Marin MMA’s competition team, led by head instructor Mikyo Riggs, took gold in several divisions in the Master Senior World Championships, held at the Walter Pyramid at California State University, Long Beach, 10/05-06/2013.

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. Head owner and instructor Mikyo Riggs could not be more elated: “I am extremely proud of my students. I have been training my students to be world champion for many years and it finally happened! I could not be happier with their performance. 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.

Marin MMA’s other two competitors also medaled this year.

Blue Belt Senior 2 Feather Weight Eric Smith won bronze, submitting his first opponent with an arm bar.
