No-Gi BJJ and MMA Training in Rio: Inc Intensive Camps

With the rise in popularity of the UFC, many people started training jiu-jitsu because of their interest in MMA. This means that not everybody who comes to Brazil wants to focus solely on training in the gi.

Many guests who stay with in the one of the Connection Rio houses are from a no-gi or MMA background. Some use the opportunity to come and learn the art of the gi, to develop their grips and play a different style against some of the best grapplers in the world.

If you’re an MMA or no-gi guy, there is plenty of opportunity and good training to be had in Rio de Janeiro. You have the choice of many top MMA gyms, including Nova Uniao, X-Gym, Nogueira Bros Training Center, Brazilian Top Team, RFT, Soul Fighters, and even the newly opened American Top Team.

Currently, Connection Rio is hosting intensive camps designed specially for two no-gi and MMA teams – one from Brazil, one from France. The teams, who’s background is in luta livre, are training at least twice a day with top coaches in grappling, wrestling and muay Thai.

We’ve also hosted many MMA fighters, from from within Brazil and from many countries worldwide. Some of the professionals who have stayed with us include Bellator fighter Marcin Held, Pride and Strikeforce veteran Kazuo Misaki, UFC veteran Pascal Krauss, IFL veteran Pe de Chumbo, M-1 veteran Daniel Weichel.

With our intensive camps MMA fighters can prepare for an upcoming bout without distraction but with plenty of options for unwinding after a hard training session, such as relaxing next to the pool or on the beach balances.

Regardless of what level fighter you are – if you’re a seasoned pro or an up and comer – Connection Rio can help arrange training at a variety of gyms, arrange in-house catering, watching local MMA events, and much more.
