Supermodel Gisele Bündchen Is Dating Her Jiu-Jitsu Instructor

The ultra-popular Brazilian fashion model Gisele Bündchen is reportedly dating her Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructor Joaquim Valente after being very actively involved in BJJ for quite some time.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu looks to really be brushing off celebrities. The likes of Tom Hardy, Chris Hemsworth, Mario Lopez, and others have been in all the news lately, competing and supporting their kids who compete in the Gentle Art. Gisele Bündchen is now reportedly allowing BJJ into her private life, by dating her Jiu-Jitsu instructor.

The famous supermodel divorced NFL star Tom Brady recently, and it appears that she did not wait too long to replace one athlete with another.

While neither Gisele Bündchen nor Joaquim Valente have confirmed that they are an item, they have been seen having dinner together, in Costa Rica which prompted the speculation in the first place. They were joined by the 42-year-old model’s two children, Benjamin, 12, and Vivian, 9.

Gisele Bündchen has been training MMA and BJJ for a year and a half now, with Valente being her Jiu-Jitsu instructor from day one.

I believe the more tools we have in our toolbox the better. I feel stronger, more confidence and empowered since I started practicing self-defense. I feel it’s an important skill for all, but specially for us women.

Thank you Valente brothers for being awesome teachers and for making training so much fun. I am looking forward to keep improving,” – said Gisele Bündchen, describing her training experiences.

The famous model discovered Jiu-Jitsu through her kids, following them in training the gentle art, and now even doing photo shoots showing off her grappling skills.

 The Valente brothers are famous in the BJJ world as long-time instructors and proponents of the traditional self-defense-based style of Jiu-Jitsu.

It remains to be seen whether there is a romance between the two Brazilians, or this is just a professional relationship based around  Jiu-Jitsu.
