Demian Maia is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu world champion, and currently a top welterweight in the UFC. Many consider Demian to be the best BJJ practitioner in MMA. Demian is proving what it means to be a jiu jitsu fighter in MMA. He is a true martial artist. Demian states that, “Jiu-jitsu gives people an option to tap or submit. The intention is not to hurt or punish the opponent. They are given a choice to stop that. That’s what I try and do in my fights. I try and represent jiu-jitsu to the best of my ability and to show the philosophy of the art. I don’t like to hurt people.” Mark (our head instructor) is Demian's first non-Brazilian black belt. Mark has been training with Demian as his coach since 2006, in Brazil and the US. Mark and all of our instructors share Demian's philosophies and training style.
