Describe You BJJ Game: If I am on the bottom I get to the top, I play a top game that is heavy & tight and with lots of pressure and movement obtaining Control – Position – Easy Submission. I place as much pressure on my opponent as possible by getting a good position with great control and force them to make mistakes, then I take advantage of what they give me. The boys call it “Brut Jitsu”.

Marcus believes the best thing about training people is seeing them do what they never believed they could do. To see the look on their face and the excitement that they have when they achieve their goals keeps Marcus coming back for more. Marcus developed an interest for rehabilitation after working with some of Brisbane’s best physiotherapists. Marcus now has the skills to train almost any client, with almost any injury, to assist them in getting back on track and achieving their goals.
It’s better to have fought and lost, than never fought at all.
