ZANESVILLE, Ohio—Karl Saunders, M.D., F.A.C.S., president of Saunix Jiu Jitsu and
Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville, will host the second Magno Gama Ohio Seminar featuring traditional Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructed by world-renowned fighter and black belt professor, Magno Gama at the Renzo Gracie Academy in New York City.
Assisting Gama are purple belts Marwin Roque, an experienced mixed marital arts (MMA) fighter, and Dr. Saunders as his Brazilian martial arts name “Brad Saunders.”
The Magno Gama Ohio Seminar is from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, April 16 on the second floor of Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville’s facility, located at 2854 Bell Street.

“Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial arts combat sport originally derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the 20th century,” Dr. Saunders said. “Martial arts training in general can be a life pursuit that has many mental and physical benefits.”
Training in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu includes technique drills, isolation sparring and full sparring when both partners use legal techniques to submit their opponent.
Similar to karate, students of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu are awarded different colored belts to signify the increasing levels of technical knowledge and practical skill.
Both Magno Gama and Marwin Roque are available for private training sessions from 1 to 6 p.m. on Saturday, April 16 and from 10 a.m. to noon on Sunday, April 17.
For more information about the private sessions, costs and to reserve a spot, contact Dr. Saunders at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Magno Gama Seminar is sponsored by Saunix Jiu Jitsu and Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville and is co-sponsored by Jeff Hardwick of Coszack’s Karate, Jason Revenaugh of the Dynais Dojo, Ed Shaffer of Kachido Aiki Jitsu and Dale Huston of Martial Arts School of Ki.
