THE LEGEND SERGIO PENHA AND MPR

Sergio Penha It’s an absolute honor to announce that MPR’s Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program is now in the framework of the Legendary Sergio Penha. Sergio Penha is one of the few Coral Belts in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and a Black Belt in Judo. He is one of only a handful of martial artists in the world to jump from Purple to Black Belt. Master Sergio currently trains some of the worlds most elite fighters and martial artists at his academy in Las Vegas. He is a great man and teacher and we’re honored to be part of his outstanding lineage. In addition we’ve gained many new great brothers and sisters such as our new friends at Bowie MMA.
