Mark Sausser, 2nd Degree Black Belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

A lifelong competitor, Mark started training in the art of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu (BJJ) in 2002. He was intrigued by the dominance of BJJ in combat sports. BJJ also gave him the opportunity to compete without the heavy abuse to his body. Gustavo recognized his dedication to the sport and talent for teaching and allowed Mark to coach classes at the main academy. As Mark progressed and earned his senior belts, Gustavo gave his blessing for Mark to open an affiliate academy in Norfolk.
