Soccer at Manhattan Kickers FC - The River School Manhattan Kickers FC - The River School 1 Photo 2 Video

Our goal as a coaching staff is to develop each player individually so that they can progress through the levels of the Manhattan Kickers Football Club (ages 4-12) and into MLS Academies or our affiliate club, Metropolitan Oval (ages 13-18). 

We train at least three times during the week from September through June using a curriculum that focuses intensely on individual ability and game intelligence.Practice sessions aim to develop individual technique including dribbling, passing, shooting, and tactics (decision-making).

On weekends, the players ages 5-8 will participate in small-sided games (4v4, 3v3, 2v2) in a low-pressure environment where the focus is on utilizing the skills that were honed in training. We are strictly focused on player development (both short- and long-term) and not concerned with competition until the players are ready. In the small-sided environment, the players will have more exposures to the ball as well as be an active participant in a match. Players ages 9-12 will play games against local competition.

MKFC's club teams (U6-U11) have a 10-month season running from late August through late June. For ages U4 and U5, the club offers a seasonal Little Kickers program as well as satellite programs in Queens and Brooklyn. During the summer, the club offers MKFC camps as well as affiliate camps. We also offer a trip for selected players to Barcelona and the Mediterranean International Cup.

Jiu-Jitsu at Unity Jiu-Jitsu School Unity Jiu-Jitsu School 1 Photo

All of the classes at Unity Jiu Jitsu are all-levels. Pro Training sessions are practices for Blue Belt and above.

Our unique Introductory Program ensures that nobody enters regular class without understanding the basics of Jiu Jitsu, and being able to comfortably and competently participate. The Introduction Class consists of one 45-minute lesson required for anyone new to Jiu Jitsu.

Our Women’s Program is integrative, meaning we have taken measures to ensure that gender isn’t an issue for getting the best training possible. We want women in all our classes, and in any given class you will have the option of training with another female, should you want to.

Instructors:

  • Murilo Santana — A world-renowned Jiu Jitsu competitor and instructor, Murilo Santana has fought all over the world, winning some of his sport’s most prestigious titles. He has also taught Jiu Jitsu all over the world for more than 15 years, attaining a reputation for his knowledge and attention to detail. He is an Open Weight World Champion, and a coach of numerous other black belt World Champions and vice-Champion;

She trains and competes under Cicero Costha’s PSLPB Social Project, a project that brings underprivileged children into Jiu Jitsu;
  • Paulo & Joao Miyao are black belts in Jiu Jitsu under Cicero Costha. Considered prodigies of the sport since their teens, they virtually closed out all major competitions around the world in the lower ranks. What’s more, they won medals at the top tournaments in the absolute division (a division in which all weight classes are allowed to compete), including the World Championships in 2013. Their accomplishment is especially impressive for fighters of 64 kg (141 lbs);
  • Leandro Lo Pereira is one of the top Jiu Jitsu competitors in the lightweight division who often ventures successfully in the middle weight and open weight divisions. A black belt under Cicero Costha, Leandro Lo became an overnight sensation after he defeated Michael Langhi – April 2011 – on his way to the top spot of the World Pro Cup in Abu Dhabi. Since the win in the Middle East, Leandro Lo has cemented himself as one of the best ‘Pound for Pound’ in Jiu Jitsu with wins at the World Championships, the prestigious Copa Pódio and Pan American Championships;
  • Yago De Souza — He was born in Bahia, Brazil. He moved to Sao Paulo and began training at Cicero Costha’s as a teenager. A world-class brown belt, Yago is currently a multi-time European Champion, Brazilian National Champion, NY Open Champion, Boston Open absolute Champion, and now World Champion at middleweight;
  • Devhonte "Bones" Johnson — started his Jiu Jitsu career in December of 2011, training at Edson Carvalho BJJ where he remained training for three years. As a blue belt, he won the 2014 No Gi World Championships, double gold at the 2014 No Gi Pan Americans, and multiple IBJJF Open Championships;
  • Edwin “Junny” Ocasio — At an early age he was interested in wrestling and in high school Junny was on the East Stroudsburg North wrestling team.

After completing surgery, and two years of physical therapy, he joined Ronin Athletics in pursuit of Mixed Martial Arts. In training for MMA, he found his true passion for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. He made a name for himself in the local scene by winning and placing in competition, and then in 2014 he received his Purple Belt.
