Nova Gyms and Marc Laimon Join Hands with the Movement Center Pewaukee

The Movement Center Pewaukee and Nova Gyms Bring You an Opportunity to Learn from a legend of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu


Nova Gyms Martial Arts & Fitness are proud to announce a collaboration with The Movement Center Pewaukee to bring a series of Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu training classes exclusively for the residents of the Lake Country area.

Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu are specialized training techniques designed to inspire confidence in individuals – women and children especially. Focusing equally on the principles of self-defense and fitness, these classes will allow participants to lose weight, get in shape, and become more self-reliant. 

This collaboration is the joint effort of The Movement Center owner Ronda Arndorfer, and Chris Martin, partner extraordinaire of Nova Gyms, both of whom are very progressive health and fitness practitioners dedicated to bringing a positive change within the community.

The center of this collaboration though is Marc Laimon, a legendary grappling coach who has taught the likes of Oleg Tatakrov, Frank Mir, Chuck Liddell, and Shane Roller. Marc Laimon has also featured on the acclaimed reality show The Ultimate Fighter and is also the founder of the Cobra Kai BJJ Academy. 

Having been a pro UFC coach and trainer for the better part of the past few decades, Marc Laimon has come back to his roots in Pewaukee, ready to empower the local community by helping them train and learn the art of real self-defense via Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

From January 2018 onwards, residents of Pewaukee, Wisconsin, and Lake Country area can look forward to enrolling and attending specialist BJJ and mixed martial arts classes. Additionally, various wellness and fitness events and workshops, including Barre, Yoga, and Pilates will be held at The Movement Center.

The idea is to enable the locals to feel stronger, resilient, and more confident in their abilities and lifestyles through the various wellness techniques taught and practiced in this joint venture. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not your conventional martial arts practice. Rather it’s a specialist lifestyle sport that allows people to shed off the excess baggage they carry – mental and physical. It helps blow off the stress and get physically fitter at the same time – it’s not just about losing weight, it’s about leading a happier, healthier lifestyle.  And who better to learn this sport from a legend himself.  

This new partnership is the fruits of Ronda, Chris, and Marc’s combined efforts, only for the betterment of the community they consider home and they can’t wait to get started!
