Sèrgio Costabile

Adults & Kids Coach

Brown Belt 3rd Degree

 

Welcome to Sérgio Costábile’s martial arts journey, where dedication and discipline pave the way to success. Sérgio embarked on this incredible path in 2012, at Ryan Gracie Jiu Jitsu in Granja Vianna in Brazil. Initially motivated by weight loss. However, what started as a fitness journey quickly transformed into a deep fascination for the art of Jiu-Jitsu. He achieved his blue belt there in 2016.

Sérgio moved to Australia in 2016 where he found Arte Suave, and immediately emersed himself in Jiu Jitsu, he was the quiet shy Brazilian with lots of energy. In 2017 he achieved his Purple Belt under Anker Fuglsang and in December 2020 he achieved his Brown belt under Uroš Čulić.

Driven by his love for the discipline and the transformative impact it has on individuals, in 2021 Sérgio made the decision to share his knowledge and teach martial arts. His classes are tailored to be as accessible as possible, focusing on simplicity and effective techniques.

Sérgio’s teaching philosophy centers on developing key areas such as fluid movements, balance, and body alignment. By incorporating exercises such as training with closed eyes or limiting the use of specific limbs, he encourages students to explore their bodies in a more aligned and holistic way.

Why should you join Sérgio’s classes? The answer lies in his passion for empowering individuals through martial arts. Sérgio’s dedication and experience create an environment where students can grow not only in their physical abilities but also in their mental resilience and self-confidence.

For those preparing to compete for the first time, Sérgio offers valuable advice. Drawing from his own challenging experiences, he emphasizes the importance of perseverance, mental preparation, and maintaining a positive mindset. With Sérgio as your guide, you can navigate the competitive arena with confidence.

Reflecting on his first memory of training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sérgio recalls it as a truly transformative experience. The challenges he faced pushed him beyond his limits, allowing him to discover his inner strength and determination. This pivotal moment shaped his journey and ignited his lifelong commitment to the art.

What sets Arte Suave apart from other gyms is the sense of family and belonging. For Sérgio, it is more than just a training facility; it is a supportive community where members uplift and motivate each other. The camaraderie at Arte Suave fosters an environment conducive to growth and achievement.

Sérgio’s dedication and hard work have led to numerous accomplishments in competitive grappling. Among his notable achievements are gold medals at Grappling Industries Brisbane 2022, QBJJC Gold Coast Championship 2021, AFBJJ / QBJJC Queensland State Championship 2020, QBJJC South Pacific Championship 2020, and BJJ Australian Open 2019.

Arte Suave's fantastic gym for anyone into Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, from newcomers to the advanced. The coaching is great, and I really liked the mixture of new and old teaching styles. Emanuela's kindness and welcoming attitude made me feel at home right away, creating a positive and inclusive atmosphere. The space is also well-maintained, and the sense of community is very strong. I'd highly recommend it if you're looking to train in Brisbane!

Arte Suave is a truly an amazing Brazilian Jiu jitsu gym for everyone from the average person looking to learn BJJ, to the competitor looking to receive high level coaching in a good gym culture.The best aspect about this is first and foremost the culture and ethics of the gym, unlike a lot of other BJJ gyms there isn't any lock in contracts, hidden (or hidden increasing) fees, pressure to buy gym specific gear, or other dodgy behavior. The culture is positive and supportive of everyone's individual goals whether that's competing or not.I have had a few personal instances where the gym owner has acted with integrity and proactively identified and addressed problems affecting my billing or other smaller issues.I would strongly recommend this gym to anyone looking for a BJJ gym whether you're new or coming from an experienced background.

I’ve been training at Arte Suave for a little over a year now and can honestly say it’s amazing. The standard of teaching is incredible, with 3 high level black belts, supported by multiple competition coloured belts and visiting coaches. I learn something new every day and enjoy the mental and physical workout I get from each class. For me though, the culture is the main draw. Emanuela has done a fantastic job of building a welcoming and inclusive community, full of people from all walks of life, coming together to share their love of jiu jitsu. I can’t recommend this place enough.
