IBJJF in Rio de Janeiro (CBJJ)

IBJJF in Rio de Janeiro is a place that is easy to find for anyone … just need to know what to look for.

IBJJF (CBJJ) – Rio de Janeiro front entrance.

If you are training BJJ in Rio de Janeiro for any length of time, this may very well be one of your destinations. The IBJJF headquarters in Rio, is in an easily accessible location in the neighborhood of Barra da Tijuca, one block from the beach.

Follow the yellow line

Coming from Av. das America’s “Passarella da Barra” (first footbridge across the Avenue in Barra), walk across the footbridge toward the church. There you will see Av. Olegario Maciel, the first street headed toward Barra beach. Walk straight down Olegario for four blocks and turn left on Av. Comandante Julio de Moura. Go straight for approximately 1/2 block, just passed the Bi-Fit academy where you will see the front entrance as in the photo above.

Once inside the gate go straight back to the IBJJF- Rio (CBJJ) desk, where “Bia” will likely be waiting to help you with champinoship registration and IBJJF affiliation questions.

Barra da Tijuca, Rio de Janeiro, RJ – Brazil

Between 1:30 – 6pm on non-Brazilian holidays you will have the most luck in speaking with a representative here. *Better to get there earlier than later and be patient, there may be a wait.
