Connection Rio is much more than just accommodation and training jiu-jitsu in Rio de Janeiro. If you come to Rio we make sure that your stay encompasses all aspects of the jiu-jitsu lifestyle, right here in the land where it was developed. We bring together practitioners from around the world – people just like you – to experience this amazing lifestyle and culture, and to share in the common interest of Brazilian jiu jitsu.
At Connection Rio the boundaries of countries and banners of academies fall away. Instead, your time in Rio is all about the arte suave. You’ll stay in an environment conducive to learning jiu jitsu, you’ll make new friends and create connections that will last a lifetime.
The primary focus of Connection Rio is fair-priced accommodation that is conducive to training jiu jitsu and experiencing life in Rio de Janeiro. Our objective is much more than simply providing accommodation: we create timeless connections between practitioners of the arte suave. These boundless, worldwide connections are built through time together on the mats. Connection Rio is your passport to the homeland of Brazilian jiu jitsu, where you will experience the real jiu-jitsu lifestyle.
With our innumerable connections in the Brazilian jiu jitsu community we have access to and knowledge of the best academies across the city, from famous masters to hidden gems. When Connection Rio guests go to an academy in Rio de Janeiro they are greeted with open arms and welcomed onto the mats.
We allow our guests the freedom to explore Rio, but we provide the means through suggestions, advice, and a helping hand when necessary. Connection Rio can be as involved as little or as much as required and we can help tailor your time in Brazil to be exactly what you are looking for. Whether it is just a bed to crash in after training or a complete package with accommodation, transport, regulated diet and professional training regime, we will customise your experience to best fit your needs.
Experience the trip of a lifetime, get a deeper understanding of Brazilian jiu jitsu, and enjoy the lifestyle that surrounds it. Train BJJ in Rio and live your dreams with Connection Rio.
