image002.jpgAs a full-time BJJ competitor, Marcos “Yemaso” Alejandro Pagliere-Torregrosa is currently ranked #1 in the IBJJF Master’s black belt division.

Originally from Puerto Rico, Yemaso has made a name for himself in the grappling world by dominating his division in almost every IBJJF tournament he has competed in 2013; including the San Francisco Open, the Chicago Open, the Pan-Ams, the New York Open, and the Las Vegas Open.

In 2009, Yemaso realized one of his biggest professional dreams and founded ‘Yemaso BJJ’. Since its founding, Yamaso has successfully developed and taught a style of “aggressively graceful” Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that is uniquely designed for success at competitions.


Under Yemaso’s inspirational leadership and unmatched ability to develop winning game plans for himself and his students, Team Yemaso has amassed countless individual and team titles. In February 2013, Team Yemaso made history by becoming the first team in the greater Sacramento, CA area to win a coveted IBJJF team title; an exceptionally impressive feat for a small team of only four years.

Yemaso is not only an elite competitor. He is also an inspirational leader and father who values honesty, integrity, dedication, and personal responsibility; both on and off the mats. No matter their age or rank, Yemaso sees potential in all of his students, and believes that they all deserve an equal amount of respect and attention. This fact is illustrated by his relentless dedication to perfection in his performance, and that of his students.
