A look inside Brazilian Top Team – Texas

“I don’t want you to just train at Brazilian Top Team, I want you to be a part of Brazilian Top Team”

Over the next few months I will try and provide an overall picture of the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts gyms in San Antonio and Austin, Texas.

I will start with Brazilian Top Team – Texas, located in San Antonio. Brazilian Top Team – Texas is owned and operated by Professor Marcello Salazar Bergo. Marcello is a Third Degree Black Belt under Murilo Bustamante, a Fifth Degree Black Belt under the renowned Carlson Gracie. Professor Bustamante is also one of the founders of Brazilian Top Team.

It was not hard to research Marcello due to his volumes of videos on the web and titles in wrestling, grappling, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ).  Sherdog  has Marcello listed as 8-1(6 victories by submission) as a professional MMA fighter.

I was able to sit down with Marcello after he finished teaching a BJJ class this past Tuesday night and here is what he had to stay;

Nomad: Please tell me about yourself?
Marcello: I was born in Rio de Janeiro on 27 March 1981. I am married to Larissa Gruenzner and have two children, Katarina Bergo and Olav Bergo.

Nomad: When did you first start training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Marcello: I started training BJJ and Judo at the age of eight, under Coach Juarez Soares, he only teaches kids classes. I stopped training for a few years then when I was fifteen I began training again…

Nomad: What was it like to training under the legendary Carlson Gracie?
Marcello: Carlson made the difference! We never knew what to expect when he would taught. I didn’t have the opportunity to train with him longer because he moved to USA. I remember him as a legend and the father of everything, he made the best fighters of the history and each one who trained with him still carrying part of his BJJ Style. Once Carlson moved to the United States and I began training under Murilo Bustamante and Mario Sperry. My BJJ philosophy still the same: You don’t just train at Brazilian Top Team – Texas… You are a part of Brazilian Top Team – Texas!

Nomad: Please tell me about your training under the Murilo Bustamante?
Marcello: Bustamante is a great leader to the team. He made history competing MMA and BJJ, his career was very successful. It is a honor to have him as my professor and friend.

Nomad: When did you receive your Black belt?
Marcello: I received by Black belt at the age of 24.

Nomad: How did you get the nick name “Barbarian”?
Marcello: They started call me the “Barbarian” because I always had the same song to fight: The Anvil of Crom.

Nomad: When did you come to the United States?
Marcello: About five years ago I signed with the extinct IFL to fight in USA. Also, I was invited to come to the United States to teach two UFC fighters, Mike Pierce and Rick Story. During that time I began exploring the idea to stay and open a new BTT school in California with my friend Marcelo Perdomo, however; ended up with the opportunity to own BTT – Texas and I took it, this was largely due to Bill Bradley.

Nomad: Tell me about your gym?
Marcello: BTT – Texas is a 9000 square foot training facility. We have 2,500 square foot of mat space, full MMA cage, weight training area, striking area, and lockers and showers. My wife, Larissa; is the manager, Nancy Martinez is our conditioning trainer, Richard Smith is our striking coach, Sam Hudson is our kids BJJ instructor and I am the head BJJ instructor. Also, I have few high rank students who help me with the classes.

Nomad: Do you have any black belts under you?
Marcello: Yes, I have two. Bill Bradley, owner of BTT – Portland and Christofer Easter who serves in the United States Armed Forces.

Nomad: What is your teaching philosophy?
Marcello: My philosophy is teach the BJJ Life Style, that means use the sport to increase the life quality. I have been sharing my experiences with my students, on the mat I learned more about myself and how interact as a human being.

On the mat I learned: how be tough, have discipline, care about my nutrition, work as a team and help teammates… Doing BJJ I have been making friends since I was a little kid: poor friends, rich, famous, anonymous… On the mat we are all equal and with different talents!
The loyalty is the key of our success, the result of one is the result of all because we all carry the same flag. I am proud to be part of this team and I can see that all the guys feel the same.

Nomad: Who is mostly responsible for your success in BJJ and MMA?
Marcello: For sure, it’s the people who I have around me since I started. My professor taught me BJJ not only to fight in IBJJF tournaments, because the Federation didn’t exist when I started, it was before the first world championship. We trained BJJ without rules as a self-defense, what made BJJ popular after defeat other styles of fight. That old school style is effective to fight, since I started I have been competing with success in: BJJ, Grappling, Wrestling, Sambo, and MMA. Our philosophy is always be open to innovate, adapt and create techniques. I get ready to fight by training with my students.

