The story behind Top Brother

Top Brother founded by Mestre Cezar Guimarães “Casquinha".

Top Brother Düsseldorf eV is a branch of the Top Brother Brazil team,

founded by Mestre Cezar Guimarães “Casquinha".

Cézar Guimarães, better known as Mestre Casquinha, has been practicing Jiu-Jitsu since childhood, influenced by his father, Walter Guimarães, who was a student at Gracie Academy. Over time, Mestre Walter Guimarães began teaching at the academy of Mestre Carlson Gracie (master Hélio Gracie' s nephew) and taking part in Carlson' s preliminary fights.

Mestre Casquinha could not escape the tradition of his family and continued the Jiu-Jitsu, which he graduated with a black belt from his father and master Carlson Gracie. After a few years, Mestre Casquinha founded the Top Brother team, which is headquartered in the city of Rio de Janeiro.

Today, the Top Brother team has offices around the world and has won titles in Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing and MMA championships. In addition to the competitions, Mestre Casquinha does social work with needy children, gives special courses for the Special Police Operations Battalion (BOPE) and already has the security team of the former

Presidents of Mexico coached.

Team Top Brother quickly became one of the premier academies in the northern area of Rio de Janeiro for both BJJ and MMA, and has consistently produced great fighters since its inception.

You can find Top Brother in Germany at the moment

The focus of the Equipe Tob Brother is on BJJ, but the original idea of self-defense is also important to Team Germany, which is why they have developed their own self-defense course based on BJJ.

Top Brother Germany offers courses for adults, children

and also women-only courses.
