Ricardo Cavalcanti Brazilian Jiu Jitsu


Owner and Head Instructor

Jeanelle began her career in martial arts at the age of 18 when she was first introduced to Aikido during her freshman year at the University of Central Oklahoma.  Ever since, and for over 20 years, Jeanelle has pursued the study and practice of martial arts and has achieved the rank of Black Belt in Aikido, Hapkido, and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, as well as Master Instructor in Valencia Lameco Escrima, and Master Instructor in Krav Maga. She is also a long time student of traditional boxing.

Outside of training, Jeanelle is also a Certified Peace Officer working for the State of Oklahoma and for several years she served as the Lead Defensive Tactics Instructor for the State Police Academy (CLEET).  During her tenure in this position, Jeanelle revamped and modernized the entire Defensive Tactics / Custody & Control curriculum and trained thousands of officers in defensive tactics.

The National Martial Arts Hall of Fame has recognized Jeanelle for her contributions to the martial arts world by inducting her four seperate times into their Hall of Fame.

Jeanelle draws on her extensive training, real world experience, and professional teaching experience to offer Rebellion students superb, effective training.



Owner and Assistant Instructor

Tony's initial experience in martial arts began when he was a kid when he spent several years learning and practicing Tae Kwon Do. However, as many kids do, he moved away from martial arts in favor of other sports and activities.

In his mid-twenties, Tony reignited his passion for martial arts and began studying forms of mixed martial arts. When he met Jeanelle, she encouraged him to continue his study and practice and soon they found themselves training together all the time.  Of course, this hasn't changed today.

Tony was a full time law enforcement officer for many years and during that time he too served as the Lead Defensive Tactics instructor for the State of Oklahoma's Police Academy (CLEET) where he trained cadets in Defensive Tactics and Custody & Control. Tony now holds a reserve commission and is still active in the training of law enforcement officers.

Tony was recognized by the National Martial Arts Hall of Fame and honored with induction in 2020. Tony holds a Black Belt in Hapkido and Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  Outside of these arts, Tony studies and practices Krav Maga, Traditional Boxing, and Filipino Martial Arts.



Assistant Instructor

Richard was born a fighter and had a natural ability to fight when he was very young. Growing up in a poor house hold and neighborhood, Richard found himself having to fight for many reasons. He started training in martial arts and boxing at age eleven. While he couldn't afford to pay for training, the local boxing gym allowed him to train for free because he cleaned the gym daily and volunteered to be a sparring partner with some of the gym's fighters.

Around the same time, Richard found Tae Kwon Do and trained on and off until his early 20's when he was introduced to BJJ. After being introduced to BJJ, he knew he found his passion. In 2005 Richard found himself training Aikido, Tae Kwon Do, and Jiu-Jitsu together as a combined self defense/ mixed martial arts style.


Unforeseen life circumstances intermittently pulled Richard away from training and these breaks prevented him from achieving formal, higher belt ranks/certifications in Aikido, Boxing, and Tae Kwon Do. Regardless of this, there is no question when it comes to the skill he possesses in these arts. 

Although he is no longer full time, Richard is an experienced law enforcement officer and a State Certified Defensive Tactics Instructor (DTI).  Richard will be the first to tell you that Jiu-Jitsu and Aikido were instrumental in saving his life in more then one violent encounter on the street as a Patrol Officer.  He 100% believes in the techniques we teach because he has used them in more real world situations then he likes to remember.

In 2011, Richard's focus turned strictly to Jiu-Jitsu and he remained a consistent student and practitioner since then. Currently, Richard is a BJJ Purple Belt.


After graduating DTI School in 2015, Richard began training Jiu-Jitsu with Tony and Jeanelle. Richard, his wife and kids, Jeanelle, and Tony quickly became close friends. That friendship evolved into us all becoming much closer than most families.  Rebellion is proud and lucky to have Richard as a part of our instructor team. 



Assistant Instructor

I have been a competitive person for as long as I can remember. I played every sport available to me growing up. I found martial arts, Bushido Karate, in my late 20s.


After earning a Bachelors and Masters degrees in Accounting, my job transferred me to Texas where I continued martial arts in American Tae Kwondo. I earned black belt in July 2010.


The job transferred me again to a smaller Texas town where TKD was not available, however, I started Kung Fu, ending my journey at purple belt. My Kung Fu instructor was learning Jiu Jitsu at Gracie Humaita in Austin, TX and brought it back where he introduced it to his school.

I was hooked from day one.


My Jiu Jitsu focus, and journey started in March 2012 and I almost immediately began competing. After earning blue belt, January 2013, our instructor moved closer to family and the school closed. I was so in love with BJJ that I then joined a school 80 miles away and drove to train 3–4 days a week.


I continued competition Jiu Jitsu for the next several years, competing at IBJJF, AGF, 5 Grappling, NAGA, and smaller local tournaments. I earned Purple belt in April 2015 and my 1st stripe May 2016.


In 2016, I started focusing on new career path. Training was less often, but I continued teaching kids BJJ out of my garage as I started back to school. In 2017, we decided to move back home to Duncan, OK where there was no Jiu Jitsu. I was forced to postpone training for the next 6 years.


In 2018, I resigned from 19 years of corporate accounting and started a career in health and fitness. I earned a Bachelors in Exercise Science, became a certified personal trainer with National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM), and earned my Crossfit Level 1 Certificate. I now coach a Functional Fitness class at the local fitness center and am a Therapy Tech at a Chiropractor’s office.

When RCA Rebellion Martial Arts came to town, I was ecstatic and came back to Jiu Jitsu in late October
