I know Pavão since 1997, when I used to watch him fighting in the competitions in Rio. I can certainly affirm that Pavão is one of the best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors in Brazil and for sure one of the best in the world too! You guys in Rio are very lucky to have him close to you!!

Pavao is a excellent all round coach with a very complete game. He has a great teaching style while at the same time being friendly and approachable. If anyone is in his area, I would certainly recommend him as an instructor!

It was a pleasure meeting Pavao at Carlson Gracie Texas this past year. He was very patient with the kids and dedicated to teaching them. Not only is Pavao an awesome instructor but he is a great friend as well. Hurry back to San Antonio, we miss you!

J'ai rencontré Pavão lors de son passage a Paris en 2010 ou il à marqué les esprit de nombreux participants (de la ceinture blanche a la noire) au stage qu'il a donné , sa pedagogie, son attention à ses élève, son niveau technique et son caractère m'ont convaincus de rejoindre la GFTeam où j'ai été accueillis à bras ouverts ! A la precision de son enseignement est lié un véritable désir de suivre et de voir progresser ceux a qui il le dispense ! Pavão est un professeur mais aussi un ami ! Obrigado ! OSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS

I met Pavao when I started to take classes at Carlson Gracie Texas and I was thinking of training somewhere but I loved the way he taught Jiu Jitsu and I was hooked! I wish he would come back to Texas... It would be the perfect gym with him and Tim! Come Back!

I rate Huanderson VERY high as an instructor. I attended a seminar that he did at houston grappling academy. Excellent detail...unique moves I hadn't seen elsewhere.

Huanderson Pavão, grande mestre e amigo. Conhecido pela sua habilidade no jiu-jitsu e pela sua facilidade em transmitir o conhecimento. Possui todas as virtudes necessárias de um faixa preta, pois além de boa técnica é dotado de um caráter irretocável. É oriundo de uma das melhores escolas brasileira de jiu-jitsu: a Universidade Gama Filho. Osssssssssssss...

Pavao is more than a Teacher, he is my personal friend. Not only mine, but of my family, wich really likes him a lot. White Bear was my Jiu Jitsu instructor at Brazilian Merchant Marine Academy in Rio de Janeiro. Very good, professional, patient and technical.

Great instructor, very technical but communicates his technique in a manner all may understand. Had the honor of having Professor Pavao at McCall MMA and Houston Grappling Academy in 2011 for seminars.

It was my pleasure to study under Pavão last summer at Carlson Gracie Texas in San Antonio. He has a very passionate, heartfelt, motivating and team-building attitude about training and competing, and that attitude is contagious when he is around. He's an excellent instructor and always makes sure that every student in his class understands what he has just taught. He always calls attention the important details of the moves he's showing. Great instructor, competitor, and friend. I miss him and hope to see him again soon!

Met Pavao at Carlson Gracie Texas and we became friends. I've had the opportunity to train at BJJ schools all across the US and internationally, without a doubt Pavao is one of the best instructors I've seen. His character is what makes him the instructor he is. Beyond all the techniques, he actually cares about you not just your money. We hear the word "family" said a lot in BJJ but often that doesn't feel sincere. However with Pavao he really means it.
