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!

My Review by tb2082475914 via Citysearch on 12/7/2015

Originally we picked jujitsu as an extracurricular activity, thinking that our 5 year old son would love it. Our 8 year old daughter then begged to go, so we signed her up. Our son enjoyed it and really learned a lot but our daughter…

Sensei Joe and Howie are amazing ... They’re not only excellent martial artists but great people too. They are great with kids and adults. If you want to learn real martial arts from two real gentlemen ... look no further. They make it…

I cannot recommend this school enough.\r \r I have trained in the martial art Aikido for just over 14 years (I’m 21), and my first experience with Daito-ryu Aikijujitsu was with Howard Popkin Sensei and Joe Brogna Sensei at the grand…

Popkin Brogna self defense is the place to be for martial arts instruction. Howard and Joe are top notch instructors with a wealth of knowledge, experience, humor, patience and skill. And both offer such complimentary, yet different…

I'm thankful to be a PBJJC student. The enviroment is friendly and at your own pace. When I have a stressful day, I can leave everything outside the dojo. When I leave the dojo, I'm ready to take on whatever stress that was affecting me…

My Review by miltonc1344504816 via Citysearch on 11/21/2014

Without a doubt, serious martial arts! Senseis Popkin and Brogna are the real deal, they have extensive traditional martial arts training rooted in true Japanese tradition( mainly Daito Ryu Aikijujutsu, and many others). Their teaching…

My Review by patt986101002 via Citysearch on 11/20/2014

I first ran across Howard Popkin at a traditional martial arts seminar outside Seattle. Since that time, I’ve probably attended ten or fifteen seminars with Howard, Joe Brogna, or both them. Every single seminar has been a joy! These…

Popkin-Brogna Jujitsu Center is a phenomenal facility with outstanding staff. If you have a daughter or son, or are looking for a workout for yourself that also gives you self-defense skills, this is the place. The instructors are…

My Review by iana2108089783 via Citysearch on 11/19/2014

Sensei's Popkin and Brogna are the real deal. While they came up under the same tutelage, they've each developed their own take on the art, teaching style and approach. The knowledge, understanding, and ability to break down techniques…
