Who is Professor Marco Costa?

Professor Costa moved from Portugal to Canada when he was 13 years old.  Always fascinated with martial arts, it wasn’t until he was 17 that he enrolled in a Tae Kwon Do school in the Toronto area.  Along with studying TKD, he also trained Thai Kickboxing and several other martial arts.  When he saw Royce Gracie win UFC 1 in 1993 he was captivated by the Brazilian’s fighting style and began researching Brazilian Jiu Jitsu to learn as much as he could about it.  But it wasn’t until 1998 when he started training with Professor Franco and Master Behring of the Franco Behring Association that he knew he had found his calling.  Now, after 18 years of training, he has realized a dream; he is a Second Degree Black Belt in TKD as well as a First Degree Black Belt in BJJ under the Franco Behring Flag.  From 1993 to 2007 he won many provincial and national titles in many different disciplines including BJJ, kickboxing and mixed martial arts competition.  His focus has now changed from competitor to teacher.  With his vast knowledge of martial arts and competition, along with his ability to pass along information, he has been appointed the new Head Coach of Competition for Team Franco Behring.
