About Us

Laselva MMA is where the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) comes to life under the expert guidance of our founder, Marcio Laselva. As a 4th degree black belt, Marcio brings a wealth of experience and a passion for Jiu-Jitsu that has left an permanent mark on the martial arts community in Kansas.

Marcio’s journey in BJJ began under the tutelage of Master Roberto Tozi in Brazil, where he honed his skills and developed a deep appreciation for the art. In 2006, Marcio introduced Jiu-Jitsu to Kansas, and since then, he has been a driving force in the growth and development of BJJ in the region.

At Laselva Jiu-Jitsu, we take pride in the fact that every current instructor teaching BJJ in the Wichita area has received training or earned their belts under Marcio’s expert guidance. His commitment to excellence and dedication to the art have shaped a generation of skilled practitioners, each carrying forward the legacy of Laselva Jiu-Jitsu.

From 2009 to 2015, Laselva MMA proudly stood as a beacon of Jiu-Jitsu excellence in Wichita. In 2016, Laselva MMA moved to Derby, continuing our mission to provide a nurturing, challenging, and welcoming environment for practitioners of all levels.
