Gene Simko - Gene Simco

Very pleased. See other reviewers comments.

"He doesn’t need it (marketing) to sell his books because quite frankly his books speak for themselves, they are excellent." - Rob Kahn

“He shows a bunch of different techniques. He doesn’t just show what he’s good at. He shows what works with me and how to improve my game.” – Mike Wacker (Poughkeepsie Journal Article - 12/02)

Gene Simco is one of the most technical jiu jitsu instructors on the east coast. His students are a testament to that statement. -- Brian Cimmins, Grapplers Quest tournament director

“Gene Simco has an excellent system for teaching BJJ that has helped my game continue to grow. 3.5 years of training under Gene and I’m a Purple Belt World Champion! ‘Nuff Said!” - Steven Olivier, Pan American BJJ Champion, World BJJ Champion, Koral Sponsored Fighter

Gene Simko - He's a complete ***

Fresno, California 10 comments

This guy sucks at jiu jitsu, but he pretends to be a badass.More like a *** ***.

*** this *** *** *** and his *** ***. Seriously, though. He sucks. He would probably eat the turd out of a pregnant elephant if he thought there was $100 in it for him...

don't you think he'll scam you of your money if you train with him?

He's really not great at jiu jitsu. He's a phony black belt at BJJ. BJJ is unforgiving of phony black belts like no other art.

Don't be scammed by this sucker.

Well, when you look around, you see a lot of very reputable and accomplished people saying good things about him and his instruction. As far as fancy schools, if a fraud can do it, then why can't you? Perhaps he produces great students and has a ton of them because he's good at what he does ...?

As far as not competing - neither does John Danaher and a whole handful of other BJJ Black Belts. Greg Jackson runs one of the best MMA camps in the country and he hasn't won anything.

Not rolling? Not true -it's easy to research that one and debunk it. Besides, even if he didn't, a lot of great coaches don't.

There are plenty of BJJ Black Belts who took different belts from different instructors along the way.

Actually it would be even more impressive if everything bad about him was true: not a black belt, never competed in anything, never rolls - yet he has these huge schools and produces students that win. That would make him even more impressive.

This is obviously all coming from people with a motivation to spread bad things about him - most likely competing schools - which is actually the worst thing going on here.

Whoever posted "Facts" is way out of line and completely wrong. It was stated that he never competed: this is untrue. He never rolls: untrue. He received his Black Belt from a legit BJJ Black Belt and produces good students. He does his job well. The other allegations are completely untrue and anything of a sexual nature can be easily dismissed if you check the sex offense registry - he's not on there.

The only thing questionable here is why people are going out of their way to annonymously post these things here ... what's the motivation? Competing school perhaps?

Why don't you try and accomplish something on your own.

Ive seen Gene roll so I don't know where this stuff about him not rolling comes from.

As far as the past stuff, if you weren't there how can you speculate? Its easy to spread rumors its harder to back it, so you are just spewing hot air.

As far as the allegations, nothings come to fruition and the connections of the "victim" to competitors is pretty interesting. Sounds like a set up if you ask me but you guys cant grasp that can you.

Mr. Anonymous and Mr.Omoplata you probably just couldn't hang which is why you are so angry. Good luck on your belts, sounds like you'll need it.

If you've been training under Gene for 10 years, and you say he's a stand up guy and legitimate, then you are either blind, *** or on his payroll.He got every one of his belts from a different person you dipshit.

None of that is his students fault but the fact remains that he's a fraud and aside from all the jiu-jitsu *** he's guilty of, he's also a *** piece of *** as a human being. Open up your *** eyes.

I would hope that you strive to wear a black belt someday.Do you really want it to be from someone like Gene Simco?

Nobody ever said Gene doesn't have top-notch students.The FACT is he doesn't roll with his students, he doesn't compete - never has, and his lineage to his black belt is extremely questionable at that.

None of that is debatable. Money allows you to have pretty training facilities and pay MMA guys to teach (no way in *** Simco is teaching MMA himself since he's never stepped in the cage or the ring before). Those are all facts.

No insults, no *** flaming or any of that.FACTS.

While the original post is ridiculous, how do the defenders of Mr.Simco explain his conviction of endangering the welfare of a child charge?

Do the police officers he trains realize he was accused of molesting a 14 year old girl after getting her drunk at his house and taking her to bed with he and his wife?Simco is explaining it away as a made up story motivated by professional jealousy, but stay tuned since the real information disclosed in his court case will be available soon...

I would like to set the record straight...first of all...Gene Simco is a stand up guy and a remarkable instructor.While it is true he runs programs out of karate schools, he recently left from one place in Wappingers Falls he was teaching out of.

This was a great move because the place we were was run (in my opinion) by a total lowlife. He has since left to open his own "STABLE" school in the City of Newburgh. I am not quite sure what the comment about "being safe" around the new school. Are you a racist?

