As an instructor myself, I'm obsessed with the tiniest detail! Matteo is meticulous and will make sure that you have the knowledge to properly perform the techniques you need to win a tournament! The dojo is clean and not flashy like some other franchise spots that are all about looks, but offer nothing in the way of real Bjj! It's just four walls and mats...let's roll!!! More...

Easily the most welcoming atmosphere I’ve ever experienced in my life. Matteo is a great guy who knows what he’s doing on the mat as well and will teach you the Matteo way.

Matteo is an amazing person and awesome Bjj teacher and competitor. He has taught me many things, and he is very loyal to his students. He is very passionate about jujitsu and it shows in all his accomplishments. Anytime I am in the area I pass by to get a roll, tuff as nails. If you live in the area there is no other place to train, wish I can pass by more. More...

If you’re in the Mahopac Area and want to learn high quality Jiu Jitsu from a great competitor, student, teacher and friend then visit MatteoBjj. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing, training and learning from Matt for years and I would highly recommend anyone to visit his academy. More...

What ever your age or experience level, MatteoBJJ is the place to be. My 6 year old daughter had the same feeling of comfort and excitment that I myself had while training with Matteo. His attention to detail and his ability to take complicated moves and make them seem simple is effortless and uncanny. When he moved to his new location, it almost doubled my commute but I never thought for a second to find a new gym. You’ll quickly excel in the sport and become part of a family as everyone who’s walked through his doors has. Look no further, if you want to learn REAL BJJ this is the spot hands down. More...

Matteo takes the time to ensure you have right mechanics down for learning jiu jitsu and helps you improve not only technique but also fitness wise.The environment at the gym is also very friendly, professional and well maintained. Highly Recommend!!! More...

My kids and I have been training with Matteo for a couple of years now. His Jiu Jitsu game is tight (he's a beast!) and his teaching style is on point. He breaks everything down into step by step instruction and doesn't move on until he's confident that you as a student know your stuff. Then what he teaches you next builds on what came before so you're learning and mastering sequences of moves instead of random, unrelated movements. Even the warm-ups are geared to this philosophy; if he's going to teach you a guard pass you're going to warm up that night doing knee slices. In all endeavors in life there are people who excel; rare are the few who excel and can explain the why and the how and impart it to others. Matteo is one of these latter few: he's perfecting his own Jiu Jitsu while helping us get better at ours. More...

World class competitor and teacher. Matteo has a patient warm and incredibly detailed approach to BJJ. If you are a first timer nervous about starting or an already accomplished practitioner Matteo and his style will immensely enhance your love for the sport and give you the ability to go further.

Being in education for over 15 years I understand the talent and skill of good teaching. Matteo is clear and direct with his instruction and I often find myself saying "next level $#!/ " when drilling what he just taught. I make it a point to attend his classes when I know he is teaching. In summary.... sharp, clear and applicable.. More...

MatteoBJJ is located right off of Rte. 6 in Mahopac. The instructor Matteo is a black belt under Black Belt Jojo Guarin (Carlson Gracie lineage), and is a highly skilled athlete. Matteo's attention to detail on techniques are fantastic, and his lesson plans are thought out and executed over a week basis. The classes usually start with a conditioning warm-up/workout, followed by 2-3 techinques that are broken down, which you will do multiple timed repetitions on with a partner. Once class is over, the mats are open to spar/roll.The atmosphere is very friendly, and you're quick to become family there.I definitely recommend training here. More...

Matteo is the real deal. He entirely encompasses the art in his gentle approach to dismantling his opponents. All you need to do is roll with him once to know there is much he can teach you. While it is self-evident that his understanding of technique runs deep, Matteo has also mastered the mindset necessary to excel in this sport. Much love and respect! More...

I have trained a bunch of times with Matteo at different places along the way. It's about time he has his own place to settle in and pass on his knowledge. One of the most talented, knowledgeable, and well spoken Jiu Jitsu coaches I've ever met. Looking forward to making some trips up to visit! More...

Matteo is fantastic at what he does and I can't speak highly enough about him and his teaching methods. Whether you are a parent looking for a martial arts activity or an adult looking to change your life for the better in several ways, MatteoBJJ is the place for you. A review can't do Matteo or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu justice. If you are reading this and at all considering BJJ, you should stop by some time and see what it is all about. More...

Matteo is an excellent teacher. He breaks down complex moves into component parts and spends a lot of time (weeks on a sequence) drilling them into his students so that they become a part of mind-muscle memory. He's great with kids as well as adults; very patient. He's also an excellent competitor and human being himself, someone his students can be proud of. The atmosphere here is friendly and supportive and competitive in a healthy way. Every martial arts school has one or two jerks (guys who go too hard against lower ranks, the opposite gender, etc.), but this school doesn't. Matteo doesn't allow it. More...

Matteo is the best. His knowledge of the sport is rich and he has an incredible talent of teaching in way that’s easy to understand. There hasn’t been one training session go by without me feeling light years ahead of the previous one. My daughter is almost 6 now and she’s been training with his kids class for a few months now. He has a unique ability to keep the kids entertained and engaged. My daughter has a HUGE amount of respect for Matteo and although she can get a little crazy compared to some of the older kids, the way he handles all of it is impressive and inspiring. The new training facility is top notch! Although it’s a bit further from me than the last spot, I would drive even further to learn from him and to maintain the relationship with the Jiu-Jitsu family he has built at Matteo BJJ. Look no further, come in a train. It’s the best thing that ever happened to me. More...