Nomad: You recently had two other Black Belts, Eduardo Ramos and Vinicius Gahyva, visiting your school, please tell us about them.
Marcello: They’re two great guys, Eduardo is a heavyweight who likes to play guard, Vinicius is a lightweight who likes to play on the top. I know them for more than 10 years and it is good to have the opportunity to bring them over here to train with the team.
I always have some black belts who come to visit our school, usually friends of mine from Rio de Janeiro. Also, I have two black belts under me in BTT-Texas and sometimes the guys from BTT-Plano come from Dallas to do cross-training.

Nomad: Do you plan on competing again?
Marcello: Oh yeah. I plan to never stop competing!
I like to feel the adrenaline of the challenged… The pain of the loss and the glory of the victory working together to make me a better fighter.

Nomad: What’s is on the horizon for BTT – Texas?
Marcello: We are in the process of opening a new BTT in Corpus Christi. The gym will be ran by my long time friend, Robert Moreira, a Fifth Degree BJJ Black Belt.

Nomad: How would you describe BTT – Texas?
Marcello: I don’t want BTT – Texas to just be a BJJ gym where we only open the doors for our classes. I want us to be more like a club, where the doors are always open and if you want to train then you just come. I want this gym to be much like the gym I was raised up in while in Brazil. A place to come and meet friends, grow as a person, learn Jiu Jitsu, share stories, and have fun.

Nomad: Do you have any last words for our readers?
Marcello: BTT – Texas wants to provide an environment where people of any background, experience and fitness level can learn and train in mixed martial arts, the core being Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi and Nogi, Wrestling, Muay Thai and Boxing.

BTT – Texas will have five Amateur MMA fighters on the Alamo Showdown 4 card this August 31, 2012. Christopher Frazier, Caleb Murphree, and Edward Rodriguez will be making their MMA debut. Parker Reid will be looking for his fourth win and Jewel Snell will be fighting for the ABG Featherweight Title.

5 Reasons to Add Seminars to Your MMA Training [Fighter Tips]

“5 Reasons to Add Seminars to Your MMA Training”
By Dan Corvino

Muay Thai Techniques
Courtesy of Muay Thai Techniques

As a Martial Artist I am a big advocate of Fight Seminar training. There are many reasons that attending seminars and workshops will help you quickly develop your training as a Martial Artist. You would be amazed how many instructors discourage you from attending seminars, while others will only encourage you to attend ones at your school or from your discipline. Seminar training can be beneficial to strengthen your training within your discipline as well as add new elements to your game. Here are the reasons I feel that Seminars are essential for an aspiring Mixed Martial Artist.

Community College of MMA Training

Whether or not you have ever been to community college, you will most likely understand the concept of it. Community College is a way for you to test the waters and try different classes to figure out what you like the most. It’s a smorgesh board of different curriculum options if you will. Martial Arts Seminars are the same way. In particularly, if you train in one style, you may not have the opportunity to train in different arts and see if there is something about that style that you like or could add to your development. For example, if you train at a Karate school, you may not do much boxing, or if you train at a Muay Thai school, you may do much grappling. Training in seminars will give you the opportunity to test the waters with different styles without having to make a major commitment.

Learn New Skills

Many times the instructors who are hosting the seminar are certified under the person giving the seminar. For example, if your instructor runs a Combat Submission Wrestling school, then he or she is certified under Erik Paulson. Assuming the seminar is given by Erik Paulson, he will usually use that as an opportunity to pass along more new techniques or curriculum to your instructor and his/her student body, as well as refine current techniques and skills being practiced. If you are taking the seminar at the school that train at, you will be learning the same tricks, tips and techniques as everyone else. However, if you are going outside of your school, most likely you will be bringing new techniques back to your current school or training location. You can use this as an opportunity to pass along your newfound knowledge, or surprise your friends with the techniques during sparring sessions, which is what I like to do.

Barometer

Judging how you are advancing in your training is sometimes difficult. Many times when you join up at a school, you can never really judge how good you are getting. The reason is that everyone at your school is usually continuing to advance at the same time you are. As new people come in, you recognize you are better at certain skills than they are, but you usually dismiss it at “well, they are a noobie”. Going to seminars is a good way to evaluate your skill. You can evaluate how quickly you are able to pick up new techniques and skills. Also, many times not everyone attending the seminar is from the place where you train. Because of that you see how you compare to other from different places. Seminars are one of the best ways to evaluate your skills aside from competition.

