There are many high level competitors at the ADCC, but there is only a couple of them that are seasoned veterans like Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles.
Cobrinha, a 5x World Champion, and the runner up at the last ADCC’s -66kg division, has travled from coast to coast in the United States and even traveled to Abu Dhabi to get ready for this event.
He started his training camp at his School is Los Angeles, California with his students, then traveled to the east coast to train at Marcelo Garcia’s academy in New York to train with many top level athletes from his team whom include: Marcelo Garcia, Lucas Lepri, Gabi Garcia etc.
And eventually ended up in Abu Dhabi training with Sheik Tahnoon and 2 legends on the sport, Renzo Gracie and Rickson Gracie.
He says he has picked up many new weapons and secrets from the training and is ready to take on the -66kg division at the ADCC next week.
In closing, he states that training with these legends and learning from them means much more to him than winning the ADCC.
