Bad Monkey Fight Shop Announces New Team Member
Lake Forest, California
June 25, 2010—
BadMonkeyFightShop.com, an online store specializing in high quality mixed martial arts products such as MMA gear and clothing, is proud to announce the addition of new team member, 3x Jiu Jitsu World Champion, Marcel Louzado.
In recent months Bad Monkey Fight Shop has broadened its focus to offer Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) gear, including Jiu Jitsu gis from top brands such as Vulkan Fight Company. In order to mark the start of expanding their brand into the Jiu Jitsu equipment and clothing market, Bad Monkey Fight Shop co-founded a Jiu Jitsu team with Louzado becoming the inaugural team member.
Marcel Louzado is a 3x Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champion. He actively competes in the adult division—the most competitive age group, and teaches Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Lake Forest, California. He also holds victories over big names, including Damian Maia. Marcel currently competes for Team CheckMat and has previously been a member of several world-renown teams including TT and Brasa. In the past year Marcel Louzado has served as Jiu Jitsu coach to UFC fighters Mark Munoz, James Irvin and Strikeforce fighter King Mo Lawal.
"Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a huge passion of Bad Monkey Fight Shop. We are honored to have such a highly accomplished Jiu Jitsu competitor, such as Marcel Louzado, being the first member of our Jiu Jitsu team. Although we do offer merchandise for fans, such as shirts and MMA shorts, we want to make it clear that for the last half of the decade we have been serious about training. By adding serious Jiu Jitsu fighters to our team we feel we can increasingly represent our dedication and knowledge of the sport."—Head Monkey
