Best Jiu-Jitsu School In Phili

What is the best Jiu-Jitsu school in Philadelphia area?

I dunno...Maxwell's place? Isn't that in Philly?

Both of those are great schools. I also recommend BJJ United, Jared Weiner's a Lloyd Irvin Black Belt.

Jared Weiner's place is top notch

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu United

Jared Weiner

Balance Studios

Phil Migliarese

Those are hands down the 2 best.. These 2 schools were spawned when all the top students from Maxercise left. Check them out!!!!!!!!!!!

Why did Maxercise students leave?

Try out all the BJJ academies in Philly and the surrounding burbs on your time schedule and ask questions.

Check out the Schools page of my MMA in PA web site for a listing:

Not to say anything negative about the others, but I would go to Balance. Just watch out for Shaun Smith, he'll try to "check your oil".


Rob Scheier has a school in Philly. HE is a Ricardo Almeida/Renzo Gracie Brown Belt. He is very technical with and without the gi. He could teach you plenty.

email me at if you want his number. My email is working again.

Danny Ives was in philly also but I do not know where his school is located or if it is still open.
