Marvin began wrestling in 6th grade and coached that sport long before discovering Jiu-Jitsu. He earned a scholarship to a Division 1 school but dropped out soon after attending in order to satisfy his curiosity about the world. When he joined up, he discovered the joy of serving his country and dedicated his life to a career in military service.
After a period of inactivity from wrestling, a 30-something Marvin found his way to Jiu-Jitsu as a way to get back into grappling. He also began to fight amateur MMA bouts, earning a record of 7-1 in the sport of mixed martial arts. Eventually he decided that submission grappling was his path forward and committed to BJJ.
In the time since, Brian Marvin has gone on to success as an academy owner under Renzo Gracie and a black belt under Renzo’s esteemed grandfather, Master Carlos Gracie Jr. In 2014, he got his first stripe, with two more to follow soon. Marvin can now be found training others in the sport that has been central to his life for well over two decades.
