My name is Paul Nickelsburg.  I started training under Marcello in 2007 because of his reputation as a teacher and a competitor.  Since then I have seen and trained at many other academies but I continue to train at Marcello’s academy because of the friendly atmosphere, technical instruction and personal attention that I receive.  As a full-time student Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu helps me to relax, stay fit, and satisfy my competitive needs in a constructive fashion.
