Check out these pics, fresh from our recent visit to Nova Uniao, the home of Brazilian jiu-jitsu and MMA in the Rio suburb of Flamengo.
Head coach Andre ‘Dede’ Pederneiras welcomed us with open arms and the Connection RIo jiu-jitsu crew hit the mats, learning a nice sneaky armbar set-up from side control. There were plenty of rounds of sparring too.
Check out the pics over on our Facebook account, and keep an eye out for the video coming soon!
