Closing 2016: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Team

“The numbers never lie and there are no substitutes for hard work”

These are the words from Bruninho Barbosa, Monarchy MMA’s third degree Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black belt and Head Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor.

Hailing from Team Buda in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Bruninho migrated to Malaysia to join the Monarchy MMA team. His dream and personal challenge was to establish Malaysia as a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu hub in the greater Asia region. His goal was not only traditional Gi BJJ but also No-Gi submission BJJ and MMA.
