Welcome to Heroes Martial Arts!
My name is Alan “Gumby” Marques and I love the grappling martial arts. I believe that the art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu has greatly enriched my life. The lessons I have learned, the people I have met, and the experiences I have had thanks to Jiu Jitsu have wildly exceeded my expectations when I first stepped on the mat and I feel blessed every day.
I have had the opportunity to travel the world in pursuit and in service of the art I love and have been afforded a great many opportunities, but always felt that my truly happiest hours have been spent on the mat. The dojo has been a more than a second home to me, and the people I’ve trained with are like family to me. There are a great many possibilities afforded to me, but what I truly enjoy most are the personal interactions within the academy.
To get you started, we’ve organized our information on getting started at Heroes Martial Arts in the menu on the left side of your screen (or below if you’re on a mobile phone). If you have questions that aren’t covered on the website or you’d just like to get more of a feel for things, please feel free to contact us either through e-mail or on the phone. I answer all correspondence personally; I like to stay connected to everyone involved with Heroes Martial Arts as much as possible!
Heroes Martial Arts has been a dream come true for me, I hope it can be the start of your dreams as well.
See you on the mat soon!
