The Cellar Welcomes BJJ Black Belt, Marcelo Nunes


We are very proud to introduce The Cellar’s newest addition to our very talented staff; BJJ Black Belt, Marcelo Nunes. Marcelo has joined The Cellar to help build our BJJ and MMA programs and he plans to get right to work by adding more classes to our schedule. Beginning July 9th, Marcelo will be teaching 9 classes per week at The Cellar!

Marcelo was born in São Paulo, Brazil and began training Jiu Jitsu at the age of 13. He is a BJJ Black Belt under World Champion Robert Drysdale and has many years of teaching experience at the Drysdale Jiu Jitsu Headquarters in Las Vegas, NV and in Guam where he was also an instructor for the U.S. Army. In 2012 Marcelo moved to Minneapolis to join The Cellar.

As an avid competitor Marcelo has won Jiu Jitsu tournaments in Brazil, U.S.A., and the Philippines. He has a very impressive competition record and one day plans to compete in MMA.
