Hi, I'm Rafael Coelho

I'm the owner and head coach of the Rilion Gracie Academy


Over the past 11 years, I've been helping kids and adults gain confidence, learn discipline and become accomplished martial artists.


Life is always full of challenges and it's very to feel overwhelmed, undecisive or lack confidence it yourself. 


That's where martial arts can help you gain self-mastery.

I've achieved a black belt  in judo and jiu-jitsu and these arts helped achieve strength of character, resilience and the ability to overcome challenges 

In July 2012, I earned my Black Belt via Master Rilion Gracie, Roger and Roggan Gracie at Rilion Gracie Academy Houston. 


 I've had the opportunity to teach people of all ages, background and experience levels including US Marshalls, Miami Police officers and members of the US military.

In the last 20 years, I've seen what jiu-jitsu can do for people and I'd love to share its benefit with you.


We love to see people grow 

  • Expert Instruction

  • A Proven  Program 

  • A friendly and supportive atmosphere 

Rilion Gracie Pensacola provides a close-knit environment as well as lots of attention to help students master jiu-jitsu.

We use Master Rilion Gracie's curriculum to help you or your child learn how to defend themselves with technique, leverage and resilience.

We believe Jiu-Jitsu is an amazing vehicle to develop strong values like discipline, courage and respect.

Our programs let you learn techniques at the right pace with instant feedback from the coaches to help flatten your learning curve.

We also help our members use their strengths, work around their challenges or  prior health conditions to reach their goals.
