Andre “Dedé” Pederneiras is a black belt under the late grandmaster Carlson Gracie. If you’re looking for a testimonial, here’s one from no less than UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who defends his belt this Saturday against Mark Hominick at UFC 129. Here’s what the champ had to say about his coach:
He is the master. We rely on him. He’s the one who calls the shots, and it works great. If you train under someone, you must have great faith. Even if you are good, you still need a trainer. That’s even truer when you consider Dedé’s [Pederneiras’s] experience. He is always there to say something important. He is always with us and he is a fundamental part of our training. He looks at the practices and says what’s good for me, for Marlon, Beição, [Leonardo Santos] and everybody else training there. He is a great person and is essential for us all.
