Pure Mixed Martial Arts Reviews

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu near Rockaway
I can’t say enough wonderful things about Pure MMA. Andy, Mikey and all the instructors are not only world-class athletes and competitors, but also fantastic educators. Pure is incredibly welcoming and supportive and I’m grateful to be a part of the school. Training at Pure has truly changed my life for the better in so many ways. Going to class is always the best part of my day. I would give 6 stars if it was an option 😎

PURE has an atmosphere that cannot be explained. The instructors are top notch, skilled and the most positive people I've ever met in my life. Their positivity is contagious. No matter your age, ability, level of fitness, gender, or level of comfort, you WILL find a place at Pure. I started BJJ at age 47 and at age 51, I have no intentions of stopping. Thank you PURE!

Pure Mixed Martial Arts is a fun and safe atmosphere, where you feel accepted and a part of the team the moment you step on the mats. I have been a member of Pure since day 1, and it has been one of the best decisions I have ever made. The only decision that topped it, would be when I signed my wife and daughters up also. I am happy to see their confidence grow and their skills to defend themselves in any situation. Jiu Jitsu is one of the most practical styles of Martial Arts that anyone can use, no matter of size or strength. Being in Law Enforcement I teach Jiu Jitsu to the recruits at the academy. After a few weeks they are able to control a subject much larger than them and use minimal force. Pure has everything you need, Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Muay Thai, Yoga and cardio programs all in one place.

One of the best decisions I've ever made was signing up at Pure in 2014. Not only are Mikey and Andy great and friendly people, they're essentially jiu jitsu and muay thai encyclopedias. I've been trained for many years at a lot of other gyms and none have been as informative and inviting as Pure. The environment that they have created is second to none and feels like a giant family. Whether you have never trained and are looking to start or have experience and are looking for a different school, you'd be doing yourself a huge disservice by not at least checking it out.

I’ve been a member of Pure for almost a year and a half now. I was super hesitant to join because it was something new and a huge step outside of my comfort zone. Literally, by the end of my first class I was hooked. I felt embraced immediately which really helped with my initial anxiety in joining. Andy and Mikey, along with all of the other coaches create such an amazing learning experience and everyone leaves their ego at the door. Pure really does feel like a second family and I’ve made great friends in my short tenure there. I cannot imagine finding another gym, especially given the size, that would have such a friendly environment where everyone is out to help one another. Beginning Jiu Jitsu, but more specifically joining Pure, has been one of the best life decisions I have ever made.

Whatever discipline you’re looking to get involved with, Pure has it all. You won’t regret it.

We just moved here to New Jersey from California and my husband and son at first struggled to find a Gym that they loved and felt they could grow in their jiujitsu game. When my husband was looking for facilities none of them felt right to him but when he found Pure to continue their Jiujitsu journey, it was the perfect fit. My husband and son both have advanced so well and even added an additional course, Judo. They love it. There is so much opportunity to grow and continue to learn new techniques there. They love it and look forward to going everyday. It’s a plus for both of them and 5 stars for Pure. The kids program is awesome and the teaching levels are amazing. Everyone is like family and good friends. Everyone helps each other out and that’s always a plus in my books. We highly recommend this place for everyone in every level of skills. Great place for sure.

Joining Pure is hands down one of the best decisions I have ever made! I can't say enough about the amazing instruction by not only the Main Brothers themselves, but their other fantastic coaches as well. The atmosphere has always been warm and welcoming, and I have met an amazing group of training partners - turned friends! The Pure family far surpasses my initial expectations of trying a new martial art.

I've never been in a place with a more friendly, open and encouraging environment, and yet the training that goes on here is deadly serious and the trainers and coaches are as good as they come. I train here myself and I bring my 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter here too. In the short time I've been training here I've been welcomed and made a part of a large team where every member is dedicated to the betterment of not only themselves, but of everyone they train with. This place (and the coaches, training partners and families that make it great) continue to allow me to grow and challenge myself and my entire life is better for it. There's no place else like it - come in and see for yourself.

I have been training at Pure for about a year now and it's been a great experience. Andy, Mikey, and all of the coaches care about each students progression. No matter what your goals are, there is something for everyone and it is done so in an environment that allows each person to learn. I believe there's Black Friday specials going on now too, so if you're looking to start getting in shape for the New Year, having fun, and meeting a lot of people, this is the place to be... See you there!

Pure MMA is an incredible academy. Main brothers Andy and Mikey are passionate instructors who are true experts at their craft. They have an enthusiasm for martial arts that is highly contagious. The academy is very welcoming for kids and adults alike and the family atmosphere makes all students immediately feel at home. I've spent more than a decade training martial arts, in that time I've been on the mat with UFC champions and elite black belts across the nation - I can confidently say that the Main Brothers are two of the very best martial artists I've ever encountered. I give them my highest endorsement.

I've been to a few schools in the area and I'm grateful that I've landed at Pure Mixed Martial arts. The good part....The facility is immaculate and there is always plenty of parking.

Now for the great part. This is not your cookie-cutter school. From the second you walk in you feel nothing short of welcomed. Wether you are a competitor or someone who simply enjoys martial arts and wants to get in shape, Andy & Mike are the real deal and are there to offer you a wealth of knowledge and encouragement. There are also plenty of higher level belts on the matt to train with that are willing to help out new comers such as myself.

Furthermore, Pure offers almost a dozen morning and evening kickboxing & fitness classes. John, Nick, & Erin always have exciting classes planned ahead and will get you in shape. In addition to kickboxing & fitness, John leads a team of exemplary black belt children's Tae Kwon Do instructors. My son has had the pleasure of training with this team and I can't say enough great things about them.

Simply put. An excellent school with great instructors and great people to train with.

Pure MMA is a great place!  My daughter loves the TKD classes and instructors and has expanded into kids Jiu-Jitsu and Main Chicks Jiu-Jitsu and loves it!  The location is extremely clean, the owners and instructors are incredibly friendly and supportive, and price is very reasonable.  There are so many classes to choose from. Kids movie nights and parties are great too!  Definitely check them out.

Training at the Main Brothers Academy is a powerful experience. You truly get the best of all worlds. Mike and Andy Main embody what true martial artists are - through their talent, their dedication, their achievements and the way they live their lives in general. They are superior instructors with an ever increasing following of like minded students, who are dedicated to living empowered, positive lives on and off the mats. The benefits of training reach every area of my life. My 11 year old son trains too and is equally impacted by the mental and physical benefits that come with learning at an academy of this level. It is a true gem!
