    OntheMat.com is pleased to announce our choice for BJJ Gi Fighter of the year goes to Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles.
    Cobrinha has managed to establish total dominance in one of the most stacked weight catgories around, Pena and this year he won the Mundials Black Belt Division for the third straight time.
    Actually, Cobrinha hasn’t lost a match since getting his black belt in 2005. That’s quite an accomplishment in itself, he’s started training Jiu Jitsu at the age of 21, and earned his black belt in five years!
    2008 was an especially busy and memorable year for Cobrinha, not only winning the Mundials, but he also won the Pan Americans, the Capital Challenge in Jordan, the Battle of H Town, Lutador Cup and also took the no gi titles in the CBJJ events, Grappler’s Quest and the Bud Cup!
    Moreover, Cobrinha is absolutely excited to watch and displays the very highest level of Jiu Jitsu with each match. Says OTM co-founder Gumby “Everytime you see Cobrinha on the mat , you know you’re watching someone special. If you want to show someone the pinnacle of the sport right now, you show them Cobrinha.”
    Congratulations to Rubens “Cobrinha” Charles, OTM BJJ Player of the Year!

    I'm glad for Cobrinha. He is

    I'm glad for Cobrinha. He is so strong! I was looking for his performances when I saw how he warms up. Here is the video http://www.tubesfan.com/watch/rubens-cobrinha-charles-warming-up-before-... . I think this could be a full set of exercises for a lot of people but for him it is just a warm up.
