Team Nogueira Dubai to host top grappler Marcus Almeida

Team Nogueira Dubai, the largest martial arts and sports center in the region, will host a two-day seminar with world champion Marcus Almeida “Buchecha” on March11, Gi and March 12, No Gi.

Marcus Almeida, also known as “Buchecha” (or Bochecha), is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt under Rodrigo Cavaca and a member of the Checkmat academy, being widely regarded as the greatest grappler of his generation and arguably of all time in the sport of BJJ.

His reputation is backed by his 6 IBJJF World Championship open weight titles, being the record holder of absolute gold medals at the ‘Mundial’ after breaking Roger Gracie‘s previous record back in 2016.

“We are elated to announce the two-day seminar (Gi and No Gi) that will be happening at TND with the one and only Marcus Almeida “Buchecha” – the best grappler in the world. We invite you to be part of this iconic event to grow your skills, meet the champion, and train with the best in the greatest martial arts facility in the Middle East.” Eduardo Ribeiroe, General Manager of Team Nogueira Dubai said.

Marcus’ physical abilities helped by the masterful eye of his instructor, BJJ World Champion Rodrigo Cavaca, soon turned Buchecha into one of the most feared athletes in the lower belt divisions, and after successive wins in the “Brasileiro,” Pan American, Sao Paulo Cup, Scandinavian Open and “Mundial”, Almeida received his black belt (while on the podium after his win at the World Championship in 2010), not long after his father was also awarded his black belt in BJJ.
