Professor Luiz Sergio Correa – Head Instructor

Hello and welcome to the Marra Senki BJJ Academy website! My name is Professor Luiz Sergio Corrêa, from Brazil. I have been practicing Jiu-Jitsu for 29 years, 19 of which I have been a blackbelt. I received my blackbelt from Paulo Strauch, former instructor from the Reilson Gracie Academy. I am also one of the few black belts to hold a Professor diploma that is signed by Carlos Gracie Junior, Robson Gracie, Osvaldo Alves and Master Mansour. I am a former member of Brazilian Top Team and was an instructor to H.E. Sheikh Tahnoon Bin Zayed (founder of the Abu Dhabi World Championships). I have also competed in several competitions.
