Joao (John) Marcelo Ribeiro

Jr. Coach

I’m John Ribeiro. I’m Professor Marcelo’s oldest son. I’m a Williamson county student and live in Nolensville,TN with my family.

You often find me helping teach the little kids class, training, doing my daily work out on the edge of the mats or working on my school projects or homework. All this on the mats.

I was born in Rio de Janeiro Brazil, love Brazil but my heart is here. This is my home. My life.

Since 2 years old i participate in the kids classes, before that i used to craw and take my afternoon naps around dad’s gi on the mats.

I often think about how thankful i’m for the life i have. I love Jiu Jitsu and i give all i have on my training. My father and i drill and plan my future towards my goals. Mom is always by our side helping on my decisions.

I’m an active competitor in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. I do have many medals and few titles as Pan American Champion. I’m working hard and my goal is help my dad to build his dream and also day by day building mine.

My little brother Gabe is also a competitor, we are few years apart but we drill together. You can also look for us on Facebook and follow our Jiu Jitsu life style: Ribeiro Brothers Jiu Jitsu.
