After the struggle of 14 years, he became a master of capoeira’s techniques and movements.
2.4. Introduced to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Cobrinha's love for capoeira was replaced by BJJ, a martial art that his friend introduced. Rubens Charles’s friend invited him to attend the trial class of Jiu-Jitsu in his newly opened gym.

He recommended that Charles must continue his training under the guidance of Master Fabio Gurgel, one of Terere's former instructors and a renowned figure in the world of BJJ. The mentorship of the legendary Fabio Gurgel began a new chapter in Charles’s grappling career. Master Fabio, the “General” is well known in BJJ as a Co-Founder of Alliance Jiu-Jitsu.

3.1. Rubens Charles Vs. Mario Reis
The 2010 IBJJF World Championship was an event that would go down in history as one of the most epic bouts between elite grapplers. One such showdown was between Rubens Charles and Mario Reis, two icons of the BJJ.
As the match began, Rubens wasted no time in controlling Mario's leg, attempting a leg lock. But Mario was quick to defend and retaliate, countering Rubens' move by grabbing his lapel, perhaps aiming for a lapel guard. Yet, Rubens' defensive skills were too strong, and he managed to break free.
The battle continued, with Mario maintaining his dominant position by applying a close guard. However, Rubens was determined to pass his guard, and he did just that, freeing himself from the powerful guard attempt of his opponent. This proved to be a turning point, and Rubens seized the opportunity, submitting Mario with a back choke.
