While his master Robson Moura taught US Marines, GMA member Josef “Cobra” Manuel also took the opportunity to teach some of the secrets of BJJ to the military.
Recently the Cutting Edge BJJ leader and Moura’s first American black belt paid a visit to Camp Smith, in New York, for a class.
Manuel explains how he got there: “Staff Seargent Eduardo Hernandez has been conducting the Army Combative Course for three years and has asked for my counseling with his program at the 106th Regional Training Institute, at Camp Smith NY. With the help of assistant Instructor Isac Chaves (Brown Belt) and Iraq War Veteran Eduardo Hernandez (Blue Belt), I’ve helped prepare these soldiers that will deploy to Iraq and Afghanistan with the magical sweeps and powerful submissions of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.”
