At the other end of the scale, we’ve helped many white and blue belts experience the BJJ lifestyle in Rio de Janeiro. Blue belt Lewis Matthews from the UK came to Rio for 5 weeks and went home with a gold medal after competing in a local competition. Young Jordanian athlete Abdallah Nabas had his first BJJ competition experience as a purple belt here in Rio de Janeiro, learning much in the process.

Many people come to Rio just for the opportunity to meet and train with the biggest and best names from both the BJJ and MMA world. We’ve taken groups to train with De la Riva, BTT and Robson Gracie, to sample wrestling with Jose Aldo’s coach and an Olympian.
