Your Inner Champion At Cobrinha Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu!

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) has been proven, when used properly, to be an effective method for dealing with bigger and stronger opponents and has become increasingly popular due in part to its great success and popularity in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA). A student can train in BJJ for self-defense, sport jiu-jitsu (and submission grappling) and mixed martial arts competition. It has found its way into the training regimen of nearly every successful martial artist worldwide. At our academy, you will find:

  • A Fundamental Program personalized specifically for you.

  • A safe and friendly training environment.

  • A variety of classes available all day for all levels.

  • The opportunity to learn from a world famous martial artist!

  • World Class Instruction and supervision in our kid's program.

Learn from average amateur instructors with no real experience in the field. World Class Instruction under the direction of globally recognized Jiu-Jitsu champion, Rubens ‘Cobrinha’ Charles.
Spend hours learning forms and techniques that have no practicality in fighting or competition. Learn the system of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that made ‘Cobrinha’ a Multiple World Champion!
No structured ranking system or detailed curriculum according to level of experience. Traditional, organized ranking system providing a specialized curriculum for all levels.
Old and worn mats and equipment that are rarely cleaned or disinfected. Brand new mats and equipment that are cleaned and sanitized multiple times a day.
Train and spar with low ranked students who offer misguided advice. Spar with beginners and advanced alike. Our students range from White belts looking to get in shape to Black Belt World Champion Competitors.

Staying Curious~There Is Always Something New To Learn / Seja Curioso~Sempre Tem Alguma Coisa Nova Para Aprender

We are often reminded through Jiu Jitsu that there is always something new to learn. That no matter how good you already are there is always room for improvement. That you should try to improve each day even if it’s just a little bit, but how well are we implementing this philosophy to our lives off the mat? Of course we are always eager to learn new things as students of Jiu Jitsu, but how eager are we to learn new things as students of...
