I’ve been training for almost 4 years now with Marcelo. He’s a multiple world champion and great teacher on and off the mats. Great environment to train for all age groups. If you want to learn self defense or sharpen your jiu jitsu, Marcelo is the best to learn from.

Top notch instruction with a positive learning atmosphere.Its also a great place for your child to learn how to protect themselves and get some good physical exercise at the same time. Coach Marcelo and his staff are the best and their teaching skills are excellent.You couldn't ask for a better BJJ gym.

I started training with Marcelo in 1997 (Brazil) he has a lot of experience to teach REAL Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and he is a several times world champion (IBJJF) on Black Belt . Now almost 22 years in I have my first degree black belt. Coach Marcelo Pereira teaching style makes it easy to learn. I wouldn't go anywhere else to train BJJ.

I would love to address and chime in on a review written by an "anonymous" user who called himself "your mind"First off, the fact that you are anonymous speaks loudly about your character and who you are.Second off, I can speak from experience as my children are all enrolled with Marcelo and his team. His antics and professionalism are unlike anything I have ever experienced within martial arts. Having a coach who truly cares about his students is very rare, and that is exactly the type of coach Marcelo is. Being a coach requires true passion for what you do, and I can confidently say Marcelo and the ENTIRE team have a true passion and love for all of their students.It saddens me that this individual is utilizing the google platform in an attempt to stain Team Marcelo Pereira BJJ's business. Again, the anonymous review is a telling sign.Feel free to reach out to me directly if you ever have any questions about this gym. I would personally vouch for Marcelo and his team.

I have been a student of Marcelo Pereira's for almost 8 years now. I have been very fortunate to have a passionate and caring instructor who is incredibly knowledgeable about this martial art. His passion for the success of his students rivals no other instructor. He cares for the overall well being of all his students, on and off the mat. In all my time knowing my teacher I have NEVER seen the slightest ounce of disrespect directed to a student. Marcelo Pereira is an incredibly professional, experienced and educated coach/world champion. I can personally say that all of his current students are happy, excited and grateful to have such a renown fighter and teacher be apart of their journey as a martial artist. Anyone who differs so dramatically may need to look inward and self analyze that perhaps they can be the issue of such a negative experience and get over any issues that hold them back from becoming a better person and martial artist.
