Owner & Head Instructor Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai & Mixed Martial Arts
Professor Marco Perazzo started training with Phil Migliarese owner of Balance Studios in April 1994 after watching how effective Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was in the Ultimate Fighting Championship UFC. He was hooked when he learned that a smaller, weaker opponent could win a fight against a bigger, stronger person.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has helped Marco lose 70 pounds and become more confident, healthy, and happy. Also, it gave him a chance to meet new and diverse friends.
He wants every student to have fun and walk out of class believing that he has taught to the best of his ability. He believes that every student should train hard so that when the moment comes, “you are ready to accept the challenge and overcome your opponent.”
