About Us

Mushin is a private martial arts dojo. We emphasize feet to floor jiu jitsu. We also offer kickboxing classes for our members so they can learn how to strike. You must be a member to train in our classes. You don’t have to be a member to do private lessons.


If you would like to become a member at Mushin, you need to schedule an intro private with an instructor. During your private lesson you can discuss your objectives training at Mushin. This is also a good time to address any questions or concerns you might have. After your intro private you can partake in 3 martial arts classes of your choice. The cost of the Introduction is $300.


World-class trainers, amazing classes, and a clean facility are just a few of the qualities that make Mushin one of the best Martial Arts Gyms and Functional Fitness Facilities in New York City, but don't just take our word for it...

Erik Owings has been my friend for over five years. He is the mastermind behind the GSP Rushfit DVD system, which we did together last year. Besides the great success of that project, he is also a highly valued training partner. His skill as a fighter and instructor is top notch. If you are in New York City, you should stop by Mushin Mixed Martial Arts for a unique training experience. Erik is an encyclopedia of knowledge who can only make your technique and fitness improve. I make it a point to train with him whenever I'm in New York City

Anytime I'm in NYC, I make Mushin MMA one of the places I need to go to train. Whether I'm looking to train my MMA skills, or get in a great strength and conditioning session, Mushin truly has everything I need. The facility is beautiful and the instruction is simply top notch. I have known Professor Erik Owings for several years. He is one of the most impressive martial artists I have come across. His knowledge and experience make him a tremendous coach and I'm lucky to call him a training partner and friend
