Celebrities who train MMA: Gisele Bündchen
We might never have know that supermodel and ex-Mrs. Tom Brady was into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu if they had never split up because now she's dating her coach.
And now there's endless news articles about how they met and how much she loves training.
She told Glamour that Joaquim Valente was first her kids coach and she saw how much they loved training so she started too.
“I’m so grateful to know all of [the Valente brothers], because not only have they helped me and helped my kids, but they have become great friends, and Joaquim especially. He’s our teacher and, most importantly, he’s a person that I admire and that I trust. It’s so good to have that kind of energy, to have my kids around that type of energy.”
Bündchen posted about her training in Feb. 2022, before the relationship rumors began.
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 @ValenteBrothers for being awesome teachers and for making training so much fun. I am looking forward to keep improving.
