Business Description:

For some time now, we've dedicated our lives to bringing the physical, mental, and spiritual benefits of martial arts to the West Hempstead community. Recently, our family has expanded way beyond West Hempstead, into Franklin Square, Garden City, Lynbrook, Rockville Centre, and more ! Through classes geared for men and women of all ages, shapes and sizes, our school itself has become a community of learning and growth. We'd love nothing more than for you to become a part of it. That way you too can enrich your life, learn self-defense, and get in great shape. Together, these three elements lead to a happier, healthier life. After all, for thousands of years, martial arts has been a tool for inner-growth and development. The hard work and patience required to perfect each moves builds discipline, focus and determination. The desire to advance through the ranks develops goal setting and ambition. The rush of passing tests, and seeing how far you've come builds confidence and pride. Helping you succeed in martial arts is the only goal of our West Hempstead program. Everyone here - each of our martial arts instructors - is passionate about helping you succeed, have fun, and enjoy the time you spend here. So come on by and try out the program that's best-suited for you. You can learn more about the classes our West Hempstead school offers, and call us to register for the one that's right for you. Our childrens' program, designed by a New York State certified elementary school teacher, and supported by Powerful Words, one of the leading character development programs in the country, incorporates age appropriate skills and activities to help bring out the best in your child. If you live in the towns of Franklin Square, Garden City, Lynbrook, Valley Stream, Rockville Center, Uniondale, Hempstead, or Baldwin then you are close enough to come train with us!

This is a terrific individual sport with a group feeling. Within 6 weeks of starting the program , my son's school contacted me about improved focus and stamina at school. The teachers have motivated my son and helped his self-esteem in immeasurable ways. We LOVE Popkin - brogna Jujitsu Center and you will too!

My daughter loves going there. She thinks Senseis are super cool and super nice. They have very good and interpersonal communication with parent through a closed parents group on Facebook.

This is an amazing martial arts center. All of the Sensei are not only great teachers in the art of Jujitsu but provide life lessons for children of all ages. I recommend parents give their child/children an experience that will be beneficial to their overall well-being and enroll them with Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center.

We enrolled our daughter as a free trial on Groupon as something for her to do and to help keep her focused. Little did we know we were going to get more than that! Popkin Brogna Jujitsu has built upon the principles that we already established with our daughter: integrity and accountability. All of the Sensei’s and Sempei’s are trained in Jujitsu. The Sensei’s: Steven, Howard, Joseph and the Sempei’s: Stephanie, Nick and Amy all take a vested interest in your child’s development to help them grow and learn a martial art. Also, they have a parent class once a week where you can practice the techniques your children are learning to help them advance. What we really like is they do not do social promotions, which means your child has to really work hard to earn their belt in order to advance. They just opened a brand new state of the art dojo. They have become extended family and we plan on sending our son there when he gets of age.

Pop kin-Brogna Jujitsu Center is more than a dojo. This is the place my daughter went from "being bullied at school" to "wow, how can I get my child to be as confident as yours?". The place where self-respect, self-confidence, and self-control are taught. Not just for the dojo, but for life.

Hands down- best money spent! My two boys 4 and 7, both attend classes at this awesome dojo. It has proved to be exactly what they both needed- a place to build self-confidence, gain greater self-discipline, learn the incredible skills of jujitsu and so much more! Best of all, they are having a ton of fun and look forward to going to class each week. I love this place!

I was interested in signing my child up for Jujitsu classes and was having trouble finding a center I felt comfortable in. We tried a few places, but I was not impressed. My son was 4 at the time I contacted Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center. We tried it out; he was a little hesitant at first. The instructors were very patient and allowed him to take his time to grow into the class. I liked the diverse in the center. They have amazing start-up packages so we gave it a shot! My son is 6, a yellow belt preparing for high-yellow!! They hold great events and parent / child classes which we started attending! I would highly recommend Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center!

Being part of the dojo has helped our daughter develop confidence, which has been amazing to watch! She also has learned mindfulness and has taken on new responsibilities at home. As family we love the welcoming and warm community at the dojo.

Great place, awesome staff. Instructors are on top of their game. My son is now a blue belt and will continue to rise among the ranks. He has shown a commitment to his teachers and part of that is the inspiration the instructors teach. Respect, discipline and a great atmosphere to boot
