“I started training with Mountain BJJ because I had trained in BJJ before and enjoyed it. Training with Marco was so much more eye opening. It’s incredible the amount of knowledge and support he’s received from his teachers. Marco is really fun to spar/roll with. it is here that you really feel his knowledge. The best part is his desire to learn, and to teach. A great place to have some fun!”

I started Jui-Jitsu few month ago and the more I do, the more I love it. This is an addictive practice that you get to learn in a very gentle way with Marco and his wonderful wife Joanna. This beautiful art brings the values of respect, discipline and self-control. I feel lucky to be part of the team and have met such amazing people 🙂
