Template:Notability Marc Laimon is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Submission Wrestling, and Mixed martial arts trainer in the United States. Marc Laimon, a black belt under John Lewis, founded the CobraKai Jiu Jitsu Academy in Las Vegas, Nevada in 2004[1] Marc Laimon studied with the following black belts: Joe Moreira, Royce Gracie, John Lewis and many others to come up with his own unique style of bjj and produces many leading champions...Marc did receive his BJJ BB from John Lewis and at that time was a member of Nova Uniao. Having been inspired by watching Royce Gracie compete in UFC 4, he began training under Royce and Rorion Gracie, but later claimed to be unimpressed with Royce's jiu jitsu skills, stating, "I just think his (Royce's) level of Jiu Jitsu is very very low." Marc is currently coaching up and coming fighters such as Jake Rosholt, Johny Hendricks, Shane Roller, Ulysses Gomez, and Jason Carpenter.[2]

Marc Laimon also had a serious argument with Matt Serra, who trained with Gracie family for long time, during The Ultimate Fighter 4. Laimon criticized about Royce Gracie's loss against Matt Hughes and Matt Serra found that was very disrespectful and argued Laimon about "non-MMA guy" talking about "real-MMA fighter"'s fight.

Laimon holds a notable victory over Ryron Gracie. [3]
