For years Renato also trained at AXKE Jiu-jitsu in Barra da Tijuca before making the CheckMat academy in Copacabana his home for training. Master Renato originally met CheckMat founder Rico Vieira when Rico was an orange belt training with Romero Cavalcanti. The length of Master Paquet and Rico Vieira’s friendship is apparent through the respect given to Renato Paquet and their relationship on the mats.
