About us.

The “Nicholas Scott Catone Training Center” named after Nick’s late son is a 31,300 square foot state of the art training facility located in Bricktown NJ, and is a Ricardo Almeida / Renzo Gracie affiliate gym. We first opened a 3,200 square ft. facility on September 18, 2010. The following year, in November of 2011, the academy expanded to a 5,200 square ft training facility. Just two years later in November of 2013 we expanded a second time to 8,000 square ft. facility. On December 19, 2017 Nick Catone purchased the building we now occupy, which opened its doors September 8, 2018 on Nick’s late son Nicholas’s 3rd birthday who unexpectedly passed away at the age of 20 months on May 12, 2017. The beautiful facility was built and now stands in memoram of his son Nicholas.
