You don't want a Brazilian nickname...

I have been thinking about some of the nicknames in our sport and I realized that many of the Brazilian nicknames (for both gringos and Brazilians) are not favorable or something you would necessarily want to be called in public. Other nicknames have funny stories behind them.

My first instructor nicknamed me Jesus. He had a Halloween tournament and I went as "The Dude (El Duderino,his dudeness, etc)" from "The Big Lebowski." I walked in the door and he yells "Hey it's Jesus!" I tried to explain but he wasn't having it. From then on, I was Jesus.


Here is a link to an article that list some of the more prominent nicknames in jiu jitus.

What funny or interesting nicknames have you guys heard? Any body have a funny story behind their nickname?

But now when you tap someone you can yell "Nobody fucks with the Jesus!"

How do you feel about Vitor Belfort thanking you after every win? Phone Post 3.0

ChimairaGT - But now when you tap someone you can yell "Nobody fucks with the Jesus!"

But when they tap you, they will say "Jesus didn't tap . . . did he?"

I was given one by one of my Coaches. We were eating sushi after training and he starts laughing. He says something to my other Coach and he starts giggling. Then let me in on the joke, I looked like a little Panda Bear eating my Sushi. From that point on, my nickname has been Pandinha.



Apparently, Magarida got his nickname because of his multi-colored braces. Just what I heard.

I want a nickname like retarded koala or something

We have a few in our school. I'm kind of a joker and tease guys sometimes, and sometimes the names stick.

We have a Blue Belt we call Abu Dhabi. One day I commented that he is so rough and spazzy, he thinks every roll is the gold medal round at the Abu Dhabi championships.

we got a new white belt about 6 months ago. My instructor asked me to roll with him and see how he was since he had some training elsewhere. No posture, no base, no frames, really limp. I told my instructor it was like rolling with a bowl of noodles. Boom! Everyone calls him Noodles.

6 weeks ago we got a kid (16 or so) that asked if he could get any color gi he wanted. Our Professor, assuming the kid meant blue or black instead of white, told him sure. Any color is fine. Kid shows up next week with a bright RED gi! Rolling that night when all the upper belts were choosing lower belts, I said "I'll take Super Mario". Form then on, he is known as Super Mario.
