Cobrinha wins at the 2008 Pan-Ams.

Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles is our guest this week on The FightWorks Podcast 2008 BJJ World Championships. Not familiar with the name? Well if it helps at all, Cobrinha came in first place in the past two years in the Featherweight division of both the Pan-Ams and the Mundials!

In this interview from FightWorks Podcast contributor Emilio Novoa, Cobrinha talks about his transition to BJJ from capoeira, current plans, and more.

We’ll also hear from BJJ black belt Toney Waldecker, the head instructor back at FightWorks in Northern Virginia. Waldecker discusses dealing with typical BJJ injuries (among others), the benefits of grappling in the gi, his experience fighting muay-thai in Thailand, and yep! – much more.

  1. Great show guys!
    Although, I suppose it is a fact of life on internet radio, but sometimes I couldn’t make out exactly what Cobrinha was saying, which was a shame.
    A transcript would be good… but I ain’t volunteering, ha ha ha!

  2. CONGRATULATIONS BABY !!! ALWAYS KNEW YOU ARE THE BEST!! AND YOU WILL GET IT!!! THAT IS YOUR PASSION.