Social Networking

No I am not talking about Twitter or Facebook or Myspace or whatever other Social Networking craze takes place in the future. I am talking about real life social networking. Going to seminars is a great way to contact and meet like minded people from all over the world. I have met and made friends in places like Florida, Texas, New Jersey, Delaware, Austrailia, England and more. It’s great because as I travel, I find that I usually have a place to train at. This is even more of a reason why I suggest you don’t just look for seminars in your area, but that you expand yourself and travel to different areas for your seminar training. I have taken seminars in Connetticut, Georgia, Las Vegas and of course Thailand. Get out of your bubble and meet some new people. You will tank me later.

Rejuvenation

Many times with my training I start to hit a rut. It’s usually around that time where I decide to head out for a seminar. After a seminar or some other training excursion I usually feel completely rejuvenated and refocused on my training. Sometimes it’s as simple as having someone point out the basics and fundementals again. Other times, it’s the feeling of learning something new which inspires you to be refocused. Either way, without fail whenever I come back from a seminar or camp training I always feel reinspired about my training. If you are starting to feel that your training is becoming dull and boring, you don’t need to look for another place to train, just search out a seminar and trust me you will come back refreshed and full of life.

I hope this article inspires you to attend a seminar to further your training.

“Here I am keeping my promise” – Matt Mazurek Interview

Have been able to watch Matt Mazurek fight once in his amateur career and just like anybody in the sport, the sky is the limit with this guy. Fighting out of Austin,Texas…He comes from great camp and has a great test for himself come August 25.”BLOOD & GLORY”in Robstown,TX…for ticket info call: 361-387-9000 LETS DO THIS!!

sPidA: Bro, how long have you been waiting on making your Pro debut?

Mazurek: Making my pro debut has been a life long dream. It has been in the back of my mind for as long as I can think. It was my moms last wish before she passed,that I take fighting as far as I can take it. I remember when I first started taking martial arts at the age of 6. My mom was a brown belt in taekwondo. She was one tough momma. I looked up to her for that. Now here I am keeping my promise.

sPidA: You had a great Mixed Martial Arts amateur career and actually won a title, whose decision was it to finally go Pro?

Mazurek: Winning that title was something I felt I had to achieve before making this jump. I WILL have another title at some point. As for the jump to the pro scene, it was both my decision and a team decision. My head trainers really felt I was ready for the jump once I won the AMMA Lightweight Texas Title.

sPidA: Your opponent for your debut is an experienced fighter in Chris Pecero, are you nervous going into this

Mazurek: As for Chris Pecero, I respect him as a fighter, but when we are in that Cage, it’s on.. I’ve been in the fight game for quite some time. The way I see it, he wont hit me harder than what my team does, he wont put me through anything I have not been through. When it comes to his record, it’s just a number. All I can say is he has not been locked in a Cage with anyone like me. August 25th, he will see first hand what I’m capable of.

sPidA: You have some pretty great guys to train with @ Austin Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu, how hard do these guys push you day in and day out?

Mazurek: Man, my team is the best! I wouldn’t change it for the world.. At Austin Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu we are one BIG family.. Love those guys! We really do have some of the top fighters in Texas and the world. Training with these guys is extremely tough most of the time. They push me to the point where I feel like I’m gonna die (lol) but after it’s over, I know I’m that much better the next day.

sPidA: Are you training full-time for this, if so how often are you able to prepare for your Pro debut?

Mazurek: I was training full time for about 5 months. The fight world is crazy at times. Since March I have had 3 fights drop on me. In that time I got some great training in with some top guys. I was getting in about 6 hours a day of everything from ground to muay thai to strength and conditioning. Sunday was my only day off to relax and get some mental training and think about everything i learned through the week.

sPidA: Other than the typical muay thai and grappling, what other routines are you throwing into the mix?

Mazurek: Well, I don’t really wanna give too much about my fighting style… Just know, come August 25th there are gonna be some BIG hits going on..

sPidA: You will be competing outside your home town, will this play a factor in your Pro debut, how do you personally deal with something like this?

Mazurek: I actually love fighting out of my home City. I mean don’t get me wrong, I love fighting in Austin but when I fight outside my home town I feel more relaxed. Its weird in a way. I feel like all the pressure of having all your close friends watching and wondering what they are thinking is gone. I get to come to his home town and add fans to my book (LoL). I know I’ll get some boos in the crowed but when they see just how hard I go I’ll make believers out of them. Austin Fighters are tough and We’ll make a name in this sport..

sPidA: The sport of Mixed Martial Arts has really changed over the years, do you see any major changes in the sport in the near future?

