ATT as it’s commonly referred to has trained and developed over 67 fighters in the largest Mixed Martial Arts (“MMA”) organizations such as the UFC (“Ultimate Fighting Championship”), WEC, Strikeforce, Bellator, PRIDE, K-1, DREAMS and Sengoku.

That same knowledge, born out of hard work, perseverance, and dedication honed from our professional MMA fight team, has been passed down to our students who train in MMA, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Submission Grappling, Kickboxing, Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Kids MMA, Women’s Fitness, and Cross Training.

Our lineage can be traced back to the legendary Carlson Gracie where his vision, open-mind, and trademark aggressive, attacking style have greatly influenced us.
We bring all of this knowledge to our students where we instruct and train beginners, advanced, kids and adults all with the same desire to help you achieve your goals.






Not all MMA gyms are the same!

Unfortunately there are more “wannabies” then there are real gyms. “wannabie” gyms are fly by night instructors who teach kickboxing and call it authentic muay thai. “wannabie” gyms are owners and instructors who try to sell you that they are tough guys who are undefeated on the streets so training with them will make you tough also! “wannabie” gyms are karate dojos offering “MMA Programs”.


When you visit a gym ask them if they have:

  • UFC Fighters

  • Certified Krus in Muay Thai

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belts

  • All American Wrestlers

  • Golden Glove Boxers

  • Muay Thai Champions

  • MMA Champions

  • Boxing Champions

  • BJJ Champions

Experience at
"Wannabies Gym"

Unqualified Instructors

With the rising popularity in MMA a lot of Karate schools are now promoting that they are a Mixed Martial Arts school. DON’T BE FOOLED just because some has a background in Martial Arts does not mean they are qualified to teach MMA. Jiu Jitsu schools will throw you in a gi and tell you that this will help you in MMA because it’s Jiu Jitsu. Again DON’T BE FOOLED, traditional gi jiu jitsu is a great sport but it isn’t geared specifically for MMA.

Little to no Takedowns

Many academies have instructors with little to no takedown experience and will teach their students poor and useless technique which can lead to injury. Many “MMA” schools haven’t embraced wrestling and are stills stubborn to teach only guard jumping and judo throws which may be extremely ineffective in Mixed Martial Arts.

Low Level Striking

With Kickboxing, Boxing, and Muay thai classes sprouting up in every Weight lifting gym and martial arts gym in the world it’s hard to decide who knows what? The Majority of these places have instructors with little to no experience in actual boxing, or muay thai, and use kickboxing as a draw to bring in fitness clients. Many unfortunately mislead students into a false sense of security with their striking classes until they actually have to use it and are shown how much they didn’t know.

Badly equipped facility

A lot of academies have a small mat area a couple of punching bags and worn down pads, with a couple of weight lifting pieces of equipment and a treadmill. They will try to sell you that you don’t need a lot of equipment and the training itself is all you need. WRONG! not only will having a fully equipped academy increase the level of your training it is also safer to have proper equipment.

Dirty Facility

Many academies are dirty with the owners believing people who train in mma don’t care what the facility looks like as long as they receive hardcore training. WRONG! not only does having a clean facility look nice but it is medically necessary as dirty gyms are filled with bacteria and can be a cess pool for viruses, like ring worm, staph infection/MRSA, and impetigo. Most of these gyms create an environment with lack of rules that encourages bad hygiene, and when the majority of these gyms lacking a shower students are unable to wash up after practice which is mandatory. For your own safety please do not train at a gym if it is dirty because it could be hazardous to your health.

No MMA Ranking system

We are the only gym in New York with a Mixed Martial Arts ranking system. Many gyms that advertise "MMA" are Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu schools that throw punches and kicks once in a while – and promote through their kimono BJJ ranking system… The BJJ ranking system has been known for years to have a very poor wrestling and striking curriculum… so if they are claiming to be qualified in MMA based solely on their BJJ rank… ask them who coached them in kickboxing and what was their credentials… ask them who they learned how to wrestle from – if they say another BJJ person, this doesn’t leave them off the hook!

