Brazilian jiu jitsu
at 971 MMA & Fitness Academy

Join us at 971 MMA &Fintness Academy in Dubai and learn mastery of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, the most effective martial art on the planet.

BJJ: THE GENTLE ART

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focusses on ground fighting and is considered a martial art, combat sport and self defence method. With a heritage in jujutsu, the art promotes the concept of a smaller and weaker person defending him or herself from a larger one by using technique and leverage. It requires great focus in order to learn how to overcome an opponent via joint-locks and chokeholds.

Training a martial art is one of the most beneficial things you can do, both mentally and physically. BJJ however, is more than this. It’s a way of life, because it promotes not only physical activity, but also self-improvement: it can make you into a better person.

THE MANY BENEFITS OF BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

  • No Natural Talent Needed: Technique is the only proof in Jiu Jitsu, and hard work and perseverance are the only qualities required to reach the top!
  • Confidence: Develop the confidence to achieve life goals. Overcome size and strength disadvantages, keep cool under stress, and face your fears of confrontation and physical harm.
  • Physical Conditioning: Jiu Jitsu is a lifestyle choice, with positive consequences for health, weight-loss and
    overall conditioning.

Requirement for training Bjj:

  • Patience, perseverance, and a willingness to learn are essential.
  • First-class attire: T-shirt and board shorts/sweatpants; gi/kimono and belt for gi classes; rashguard and board shorts for no-gi classes. A mouthguard is recommended.
  • Open to all ages: starting from age five.
  • High standards of hygiene required: with well-groomed fingers and toes, and long hair secured.
  • All jewelry must be removed before class to prevent injuries.

Hebert Da Costa

Background and Experience

Starting his BJJ journey at just four years old, Coach Hebert's passion for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has taken him from Rio de Janeiro to the United States and across Europe before finally settling in the UAE. Awarded his black belt in 2010 by masters Julio Cesar and Denilson Pimenta, Hebert's coaching career is highlighted by significant achievements, including three Rio de Janeiro state championships and the Abu Dhabi Grand Slam win in 2021.

Training Philosophy

Confidence Through Discipline: Hebert strives to build his students' confidence while keeping them grounded and humble, shaping individuals who carry themselves with assurance.

Hands-On Learning: Emphasizing the value of practical, hands-on experience, Hebert enjoys collaborating with peers to refine techniques and adapt what works best in real-world applications.

Relevance and Experience: With over 25 years of BJJ experience, Hebert focuses on teaching techniques that are both practical and proven, ensuring his students learn what's truly effective.

Coaching Style

Hebert describes his approach as "old school," prioritizing discipline, rigorous drills, and the effectiveness of simple techniques over flashy, modern moves, staying true to the roots of BJJ.

Success Stories

One notable transformation under his guidance involved a student in Vienna who gained confidence and physical strength, showcasing the profound, life-changing impact of BJJ.

Motivation and Goals

Driven by witnessing his students' progress and their emulation of his BJJ game, Hebert sets high standards, tailoring graduation to individual performance and dedication.

Personal Touch

With Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu as his passion, Hebert believes in the lessons learned on the mats, translating to real-life resilience and adaptability. His interests outside coaching include ancient history and astronomy, adding depth to his character.

Vision for Students

Rewarding Practice: Hebert aims for students to find personal reward in BJJ, supporting their goals, from fitness improvement to competitive sports and self-defense.

Individual Attention: By personally sparring with each student, Hebert assesses and tailors his teaching to elevate their game, recognizing and addressing individual needs.

Comprehensive Improvement: Through detailed evaluation, Hebert ensures that every student's technique, strength, and mental game are honed for optimal improvement.

Lifelong Journey: Hebert views BJJ as a lifelong journey, instilling in his students the principles of continuous learning and adaptation.
