Trainers:

  • Fabbio Passos, aka “Monstrinho,” is a 1st degree Black Belt under Fabio Gurgel. He is an active competitor for the Alliance Jiu-Jitsu team, placing in over 50 internationally known competitions and winning Gold in over half of them. A few years after beginning his journey in Jiu-Jitsu, Passos started a social project in San Paulo, Brazil called “Meninos do Morumbi” (Morumbi Boys) where he instructed over 200 under-privileged children from the ages of 8-18yrs. Aside from instructing the adults, he is also the Cobrinha Bully-Proof Program’s lead professor, continuing to teach Jiu-Jitsu to kids as young as 4 yrs. old;
  • Florentino Morales is a brown belt under Cobrinha. He was introduced to Jiu Jitsu at the beginning of 2008 when, at a book store, he saw a book about Brazilian Jiu Jitsu techniques. He found a small school in Culver City and began training. One day, he saw a video of a Jiu-Jitsu fighter moving so smoothly, taking everyone’s back and submitting them, his name: Cobrinha. Florentino immediately began to study all of Cobrinha’s videos and DVD instructionals. Fast forward to 2012, when Cobrinha opened his headquarters in Los Angeles.  Teaching the Executive morning class is a rewarding experience for him and he tries to help every student the same way Cobrinha has helped him;
  • Kennedy Maciel is a blue belt under Cobrinha. He started training three years ago after moving to LA from his hometown of São Carlos, Brazil. He started competing regularly right after he started training and since then has collected an impressive amount of medals. In 2013 he was promoted to blue belt and has only continued his success in competition, taking gold in both PanAms and Worlds in 2014 as well as a number of tournaments in 2015 including the Jiu Jitsu World League and American Nationals. He helps with the kids classes and he teaches the M-W-F 9am classes.

  • No-Gi Jiu-Jitsu is a modern variation of traditional Jiu-Jitsu that’s trained without the gi. Because of its faster pace and greater number of transitions, No Gi Jiu-Jitsu is commonly used in preparation for grappling in MMA.
