Tampa Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

I’m Professor Marcio Cruz, head instructor of Marcio Cruz BJJ – Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I wanted to thank you for looking at our website and reading our testimonials. Now, I would like to ask you for couple more minutes to show my credentials and the reasons why I think our school can be the perfect choice for YOU. I am a Black Belt under Master Carlos Gracie Jr., the founder of Gracie Barra and I have been training Jiu-Jitsu since I was 11 years old. During this time I have traveled the world competing as a professional athlete, acquiring a lot of experience on training methods for both beginners and advanced students. This experience has empowered me with teaching systems that can guide anybody without any experience to their final goal….The Black belt. I’m fully committed to give to my students the amazing experience of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that I enjoyed through out my life.