Do you know that Mr. Simco teaches half priced martial arts to children in the City of Newburgh, offering them a safe alternative to crime and street life? And if Newburgh is such as "scary" place for you, I suggest you go back to NYMAG and learn how to defend yourself seeing as the probram you currentl;y chose to train in has not given you the confidence to do so chump! Not to mention...doesn't it take courage and confidence to open any business in this ecominic climate, much less a business in a urban area.

Also Mr. Racist, 50% of the City of Newburgh Police Department trains under the direction of Mr. Simco, so if you are really that scared we could provide you with an escort to your car like we do for our Women's Program. I can also say that Gene is signing close to 40 students a week between his now THREE training centers (who are also thriving) so if he is a failure in business, I want to fail just like him!!!

I find this guys post...

It is just another attempt by a local competitor to try a smear Gene Simco. IP ADDRESSES ARE TRACEABLE and I am sure the Detectives in the City of Newburgh Police would love to aide in finding out where this came from. I hope Mr.

Simco files for slander.:grin

I agree that the person who posted those remarks is pretty vulgar, however its known that NYMAG closed its doors for business on Noxon Rd.when he couldn't "manage the school" or his students properly.

He then began conducting classes out of his home in Hyde Park which I was very unhappy with.

I chose to move on and train at a school that was much more stable and didn't have a student body filled with huge egos.I see on the internet that he has piggybacked with karate schools in the area and opened a very small school in the City of Newburgh...driving into that part of town you better know how to defend yourself!...it seems that he still lacks the courage and confidence to open a school and provide a stable place for his students to train...I guess thats what happens when you fail in business

Obviously whomever posted this "review" is not very intelligent.

This comment was posted by local competition at the same time they opened a competing school, and who happened to have trained in NYMAG under Gene Simco for over 5 years.

Frauds don't make Pan Am and World Champions, the competition writing these "reviews" don't either, but Gene Simco does. I have been a member of NYMAG for over 10 years and have seen him work with, roll with and train with multiple black belts and witnessed him getting his black belt in person. The comments posted are simply gossip and rumor put together as part of a smear campaign.

Gene Simko - Gene Simco/ Nymag is not a real black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Poughkeepsie, New York 7 comments
Not resolved

He comes across as knowledgable to the average layman.I encourage all to do their research into this fraud.

He has had numerous affiliations that have been determined to be bogus or untrue. He is the laughing stock of the BJJ comunity. Some notable traits are: not rolling(sparring) w/ students,

self promotion (to brown belt 3 x by,marco alvan,Relson Gracie (over the phone?), and then michal jen) the first 2 were determined to be bogus, he then went from a no stripe brown to a black belt by Marcelo "Nigue" Sandes whom he hadn't even seen for years. He is what we call a belt shopper.

Most of his credentials are from organizations that he heads up or that don't know any better. What most people don't know is that the military self defense courses are just the basics of real Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu.

He exploits lack of this knowledge.So if someone is a marine and says he is "a great teacher", the general public assumes the Marine is credible because they don't know that anyone w/ 1-2 yrs in BJJ could teach the same things.

Review about: Martial Arts.

To believe the accusations about him without proper evidence is just as naive as believing he is innocent. Get to know the guy before you try and tarnish his reputation. Get all the facts before you run your ignorant mouths.

"what do ya know...another 1st place award won by a NYMAG member in the recent NAGA tournament.

Lets add it to the rest of the gold medals hanging on the wall."

Congratulations to the competitor, but gold medals hanging on Simco's wall do not wash away the sins of his past.

Instead, they serve as a stain to anyone that would compete under him and defend him without knowing the truth.Apparently, ignorance is bliss...

Any informed consumer should do their research before they put their trust in an instructor. The numerous forum threads over years and years questioning his promotion lineage, drawing attention to his marketing lies, his shady business practices, and most recently his arrest and conviction involving endangering the welfare of a minor should all be enough to create pause and a desire for more information.

Simco has conveniently run away from his past and sheltered himself and his students from the rest of the grappling community to salvage his reputation. To believe that professional jealousy is the culprit is extremely naive considering the vastness of the alleged conspiracy against him.

He is hanging his hat on the many talented athletes over the years that would have flourished if they trained in their own basement. Understand that for all his students' competitive medals, he knows nothing about jiujitsu as a competitive sport. He doesn't go to tournaments to coach or spectate, he doesn't understand the rules, and he was a winless competitor the few times he actually competed himself. The credit should go to his students for being successful despite his inability to properly prepare and coach them.

To any existing student that wishes to defend him, stop drinking the koolaid and find out for yourself what everybody is saying and you will do yourself and your jiujitsu a world of good.
