Father of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Canada – Marcus Soares Visits Evolution Martial Arts & Fitness Centre in Cornwall Ontario

marcus soares cornwall actionCFN – Marcus Soares is described as the Father of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Canada.    The Champion visited Cornwall Sunday at Evolution Martial Arts & Fitness Centre  where he got to share some of his experience and wisdom with a full house of attendees.

There was a keen proud sense of humility and learning as he shared that he always is learning new techniques himself.

While not everyone attending will ever be an Eighth degree black belt,  the Rio de Janeiro native has  come a long way from his start in Vancouver over 15 years ago.

For more information about Mr. Soares or Evolution Martial Arts & Fitness centre visit  their Facebook page or drop by the facility at 425 Fourth Street West in Cornwall Ontario.

  1. The last time I fought a martial artist, it was a recent graduate of RCMP school. After he sucker punched me I kicked him in the nuts, beat him into the floor, and finished off by breaking chairs on his head. { MODERATED BECAUSE THE POSTER MAY BE RIPPED 🙂 }.
