Butch Marks

“The path is the most important part, and to be able to do this with your friends, to build relationships, to challenge yourself physically, mentally and progress, that’s all we really can ask in anything we do. And in my life, I’ve found the best avenue for that: jiu-jitsu.”–Butch Marks

Butch is a true martial arts student, and he began his studies at the age of 4. By the age of 7, he was on the USA Karate National Team. In 1995, he was introduced to Gracie jiu-jitsu (the Brazilian form of jiu-jitsu developed by the Gracie family), and he continues to learn new methods of the jiu-jitsu discipline even after 20+ years of experience.
