Whereas BJJ fanatics everywhere recognize Professor Cobrinha as one of the most renowned BJJ competitors in the world, we have had the opportunity to also get to know him as the instructor of our son’s classes. From the very beginning, Professor Cobrinha and his team (Professor Fabbio, Coach Kennedy, et al.) have demonstrated their personal commitment to the development of every single one of their students regardless of age or belt level, and regardless of whether they are recreational or competitive athletes. They have created a culture in the academy where students and coaches show humility and mutual respect for one another without exception. The environment is a perfect blend of intense training and fun. It is always thrilling to watch the kids develop new skills, make improvements in their agility and coordination, and train so ardently without sacrificing the camaraderie and care they have for one another. We commute 1.5 hours each way to get to class simply because we feel that this is the best place for our child to receive training of this level. Professor Cobrinha and his team are more than coaches — they are role models who share in all the children’s successes and difficulties.Maxim

My 11-year-old daughter’s life has been revolutionized by training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Cobrinha’s. While enjoying the friendship and fun with the other kids on the mats, she has learned lessons in the benefits of hard-work, preparation, and excellence from the top-notch teachers. She feels like she is getting the best-possible instruction and that gives her the confidence to perform her best at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitions. Training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu at Cobrinha’s may be the best thing that has ever happened to my little girl.

“I started training BJJ with Cobrinha in 2012 when I was 16 years old. At that time I did not really know that much about BJJ, and was an average athlete. After I moved to Los Angeles and started training with Cobrinha my athleticism and flexibility has gone through the roof! Combining BJJ training with Cobrinha’s workout program, after only four months of training I won the Pan Ams in 2013 in the Juvenile division. I also went on to win the 2013 World Championship in the Juvenile Division. After I received my blue belt I repeated the same results in 2014. Recently I moved up to the Adult Division and with the Cobrinha training program I was the Grand Slam Champion in my weight division at blue belt in 2015. I was also the Las Vegas Open Champion in 2015 as a blue belt, and the the 2015 No-Gi blue belt champion. After receiving my purple belt I recently won the Europeans Championship in my weight division. There is no doubt that none of this would have been possible without working hard at the Cobrinha workout system. I feel that if I can accomplish this after only starting training in 2012 then anyone can greatly benefit from this great program.” – Kennedy Maciel

“Since I started training with Cobrinha my results have been fantastic. Through his unique training methods and emphasis on body movement and mobility I have seen my flexibility increase and I feel my explosiveness and athleticism now is at the same level or even better than it was in my earlier fight career. I have also come to understand the importance of being able to completely control my body and the importance of concentrating on movement exercises, not just traditional strength and conditioning exercises. Not to mention that I am now in incredible fight shape!” -Fabricio Werdum

“Once I started training at Cobrinha BJJ, I feel as though I’ve transformed from a competitive blue belt to someone who is training to be a world champion. My overall fitness level has improved a ton, but my confidence is also higher than it’s ever been. Training at Cobrinha BJJ is special because his style is unique. What he teaches us isn’t simple. Cobrinha’s teaching is all in the details and I think that’s what sets Cobrinha BJJ apart from the others.
I feel like my change since I’ve begun training can be seen in everything I do. I’m a friendlier, more confident, pleasant person.”


“There are so many benefits to training at Cobrinha’s that I can’t even begin to name them all. I’m a better fighter and my physical fitness has greatly improved. I feel stronger than I ever have, but more importantly, now that I train with Cobrinha, his advice is applied to my outside life as well and has made me a better, happier person. Could you ask for anything more?”

If you want the real jiu-jitsu you have to train here. Cobrinha’s teaching will bring your jiu-jitsu to the next level. The structure and organization of the classes are impossible to duplicate. I came to Cobrinhas for a specific reason and got exactly what I wanted. I knew there was something missing something in my jiu-jitsu and I found the answer here!
