August 20, 2011 Marked a special day for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in San Antonio. 5 Years ago Professor Luiz Sergio “Marra” Corrêa came from Brazil for a seminar with his student, Bruno Azavedo and never went back. Since that time Professor Marra brought in from Brazil, 3 of the 4 Black Belts in San Antonio and has propagated the growth of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu more than any other individual.
Mr. Haben has the distinct privilege of being one of a handful of people that have trained under Professor Marra’s tutelage from the very beginning. Professor Marra’s arrival changed the landscape of Martial Arts in the San Antonio area for years to come. Congratulations and much success to Marra-Senki Competition Team!
Professor Marra is a 4th degree Black Belt under Professor Paulo Strauch, a 3 time World Champion in BJJ, a 2nd Dan Judo Black Belt and has been inducted into the Martial Arts Hall of Fame.
