Not too long ago, we at had the opportunity to visit a secret gem in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu community that many are not aware of. That gem goes by the name of Paul “Opie” Fahey.  Paul is a BJJ Black Belt under Matt and Nick Serra of Long Island, New York.  Along with the Serra brothers, Paul has trained with such notables as Leo Dalla, Pete “Drago” Sell, Rhadi

Paul Correcting A Student's Technique

Ferguson, Lloyd Irvin, Renzo Gracie, Rodrigo Gracie, and Carlos Gracie Jr. among many others.

As you’ll surely notice, Opie’s ability to breakdown a technique to expose it’s intricacies is uncanny.  Like a surgeon performing a routine  surgery, Paul possesses the gift to express his expertise on seemingly all aspects of grappling to the most naive of practitioners. If you are in the New Jersey area, be sure to stop by the Combat Athlete MMA training facility located inside the Club 46 Fitness Center.
