What is Joaquim Valente’s net worth?
At the time this article is written, Joaquim’s Valente net worth is not revealed, but we assume that he earns a salary of around $58,000 per year as a Jiu Jitsu Instructor. Taking into consideration his estimated annual income, he may have a net worth of more than $500,000.
Childhood and teenage years
Joaquim Valente was born in Brazil on November 1, 1988. There is not much public information regarding his parents, early life, or education. What we know is that he has two older brothers, called Gui and Pedro. Also, it is known that jujutsu is a tradition in the Valente family that has been practiced for three generations. Dr. Syllo Valene and General Eliezer Valente were the first family members who discovered jujutsu.
The Valente brothers, Elizer and Syllo learned some basic self-defense principles from a Japanese friend back in the 1920s. Joaquim Valente and his older siblings were born and grew up in the jujutsu tradition. Their father taught them jujutsu even before teaching them how to walk or stand. Joaquim and his older brothers were only two years old when the Grandmaster, Helio Gracie started to give them private jujutsu lessons.
Later, the Valente brothers attended the courses of the Gracie Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, where they learned jujutsu from Roller, Royle, and Helio Gracies. Pedro Sr., Joaquim’s father, always wanted him to learn jiujitsu as a full fighting system.
In 2007, Joaquim Valente moved to Miami and enrolled at Barry University to study criminology. He was a Barry University student between 2007 and 2011.
Also, in 2007 Grandmaster Helio Gracie offered Joaquim the Professors’ Diploma. This was a great accomplishment for Joaquim Valente because the Grandmaster, Helio Gracie offered this diploma to just 27 people.
Currently, Joaquim Valente works as a Jiu-Jitsu instructor at Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu. Also, Joaquim has been teaching jiu-jitsu to supermodel, Gisele Bundchen’s children for a long time.
Joaquim Valente and Gisele Bundchen were photographed riding together during a getaway in Costa Rica, in January this year, and more and more voices are claiming that the two are in a relationship. The model gave up her marriage to Tom Brady after 13 years of being together after he decided to continue his sports activity.
The supermodel, 42, had a big smile on her face as she rode with Valente. Gisele Bundchen was casually dressed in jeans with a green tank top and flowing locks and looked stunning. At the same time, her jiu-jitsu instructor was wearing a blue T-shirt, and jeans and had his head covered by a baseball cap.
The two were first spotted together and sparked dating rumors after they were spotted enjoying dinner in Costa Rica in November 2022.
However, a source stated at the time that Gisele and Joaquim had a platonic relationship. “Joaquim and his two brothers have been training Gisele and her children in martial arts for the past year and a half”, said a person in their entourage. But lately, they’ve been spending a lot of time together, which further fuels speculation that the two are more than just friends.
And another source recently claimed that a relationship between the two is not completely out of the question.
If the romance turns out to be true, it would be Gisele’s first relationship since her divorce from Tom Brady was finalized in October 2022. Gisele Bundchen and her husband Brady, 45, ended things last year after 13 years of marriage. The former couple has two children: Benjamin, 13, and Vivian, 10. Brady is also father to 15-year-old Jack, who the athlete has with ex-partner Bridget Moynahan.
Despite the split, it looks like Bündchen is back to modeling and is going through it better than ever. But the same can’t be said for Brady, who used expletives when asked about how the rest of his football career will unfold.