Mazurek: I tell ya, Mixed Martial Arts has progressed so much over the years. I really don’t know where the sport will go 20 years from now, but what I can say is I don’t see it slowing down anytime soon.

sPidA: With so much talent at Austin Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu, who would you say pushes you the hardest?

Mazurek: Of all of my brothers in the gym, the one that stands out the most would have to be Tim Kennedy. He is a beast! He pushes everyone in the gym. It’s kinda a love/hate relationship LoL.. You hate being in there with him but at the same time it’s awesome because you get the chance to train one on one with one of the top 10 fighters in the world.When you’re in there with him, it’s all pressure all the time. He does not let off until you hear that buzzer. It’s great though. I know training with him will make me that much better.

sPidA: SCENARIO: You get attacked one day while leaving the gym, who would you rather come help you: Steven Segal , Joe Rogan or Ed Oneil (Al Bundy) and why?

Mazurek: LOL, well I’m gonna have to go with my boy Steven Segal. He can kill people just by looking at them LoL. I saw a video of him where he had 14 guys attack him at once and he kicked all of their butts like it was nothing. So, if I was in the situation where I needed help, he would be the one I’d call.

sPidA: Thank you much for taking time for this bro, I was granted Cage Side access for this one (unlike many out there) So I will see you there come August 25th, any last-minute words?

Mazurek:Hey, thank you brotha. I just wanna say that this fight is for my momma. I know she’s gonna be in there with me. Also my coaches,my girl and my sponsors (Thank you)… everyone that loves Mixed Martial Arts, spread the word on TexasFighting.com and help support your Texas fighters.

“What keeps me motivated is becoming the best…” Randy Villarreal Interview

Randy Villarreal - 125 lbs Prospect

Probably one of the most active Mixed Martial Arts fighters at both 125-135 weight class division. A few words with someone I personally know and whose career I have always followed. Bound STFC come Friday July 13th, a few words with Randy Villarreal.

sPidA: What first attracted you to Mixed Martial Arts?

Villarreal: When living in San Antonio my brother used to bring UFC DVD’s to my apt, that got us looking for a place to train and we found your class. (Yes our very own sPidA was my first Jiu-Jitsu Instructor)

sPidA: You’ve competed a lot in both your amateur MMA career as well as your Pro career now, what keeps you motivated?

Villareal: I have had over 25 fights in 5 years, what keeps me motivated is becoming the best in the 125lb weight division and be World Champion. Then I’ll be satisfied!!

sPidA: You have fought some of the best talent in both the 125-135lb weight division, if you could host a Flyweight Tournament and add 3 others (including yourself) who would they be and why?

Villareal: If we’re talking 25ers not in the ufc for a flyweight tourney it would def be Will Campuzano (cause thats the one 125lb fight I want more than any else and I feel he doesnt wanna fight me) Jimmy Flick (so I can avenge my loss to him) and either Jason Sampson or Nick Mamalis (so I can avenge those losses as well, since I was winning both those fights.)

sPidA: People always ask me “when is the best time for a fighter to start competing?” Your thoughts?

Villarreal: I would say, the time frame for an MMA fighter to start competing would depend on the individual and the amount of time he put into his training, both physically and mentally. With that said, realistically anywhere from 8 months to a year of solid full time training and the right Coaching.

sPidA: With fights getting harder and harder to find here in Texas, are you looking to compete outside the State this year?

Villareal: I wouldn’t mind fighting outside the State (as I have before) but it all depends on the pay and a fight with ANYONE at 125lbs.

sPidA: Thank you bro for making time for this, as always we wish you the best,anything else to end this Interview?

Villarreal: Id like to thank my coaches Durwyn Lamb,  Tony Tipton,  Albert Hughes, Coach Javad and Coach Sina for all the work they put into me for my fight this Friday the 13th. Midnight Activity Music for being there for me since my amateur days. I’d also like to thank you Spida for all the continued work you do for ALL the fighters and last but not least I’d like to thank all my fans and supporters. I love you all!!!

“If you want to be the best, you have to fight the best!” Amber Stautzenberger Interview

Fighting out of Mohler’s Mixed Martial Arts in Coppel, Texas… Amber Stautzenberger prepares to take the Tiny Tornado for a spin of her own come Monday July 16th, for the American Battle Championship # 11 in West Palm Beach, Florida (115 Title and #1 World Women Ranking on the line). Wishing her the best…I present to you, Amber Stautzenberger!

sPidA: You had started your Mixed Martial Arts career in Missouri, after your first bout, did you know this was something you wanted to pursue?

