Enjoying the BJJ Lifestyle in Rio at the Connection Rio house

Take a look at these pictures for a taste of the BJJ lifestyle in Rio de Janeiro. The Connection Rio house is a great place to meet new people and indulge in your passion for BJJ right here in the heart of the homeland of the arte suave!

Get closer to the source of jiu-jitsu by training at local BJJ gyms in Rio de Janeiro, some as close as only a 60 second walk away.

Connections Rio Low-12

We’re situated only a 2-min walk from the amazing Atlantic rainforest that gives Rio it’s amazing color, and the beautiful white-sand beach is a short 15-min walk. When you get here, ask the locals about the ‘secret’ beach within a short walk of the Connection Rio house – it’s a real hidden gem!

Life in the house is simple and suits guests who want to enjoy a vacation that combines the experience of visiting an amazing city like Rio while training jiu-jitsu as a hobby or a sport.

Athletes will like the peace and quiet of the neighborhood and the healthy lifestyle. The time between hard training sessions can be enjoyed relaxing in the pool and sunbathing in our huge garden with stunning views of the mountain Pedra da Gavea.


Travellers will appreciate the excellent public transport links that enable quick and easy access across the city as well as the fact we are far from a tourist hotspot, meaning prices are lower and day-to-day life is safer and more relaxed.

Everyone will like the fact the neighborhood has all the amenities you could want, with bars, restaurants, a cafe, a supermarket, bakery, drugstore and more all within a few blocks of the house. A short bus or cab ride away and you can explore the many local megamalls, with attractions, big name brands and cinemas playing English-language movies.

But most likely everybody’s favorite thing about Rio is the açai! Once you get a taste, you’ll want to make it a part of your daily diet.
