Inside Gordo BJJ: A Video Tour

The Connection Rio house is only a 60-second walk away from Gordo Jiu-Jitsu gym, so it makes sense for many (but by no means all) of our guests to train there. Many people want to know what it looks like or what to expect before they arrive, so sponsored athlete Lee Wright takes us on a brief tour and gives us an introduction to the gym.

Some of our guests will choose to train elsewhere: we’ve hosted team members from Checkmat, Alliance, Gracie Barra and many more. It’s not difficult to travel to many of the other great jiu-jitsu gyms in Rio de Janeiro. Check out this guide to travel times, from Connection Rio to BJJ gyms in Rio.

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!

Connection Rio is the best combination of accommodation and BJJ training in Rio de Janeiro. Contact us today and plan your trip to train BJJ in Rio.
