Due to an unfortunate building leak at the original GMA Marcelo Garcia Academy in New York, New York, the decorated middleweight champion and all his students were forced to temporarily relocate. The mandatory move was made in August of 2012. The location they chose to use was also unfortunately in the path of Hurricane Sandy and that too was flooded, causing another mandatory relocation.
Today marks the newest opening for Marcelo and the New York City students as they open a new location on 250 W 26th St on the third floor.
Classes are resuming as per the original schedule, allowing the practitioners to feel home once again.
Jiu-Jitsu is about adapting and staying positive so once again, Marcelo and his team shows us how it’s done. Congratulations on the new location!
