Why GSBJJ is the Best Women’s BJJ Program In Central Jersey!

At GSBJJ we are extremely proud of the variety of different students we have on the mats. Old, young, experienced, brand new, men, and women – everyone is a respected member of our team.

There are a many reasons why GSBJJ is the BEST women’s BJJ program in Central Jersey.


Reason 1: An Academy Built on Family and Respect!

Due to the success of our kids program we have many families that call GSBJJ their martial arts home. Because of this the culture of our school is positive, non-intimidating, and welcoming to everyone. Some of the rules have in place include:

  • Students must wear a rashguard under their uniforms at all times (so no hairy sweaty chests in your face).
  • No cursing or foul language on the mats.
  • Strict health and Hygiene policies that make sure we do everything necessary to keep everyone safe and clean
  • Students are not permitted to walk around the gym shirtless.
  • An “ask your partner first” policy about sparring with kneebars and toeholds.
  • And strict supervision from instructors.

Aside from the rules we also make sure that all of our students know how to train with someone who may be smaller or less experienced than them. We have created a school culture where even our students are enthusiastic about working with new people to help them reach their goals!

Reason 2: Great Reviews From Our Female Students!

Everyone is always super friendly and welcoming, the classes and techniques are top notch, and the students are great to roll and train with. As a woman, visiting gyms alone can be intimidating (what if everyone here is super agro and I get hurt?), but I have not had anything but great experiences here. Highly recommend! – Beverly Huang

“It is a very friendly environment with experienced coaches. Always have fun training there!” – Natalia Grishina







“Garden State BJJ is a fantastic place to train. This academy can address many needs, whether it’s to get in shape, learn self defense or compete. I highly recommend trying out a class. The instructors and staff are awesome.” – Kristine Brink








Reason 3: Our Women Do Great in Competition As Well!

We have had many of our female students (both kids and adults) able to take home GOLD from various BJJ competitions! The secret is that we have a positive environment that offers the support of a team to allow our students to train to their fullest potential!
We NEVER push or force our students to compete, but if they want to do it, they know that the have the training necessary to be prepared to win.


One of students, Melissa Gardner, is also preparing for an MMA fight next month! Melissa is an experienced kickboxer and has been working with GSBJJ to further develop her ground game to prepare to compete in MMA.
