Our Instructor

Roy Marsh is one of the very few Tested Black Belts in the world under the Legendary UFC Hall-of-Famer, Royce Gracie - the man responsible for introducing the world to Gracie Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.

As one of the most sought after and respected Jiu-Jitsu instructors and top practitioners in the Carolinas, Roy is known for his exceptional technical insight and ability to convey that knowledge. Because of this, he has given seminars internationally and is highly sought after for private lessons.

It has always been Mr. Marsh's dream to move to Germany, and after building a very successful school in the U.S., he has decided to follow his dream and settle in Muenster.

Roy was awarded his Black Belt after passing a grueling test by Royce, Pedro Valente Sr. (Red Belt) and a large panel of Black Belts. Proving his knowledge and proficiency in all aspects of the art, he was given permission to teach in accordance with the standards and mission set by Grandmaster Helio.