Amber: Yes, I knew I wanted to keep pursuing a career in Mixed Martial Arts but I didn’t know where it would take me. My main priority at that time was school.

sPidA: You have 6 bouts in Amateur Mixed Martial Arts competition, after this fight, will you possibly be going Pro?

Amber: I have been trying to go Pro at 115lbs since the end of last year but haven’t been able to get a fight. Hopefully this fight in August will come through.

sPidA: Not many women competing in Mixed Martial Arts here in Texas (at least not within the same weight division) Is this the reason why you are traveling to Florida for your upcoming bout?

Amber: It is one of the reasons, Jordan Gaza the other 115lb fighter here in Texas wont fight me. It would make for a great bout. The other women at 115lbs are just starting out.Tecia my Florida opponent is skilled and 6-0 in MMA, That’s why I took the Title fight. She has over 15 fights totaled including her kickboxing matches. I figured it would be great to fight someone with a lot of experience especially since I will be going Pro soon. If you want to be the best,you have to fight the best!

sPidA: This next bout you will be going against what many consider to be the best 115lb MMA female fighter in the World. What tools do you feel you will bring into this bout to challenge her?

Amber: My height and my reach are great tools to use against her, I’m pretty well rounded as is she. It will be a great technical fight for both of us.

sPidA: Seems like many Mixed Martial Arts competitors nowadays are friends (via social networking), would this keep you from fighting someone who is a “friend” through social media?

Amber: It would not, I am friends with many women in my weight class (115lbs) If we fight,we fight. We will still respect one another. This is a sport. No grudges.

sPidA: Who do your training partners consist of? Do you have any female fighters helping you prepare for this bout or like many gyms, do the guys that train there help you prepare for your fights?

Amber: I have several girls helping me such as: Amanda Fine and Jinh Yu. Both the men and women I train with have different strengths and skills so it’s great to be able to work them all. Amanda has been my main training partner for this fight but the guys have been helping me as well.

sPidA: With STRIKEFORCE closing its doors this year (they have been doing a great job pushing Womens MMA) What other organizations have you been following that have been helping the growth of Womens Mixed Martial Arts?

Amber: INVICTA is playing a big roll right now in Womens Mixed Martial Arts. Even though they are just starting out, they have some great names on their cards. Marloes Coenen , Kaitlin Young and Carla Esparza to name a few. They also help out the women that are just starting off their Pro careers like the Lybargers. I hope INVICTA continues to grow with it’s succes as well as JEWELS in JAPAN.

sPidA: You will be fighting in your opponents home State of Florida, where else have you fought other than Texas and do you get nervous fighting outside of your own home State?

Amber: I have fought in Las Vegas, Missouri, Louisiana , Arkansas and here in Texas. I feel comfortable fighting outside my home State. I have too because I don’t have many 115lb opponents here in Texas. I don’t get nervous but I do start getting the jitters the day of the weigh ins, on and off. Mostly just from being anxious from wanting to fight. Adrenaline takes over in the Cage if there is any nervousness left.

sPidA: Your walk out Tee was created to help out a great cause, can you tell us a bit about this and will the Tees be available after your fight?

Amber: Yes most of the proceeds will be going towards my 17yr old cousin, Justin Salcedo. He is going through chemotherapy Stage 4 testicular cancer. He is a fighter and will make it through, no doubt about that. These shirts will not be available after this fight but I will have others for future fights that will also be helping out a great cause.

sPidA: Most that compete in Mixed Martial Arts work as bouncers, security, trainers etc so that they have time to train, what kind of job do you have outside of the cage and does it allow you to train when needed?

Amber: The job I have right now is fantastic! I went to school for art and now I teach painting classes. It works well with my training as I can still workout multiple times a day.

sPidA: All this talk about ZOMBIES in Florida, if you were to run into one, what would be the first thing you would do?

Amber: Without a weapon, I would probably kick its head off! That seems like a safe way to go, then alert the CDC.

sPidA: I do thank you for your time Amber, TexasFighting.com and the State of Texas is behind you 100%.  Anything else you would like to add to this interview?

Amber: I would like to thank the great State of Texas and you guys at TexasFighting.com for the opportunity on getting this interview. I would like to thank my coaches and training partners for helping me get prepared for this fight. My friends and family for their support. Thank you Tristan Grimsly and Nathan Heath for working with me on my strength and conditioning. I would also like to thank my sponsors: M.King Construction Inc, CO and Michelle Holcomb, FNP-C , Inova Richardson-Family Practice and Ammunition To Go. Thank you everybody who has helped me and my cousin Justin!
