Beautiful weather, an amazing city with much to see and do… You don’t NEED too many reasons to visit Rio and train Brazilian jiu-jitsu – but if you’re on the fence and need a little motivation, here are three reasons to come to Brazil with Connection Rio and train jiu-jitsu.
1: Access to the source.
This is where Brazilian jiu-jitsu was developed and shaped into the super-effective martial art it is today. From the 1930’s through to modern times, generations of martial artists battle-tested the techniques we use to create the most effective grappling style in the world. While many top champions sought out lucrative teaching opportunities overseas, many amazing teachers still remain: from 9th degree red belts to current world champions to up-and-coming stars of tomorrow.
2: Tap into the REAL Jiu-Jitsu Lifestyle
Gym, beach, acai… Living close to the ocean, right next to the nature, getting out of bed and rolling onto the mat, chilling out in the pool after a hard training session, napping on the beach before evening training, surfing on the rest days, climbing mountains on the weekend… The REAL jiu-jitsu lifetyle!
3: Get better at Jiu-Jitsu – fast
Training in such a high-level environment will sharpen your skills. You’ll be exposed to many different styles and games from specialists of all belt colors and sizes. Whether you’re prepping for a competition, thinking ahead to your next promotion, or just feel the need to bust past a plateau, an intensive training camp in Rio will elevate your game in a short space of time.
