Next Evolution Martial Arts

We are a family oriented academy focusing on helping others be the best versions of themselves. We’ve been making a difference in the Spanish Harlem/Upper East Side area since 2005. We are the 1st authentic Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Academy established in Spanish Harlem. We offer structured child development programs for children ages 3+. We also offer adult programs for those looking to learn self-defense, get in incredible shape or even for those who have a desire to compete. Our programs for children include Kaizen Karate Do (a mixture of Shotokan, Ninjutsu and Tae Kwon Do), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, an After School Program with pick up service and full day Summer Camp. For adults, we offer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing.

Through these disciplinary programs, we will help you and/or your child achieve their goals which will help them for the rest of their lives. Our foundation and curriculum focus on respect, confidence, loyalty, encouragement, and mental, physical and spiritual strength.

Martial Arts is a tool in which we use to help others become the best versions of themselves. We are a traditional martial art school with a modern twist. We hold a strong standard of loyalty, integrity and respect.

We have been active members of the Next Evolution family for the past two years. Such a great place to give my child the confidence and discipline he receives with every class. So happy to be part of this great place!

Wonderful martial arts studio. My boys learned so much in such a short amount of time. They’re like a second family.

Shihan Mike Mullero and the staff at Next Evolution are some of the kindest, most generous people you will ever meet. Many children in the neighborhood and from all over NYC benefit from the classes here, and adults of all ages and skill levels will enjoy training and reaching their goals at this dojo.

Great service, great people. My family has been involved since my daughter was 5. She takes BJJ and Karate. Best experience and investment ever.

I love this place, my 11 year old has been going for 3 years now and absolutely loves it. He's exposed to positive role models, from teenagers to adults, and I can hear all the positive affirmations reflective in his everyday conversations. School hasn't been easy for us but Next Evolution and its family has always been in our corner, supporting and backing me up always. It's brought him confidence, maturity, respect and discipline. I'll continue to grow here because it's more than just a class, it's an experience, it's a family, it's love, I'm not sure I can just get that anywhere.

Next evolution martial arts is the perfect place to keep our kids off the streets and out of trouble. In addition to multiple martial art classes, they conveniently offer after school and summer camp. My daughter has been taking their self-defense class for the past 6 months and she loves it!!!!
