The Connection Rio guest house receives people from all over the world who share a common goal: to train jiu-jitsu in Rio de Janeiro, the home of the arte suave.
Walk through the front gate and you’ll see a long stone path with towering palm trees on either side leading down to a wide, welcoming doorway. You’ll probably see a couple of guys in gis, drilling techniques or new positions on the blue mats we put down especially for this reason.
Keep walking and you’ll pass the clear blue outdoor pool – perfect for a refreshing dip – and our outdoor BBQ, our in-house version of weekend entertainment.
Meet People From Around the WorldAt any given time, there will be between 15-20+ people staying at the Connection Rio house, making for a melting pot of cultures, languages and styles of jiu-jitsu!
There is no one type of person who stays at Connection Rio. We cater to everyone from white belt to black belt, from part-timer to professional athlete.
But what you will find is this:
• People motivating each other to train up to 2 or even 3 times a day
• Grapplers constantly sharing techniques and ideas on our drilling mats
• People excited to enjoy the best Rio has to offer!
The experience that is waiting for you in Rio de Janeiro is one you won’t find anywhere else.
You’ll train with the best grapplers in the world and you’ll be exposed to the best jiu-jitsu anywhere on the planet. You’ll step onto the mat where champions were formed, and you’ll train alongside future stars of the sport and the art of jiu-jitsu. Together with your fellow Connection Rio guests you’ll visit gyms across the city and experience the real jiu-jitsu lifestyle.
This is Connection Rio – a place to train BJJ, make friends and more!
