The Fatjo's Mixed Martial Arts Method

            Fatjo's Mixed Martial Arts is second to none.  Fatjo's MMA combines the world's most effective martial arts styles, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Submission Grappling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Philippine Weaponry to create the ultimate self-defense.  Together these elements help to combine the energy of the mind, body and spirit, which leads to overall personal development and well-being.


As any wise architect will tell you, a building is only as good as its foundation. The grander the ultimate design, the deeper and more unshakable must be the foundation.

The teaching methods of Fatjo's MMA focus upon practical techniques that work in real fights. Rather than distract and astound you with an array of spectacular techniques that have little or no practical application, we prefer to concentrate on techniques that will help ensure our student's safety. To that end, we feel we have a moral and ethical obligation to offer a curriculum that has been rigidly tested, exhaustively researched, and proven to be an intelligent and practical method with which to address the realities of an actual self defense situation.

Subsequently, there are many techniques that we chose not to teach here at Fatjo's Mixed Martial Arts. Why? Because there are simpler techniques which are more effective. As we emphasize to our students during their first year of training: we could spend an hour showing you 15 or 20 flashy moves, which would leave you suitably impressed, but completely ignorant. You would walk away from each class bedazzled, but no more prepared to defend yourself than when you first arrived. Such a teaching approach does more to appease the ego of the instructors than it does to satisfy the concerns of the students.


At Fatjo's MMA, we are in the business of addressing our students' concerns. Our personnel are not salesmen, we are teachers. Perhaps it is for this very reason we have this commitment to impart useful knowledge to a student from their very first day of instruction.




Stan Altshuller ? 5 star Teaches kids respect, discipline, focus, strength of character and most importantly self confidence. Instructors that really care not just about the performance in class but also how kids behave off the mat.
Small groups, great instruction, good equipment make Fatjos MMA center a fantastic experience for young and growing martial artists.


Marie Braun Pattison ? 5 starBest school ever. The staff at Fatjo's truly care about their students. They are very aware of each students needs and pace them appropriately. I have observed classes with small children to adults. My 12 year old daughter has been coming here for 1 1/2 years. She has gained great confidence and self esteem since joining, not to mention skills and strength. If you are looking for a place to train for you or your child, this is it!




Matawan, NJ

Our family joined the Fatjo's MMA community in 2011 when my husband and daughter signed up for classes.  As a Mother, the things that stand out to me are the thoughtful gestures that take place off the mats.  For example, the annual BBQ, Parties for the kids and opportunities for siblings to keep busy while their sister or brother train.  From a Student's Perspective, my husband LOVES the classes!  He says they provide a great workout while learning a true skill.  As for my daughter, joining Fatjo's MMA has given her goals.  She strives to internalize the techniques and enjoys practicing with my husband at home.  Joining Fatjos MMA has given them a bond that is priceless!  And the individuals behind this great school, Jerry & Maria Fatjo are some of the most humble and kind hearted people I have Ever Met.  They are wonderful role models and take the time to teach the children lessons on kindness, respect, healthy lifestyles and safety.  Fatjo's MMA is truly UNIQUE!
