After their quick divorce, Gisele Bündchen and his former star athlete husband, Tom Brady, went on to live their separate lives. TB12 played and lost in games, whereas the supermodel flew to Costa Rica with her children. There, she vacationed with her jiujitsu instructor who is also her new rumored beau. On this, a famous BJJ coach threw a quip in a light-hearted way.

Joaquim Valente is a jiujitsu instructor who lives in Miami. The 42-year-old model took lessons from her for at least a year and a half and then had her two children learn from the coach too. They were seen together for a dinner get-together in Costa Rica with Viviene and Benjamin (Gisele’s children). There were friends who accompanied them to the dinner.

Rigan Machado, who is a respected BJJ coach famous for working with Ashton Kutcher and Keanu Reeves, was asked about Valente. He said jokingly, “He’s my hero! My hero now.
