Professor Vauvenargues “Marinho” Vicentini

Vauvenargues Xavier Vicentini “Marinho” started training with Master Carlson Gracie (in memoriam) in 1986 at the historic Carlson Gracie Club in Copacabana, Rio - Brazil.

He received his Black Belt directly from the hands of Master Carlson in April on 1999 and has been teaching Jiu-Jitsu, coaching students at competitive grappling events as well as coaching teammates in MMA competition since then. 

As a Jiu-Jitsu instructor, Marinho taught at the Carlson Gracie Club from 1993 to 2000, while simultaneously leading classes at several high-end fitness clubs in Rio. From 1999 to 2015, Professor Marinho was the Head Defense Tactics instructor at the Federal Police Academy, also in Rio de Janeiro.

As an MMA coach, Marinho has cornered fighters who competed in Japan’s Pride FC, Pancrase, Shooto and Deep; Russia’s MM1; and Brazil’s Heroes and Shooto.

Having trained with the best of the best at the original Carlson Gracie Academy for nearly two decades, Marinho brings a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to the team, and we can’t wait to share it all with our current and future students.