No Safety

Many MMA schools have this misconception that the only way to learn how to fight is to put on boxing gloves and swing for the fences! This is not true… and actually can be counter-productive, besides dangerous. Many gyms also lack the technique to spar with control and spar hard to compensate for their lack of technique. Brawling during training proves nothing and only hinders the learning process and injures people. If you really want to brawl, save it for the street or in the cage.

Losing team

Unfortunately because of lack of training, conditioning, guidance and commitment many schools fail in competition. Every Academy wants to win but very few possess the right formula for winning. And with new academies trying to establish their pride many of their students are forced into competition way before they are ready, usually resulting in a lose that can end their passion for the sport. Lack of researching, game plan formulating, and cage side coaching leaves many of these fighters on their own which sadly results in a losing. With no system of winning in place it’s hard for fighters in these academies to ever excel.

One Class maybe two if your lucky

Most gyms are insecure that you won’t sign up if you take their class, now if they don’t want you to take the class because they feel you won’t sign up then is that place for you? Ask them for a month of Free Training and they will laugh in your face! WHY? Because your only important to them if you pay. Most schools just want to throw you in classes and drag you thru training without caring why you even wanted to do Martial Arts. Don’t be a member of a gym that no one knows be a Member of the Biggest Mixed martial Arts TEAM in the WORLD!

“I want to learn Mixed Martial Arts but I need to get in shape first before I start”

“WRONG! Why hesitate on what you always wanted to do? You don’t need to be in shape to start training in Mixed Martial Arts. Training alone will help your burn thousands of calories and get you back in shape while you learn legitimate technique and skills.

“I’m a Professional and I don’t want to leave the gym with black eyes and a busted lip!”

Our classes are designed to allow everyone to participate in a safe controlled manner, so that you can learn technique, get a workout in, and let some stress out while never leaving the gym injured or scared. Our classes are separated into different levels of contact so students can control their exposure from no contact pad work out to full contact sparring. No student is ever forced to do more than they can but all will be pushed to levels they never seen achievable.



“I always wanted to do Mixed Martial Arts but I’m too old”

“No one is ever too old to participate in Martial Arts training, the only thing that changes is the level of intensity and the amount of contact both which can be controlled by you while training at our facility. We have many students well into their 50’s that still participate weekly in our Muay Thai Kickboxing program. It’s not just for fighting: new research published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine shows that people in their 40′s and 50′s who regularly practice martial arts demonstrate astounding levels of physical fitness in comparison to people the same age who don’t exercise at all. The study subjects who practiced martial arts had 12% less body fat, were able to do twice as many sit-ups, had enhanced flexibility and leg strength, demonstrated a stronger immune system and showed greatly improved balance.”


“I’m a teenager looking to train Mixed Martial Arts how do I convince my parents that it’s safe?”

There is no need to convince your parents, only educating your parents on the importance of martial arts training and how safe it really is. Its normal for people to see MMA as violent because of its competition aspect, However Mixed Martial Arts training is extremely safe and fun. What you see in competition is just that competition, but the training aspect in unparalled anywhere in the sports field. Safety is our number one goal! We have created an environment where students can learn effective techniques, how to control those techniques, get in amazing shape and combat the “childhood obesity crisis” and build team and leadership qualities thru mentorship programs in the gym. For any questions please contact one of our consultants with any further questions

“I’m only interested in Boxing do you offer that?”

We have a great and unique boxing program! Why?

Here at American Top Team you can do all of that plus take two of our Hour Long classes in Boxing where you will receive mitt work, drilling, and guidance from instructors. Don’t get lost in the gym be part of a Team!

Head striking coach Rodney Libramonte adds his extensive training and fight experience into the mix to develop a well-rounded Championship winning striking style.

“I’m only interested in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu do you offer that?”

YES! Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is SOLID! With a well-rounded style of world class wrestling combined with Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to create a ground fighting system that wins tournament after tournament championship after championship. Our Head Coach David Martucci trained and learned submission grappling from MMA legends such as Pat Miletich, Mat Hughes, and Ricardo Liborio. Our Jiu Jitsu coach Bryan Vettel is professional heavyweight MMA fighter who competed with the Pitbulls in 2007 season of the IFL which they went on to win!
