My Trip to Bùzios: by Melyssa in Rio
Arena Bùzios was kind enough to sponsor a trip to Bùzios this past weekend for Connection Ri0 guests to compete. Three lucky guests from Connection Rio BJJ hostel made the trip by bus on Friday afternoon and were thrilled with their experience. Arena Bùzios organizers arranged fantastic accommodations for the three Connection Rio competitors at Casa Colina Pousada and the service was truly amazing.
Saturday morning the competitors arrived at the competition excited and eager to fight. Although the female of the team didn’t end up competing due to a lack of competitors in her division, the other two had challenging divisions which brought exciting matches and great performances by both.
The competition was well organized and the promoters were very friendly. It was so fantastic to have an experience at a competition in Brasil where we, as foreigners, were made to feel welcome. A huge thank you from the Connection Rio guests to also to the organizers and promoters of Arena Bùzios Competition and Dennis Asche, founder of Connection Rio. Thanks for a truly unique and fun experience.
