Gisele Bündchen visits Costa Rica with kids and jiu-jitsu instructors
A source tells PEOPLE that the three were joined by other children and adults, including Bündchen’s jiu-jitsu instructor Joachim Valente and one of the children’s school teachers. Despite some reports that Bündchen and Valente are an item, insiders say the two are not romantically involved.
“He and his two brothers are Gisele and the kids’ martial arts teachers,” the source said. “They’re not dating.”
Valente operates the Valente Brothers Jiu-Jitsu Studio in Florida with his brothers Pedro and Gui, according to their website.
In February, Bündchen shared a video of her session at the academy, saying she felt “stronger” since she started training.
“I believe the more tools we have in our toolbox, the better,” he wrote in one Instagram Post “I feel stronger, more confident and empowered since I started practicing self-defense.”
“I think it’s an important skill for everyone, but especially for us women,” Bundchen continued. “Thank you @ValenteBrothers for being great teachers and making training so much fun. I look forward to continuing to improve. Let’s go!”
“I’ve always been a seeker and a curious person who always wants to go deeper. My son is actually why I met Joachim,” Bundchen said in a clip from their article. “I have a friend who told me about the Valente brothers and their martial arts school, and since I wanted to steer my almost teenage son in the right direction, I thought he might be interested.”

He added: “At first, I wasn’t even considering it for myself, to be honest with you. But, when I brought him to the first class and started talking to Joachim, I realized that it was much more than self-defense. I became really interested [in] It felt very aligned with what I believe in philosophy and what I’m looking for in my life … It sounded like something that definitely warranted learning more.”
