Marvin Lee is the head instructor at LBJJ. He is a Black belt Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) and has passionately practiced for over 10 years. During the years he has developed effective ways to compete, train safe, and stay fit.
” I understand how effective ground fighting is in a combative situation, and through practicing these grappling skills you can achieve a calm fighting awareness. I also believe Jiu Jitsu is more than a fighting art, like any form of art, it holds the power to self-discovery, mental/body development, and the rewards of hard work. ”
” There are many benefits to Jiu Jitsu such as self defense, a fun way to get fit, and most importantly the social support shared by the experience. This is why I believe Jiu Jitsu will be a great fit for Long Beach. ”
Bart Palermo is a brown belt. Bart also finds parallels between Jiu Jitsu and his former training becoming a U.S. Navy SEAL. “The blood, sweat and tears it takes to make it through training takes commitment and fortitude. Whether your goal is to get in shape, learn a discipline, learn self-defense or be a competitor, Jiu Jitsu is a life altering experience.”
Bart lives in Island park with his wife and son. He enjoys spending quality time family and friends, training Jiu Jitsu and practicing Bikram yoga.
