What I believe that separates Professor Thompson out from other instructors that I have encountered is his dedication to all of his students. He not only gives the same amount of dedication to his high ranks and the people who compete, he gives this same level of attentiveness to any student who gets down on the mat that day. More...

Professor Joe is an amazing coach. He introduced me to the sport of BJJ and I wouldn't want to learn under anyone else. Great guy on and off the mat. Makes you feel welcome during every class and makes you love BJJ more every time you hit the mat. More...

Professor Joe is an awesome Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor. He makes sure he guides his students for success on the mat within the art, and off the mat with life. He doesn't just teach BJJ, he teaches patience and respect. Makes sure everyone in class grasps the understanding of the moves and techniques and explains them extremely thoroughly. The most dedicated man I know & I'm proud to say I train under Professor Joe Thompson! More...

Joe and the team are amazing! They took time to host an event last weekend for FIres & Drums Foundation, and the turnout was great. Even greater was the kindness, support and warmth demonstrated by Joe and family on that day. Thank you so much! I wish you all the success in the world!

Professor Joe is an amazing man! He introduced bjj to us, he not only shows bjj and what to expect on the mat but also off it! To put it in lifestyle choices and that is very important cause everything we do is about life! So everyone check professor Joe out and give it a chance you probably end up loving it and staying becoming a family! More...

Joe Thompson is an amazing person, great role model, and excellent instructor. He has helped me a ton in my Brazilian jiu-jitsu journey. Soo unbelievably motivated and reliable. He has always welcomed everyone with open arms, and will go out of his way to help. No doubt this school is going to be the best in the area to train and learn. Stop in for a class, you won't regret it. More...

Professor Joe Thompson has inspired me to continue the Jiu Jitsu journey! He was awarded his black belt by a true BJJ legend, Alexandre Soca. Master Soca and Professor Joe both are still competing at the highest level, so you will get nothing but the best technique, whether you are training for competition, self defense, weight-loss/fitness, or just trying something new, this is the environment to achieve whatever goal you seek.

Beautiful academy, great group of guys, features all the respect and discipline of a traditional martial arts school with the modern techniques of the the greatest fighting style ever known to man. I haven't known Professor Thompson long but I've been around the BJJ and MMA community on Long Island for over a decade and Professor Thompson is as knowledgeable and as detail focused an instructor as I've ever come across. He is also honest and trust worthy, and one of the top students of all time great Master Soca. Tremendous place to learn whether you are a complete newbie or a grizzled veteran!! More...

Professor Joe is a great BJJ coach. A fearless competitor himself, he can work with you to help you become a great BJJ competitor. If getting in shape is your goal, he is a great motivator and will give you excellent advice on and off the mats. Most of all, you will have fun training BJJ with Professor Joe and his highly skilled students! More...

I have been training with Professor Joe for over two years. I have not felt so energized and fit in my life since I started taking his Brazilian JiuJitsu classes. Whether you want to go as just a hobby or competition Lockdown is the place to go. Thank you Professor. More...

Prof. Joseph Thompson is one of the best instructors in BJJ. Not everyone who decides to practice BJJ is there for competing - although he can definitely coach effectively if that's what you're looking to do. He models what many instructors today in the latest academy to pop up fail to remember - thanks to the popularity of MMA - and that is BJJ is a Martial Art. He understands and emphasizes to his students what that encompasses, both off and on the mats. He's patient and will work with you a million times, if necessary, to ensure you are learning a particular technique correctly the first time around. The time and dedication he provides his students is truly selfless and if you decide to take part in Lockdown BJJ as your BJJ home base, you will not be disappointed; you'll be lucky to have him as your coach.

Professor Joe Thompson is an Amazing Instructor. I look forward to every Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class at LockDown. Been training for 1 year and have already won a gold medal at a competition. Did I mention I'm 50. I'm in the best shape of my life. Professor Joe pushes everyone to reach a persons full potential. My cholesterol has never been lower and I lost all my extra fat and lost 3 inches on my waist. The atmosphere at LockDown is electric. One of the most positive places I've ever been too and everyone is treated like family. Professor Joe is awesome training adults both men and women, teens, and kids. More...

Professor Joseph Thompson is one of the most thorough, caring professors in the sport. He doesn't stop until the whole class is on the same page and grasping the move of the week. Patience and determination flows off him as does what he does best; teach this sport to others. Been with Joseph Thompson since the beginning, best choice I made was to join the family of Lockdown BJJ More...
