Mestre Marcus “Maximus” Aurelio

Master Marcus is a 5th degree Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Black Belt, as well as mixed martial artist. A former UFC Champion, Master Marcus has also won PRIDE Bushido (an illustrious MMA tournament in Japan, where he won against the then undefeated Lightweight Takanori Gomi). He is best known for having never been submitted in an MMA competition, as well as performing one of the fastest submissions in current UFC history (13.8 seconds).  He signed with the UFC in 2008, and has been a two-time Pan American Champion, Brazilian Champion, and World Champion fighter. Having practiced the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu for thirty-six years and counting, Master Marcus is a formidable opponent, and an even better teacher.

At the heart of my teaching, I hope to convey peace and efficiency in energy utilization for maximal self defense …
