to the fellow students… Everything is A+. Professor Brian goes above and beyond… He answers any and all questions… Is always willing to stay after class to answer questions and work with students one on one. Never having tried BJJ before I was pretty nervous going in. Professor Brian and every student made me feel welcome and very at ease.

I’m very glad I didn’t give up and kept searching until I found Procel BJJ!

I honestly found my passion of Jiu Jitsu because of Brian. I was a student of his at MSU and he showed up to class every day with the intention of making sure everyone there was getting the most out of the sessions. I honestly wouldn't be as involved in the BJJ community as I am now without having Brian as my first professor. If you're looking for a place to train where your professor is just as passionate to watch you mature in the sport as they are with sharing their knowledge then this is where you need to be.

Brian is a fantastic instructor whether you're in year 1 of jiu jitsu or year 15. He cares deeply about his students' development and has the patience of a true teacher. He brings a very positive energy to an often difficult sport. With the perspective of having trained at several schools, I can say that Brian's enthusiasm for jiu jitsu was instrumental in my decision to pursue it long-term...NOW GO TRAIN AT PROCEL BJJ!

Ben Grippi

I have been training in classes taught by Professor Brian Procel for a couple years now and I couldn’t be happier. He’s approachable, he has a great teaching style, and he really cares about each student’s progress. Brian’s deep knowledge of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is obvious. He emphasizes the fundamentals of each technique and explains complex principles in simple easy terms. I’m excited that he’s now moving forward with his own school, which I’m sure will be very successful. Looking forward to taking classes in JC!

Brian Sica

I was part of a group of some of Brian's first students in BJJ and am extremely glad I was able to learn from him. He made the fundamentals and safety a priority for all his students. Brian's vast knowledge and passion for BJJ really shines through every class!

Sara Cleary

Brian is an AWESOME leader and teacher. I’m thankful I’ve learned what I have from him, as he is a dedicated and caring instructor. He genuinely cares about your growth as a student and works hard to make Jiu-Jitsu easily understandable so you can excel quickly and effectively.

I LOVE the attention to detail when explaining moves. It makes it easy for me to learn moves and move forward in my study of BJJ.

Andrew Guadagnino

Brian is one of the most technical instructors I’ve learned from in about 8 years of training. Great class structure, as well as a thorough knowledge of the sport make it incredibly easy to learn in his classes. Take the opportunity to train with him…you won’t regret it. 😎

Professor Brian Procel, who I have had the pleasure and honor of being a student, is an accomplished practioner and competitor and really has a passion for this specialized art. And any good educator has to have the passion that Brian Procel does. If any of my friends in the JC area have had an intererest in BJJ this is the place to call home base.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?

Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?

Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?

Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes

Try something different from the same old routine

Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.

Results and growth with every class!

Studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.

By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.

It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques

The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is designed to help you overcome your fears.

By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.

Best of all, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Students Walk with Confidence and Pride

There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.

Studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.

Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge

Students who have a natural competitive drive love Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.

Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.

No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.

Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.
