Marcos is the head of the Grace Barra in southern Brazil and is a senior instructor with Carlos Gracie as well as being one of the top directors of the world organisation.

Thiago Ferriera, Marco’s representative in the UK and BBJ instructor at The Fight Academy, said: “Master Marcos is coming for two weeks later this month and will be holding a series of mini-seminars at The Fight Academy every night.

“He will also be conducting gradings in the system at The Fight Academy for members of DFM Martial Arts.

“The mini-seminars are open to anyone regardless of style, system or association.

“The seminars will be three hours long and will teach submissions, transitions and other aspects of the ground game.

“Marcos Schubert has extensive knowledge having been a top student with Carlos Gracie since he was a child. He is also a three times world champion at BJJ.

“This is a great chance to learn from a true master of this fighting system. As well as being a third Dan in BJJ Marcos also is a black belt in Judo.”
