Connection Rio exists to offer people the opportunity to come to Rio and train BJJ. While most of the people who stay in one of our Connection Rio houses are BJJ enthusiasts and regular practitioners, some have never trained jiu-jitsu before.
Coming to the most beautiful city in the world to learn the ‘arte suave’ you will be immersed in the real jiu-jitsu culture and get to experience the lifestyle that has created the best grapplers of all time.
There is nothing to stop somebody with zero experience of Brazilian jiu-jitsu from coming to Rio to learn direct from the source. In fact, Connection Rio has helped many people take their first steps in the martial art.
There are dedicated classes for beginners that will ensure you develop a solid foundation. You won’t be expected to ‘roll’ straight away and you won’t get beaten up. You’ll move through a progressive syllabus of techniques, all while under close supervision from experienced and qualified teachers.
Not knowing jiu-jitsu is no barrier to coming to Rio to learn from the best.
From training and accommodation to academy visits and special tours, and even small group classes with the best teachers Rio has to offer, Connection Rio offers everything you need for the perfect jiu-jitsu holiday!
