San Anselmo, CA, October 11, 2013 --(PR.com)-- Marin MMA’s is excited to announce it’s first International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation World Champions.

They worked hard and deserve the titles they won.” The two students are blue belt master medium-heavy weight Wojtek Bak, who submitted three of his four opponents, and purple belt senior 3 light-feather weight Peter Fugazzotto.

Either way, it’s still good hustle out of Egidi ...
