The very first two-time absolute world champion of Jiu-Jitsu, Amaury Bitetti has served as trainer to a number of big names in world MMA in the past, among them the Nogueira brothers Rodrigo Minotauro and Rogério Minotouro. After a two-year stint working only in event promotion, the black belt has now returned to the coaching fray, alongside also-black belt Marcelo Nigue in the city of Santos, Brazil, together working with Bitetti Team Memorial Arena.

“I received this offer from Memorial and invited Nigue. We did seminars together in New York and he’s already doing a great job in Santos. I’m still promoting Bitetti Combat, though, and soon we’ll have some good news,” he comments.

Bitetti’s partner in Santos Marcelo Nigue addresses the subject of the new team:

“We’re going to compete in everything: Jiu-Jitsu, submission wrestling and MMA. We already have fifteen professional athletes and we’re going after new talent. I’ve represented Master Royler Gracie for some time, but Gracie Humaitá has been totally revamped and I wouldn’t be able to use the name “Memorial” anymore, which is who is backs me in Santos. I made the most of Amaury’s invitation and we’re going to put everything we have into this new MMA team,” he explains.

    It was an honor to train with Marcelo and Amuary. They are some of the best out there. I am also excited about the future of New York Martial Arts Gym and its affiliation with Marcelo and Amuary. Look forward to some more awesome training with these guys!

    What a great event at NYMAG in upstate Ny. I am only a white belt but in my short BJJ career this was the pinnacle of it. I also was able to have a private lesson with master Nigue that was invaluable to my learning the art of jiu-Jitsu. The way they were able to break down techniques was amazing. To have men that undersand were a white belts issues are and guide him or her in the right direction is priceless, better yet to have them in my backyard is even better. I commend Gene Simco, Marcelo Nigue and Master Bitetti for a great and inspiring seminar.

    This seminar with Bitetti and Nigue was absolutely fantastic. The amount i learned in two days of training with these guys at New York Martial Arts Gym in Wappingers Falls will stay with me for along time. It was an honor to train with such legends of the sport and seeing the high level of skill on display. The translators were spot on and it was great to see their new affiliation with my instructor Gene Simco.

    I want to thank Gene Simco for making this Brizilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA seminar happen, at NYMAG (New York Martial Arts Gym). This was an amazing experience and I learned so much. It was great to see world champions in person. I really respect and appreciate all that Amaury Bitetti and Marcelo Nigue did for our gym. Can’t wait for more seminars in the future.

    I was fortunate to be one of the recent attendees at the seminar hosted by Gene Simco at NYMAG. It was during this I was also fortunate to be able to work with both Amaury Bitetti and Marcelo Nique. I have been training in Martial Arts for many years but it is still always humbling to come across such talent. Both men were easily approachable and fielded any questions thrown their way. When words did not suffice a hands on demonstration helped to seal the deal in more ways than one. I will be looking forward to their next visit.

    Only at NYMAG would I have been able to attend a seminar as awesome as this. Nigue and Bitetti are world class and it was an amazing experience to train under the same roof as them. I look forward to what the future holds at the hudson valleys best martial arts gym, NYMAG! Congrats and special thanks to Gene Simco for making this possible!

    Many thanks to Gene Simco and his wife, Heather, Of NYMAG, for hosting a two day seminar with Amaury Bitetti and Marcelo Nigue. It was truly an honor to work with them both. It was also a privelege to be there when Gene was presented with his new Black Belt certificate, signed by Carlos Robson Gracie, (Renzo’s Father) from the Federation of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, founded by Helio Gracie. Congrats also to NYMAG for the affiliation with Bitetti Combat. Mestres Bitetti and Nigue were also two of the most down to Earth guys to be around, which made the weekend all the better!

    These guys are awesome. So glad they came to NYMAG MMA gym to do a seminar. Marcelo Nique, who’s is the teacher of Gene Simco, head instructor and owner of NYMAG pictured above to the left of Bettiti, is a great Jujitsuan. I’m glad training at NYMAG gives me the opportunity to train with some top notch instruction. Great article.

    It was an excellent weekend learning from not one but three great guys with extensive experience. This was a phenomenal opportunity to improve my jiu-jitsu game. All three guys put together under one roof. Wow! Nigue/Amaury thanks for coming to NYMAG. Hope to see you guys again. Gene, thanks for putting this together. It was exceptional training with Gene, Nigue and Amaury.
