Jack Magee is a former Connection Rio sponsored athlete and he came back to Brazil with three students from his club in the UK, “Mad Hatters“. Three of them bunked in a dorm, while one chose to take a single room.

“I brought three of my guys out here, we were here for one month, training really hard and having as good time. I first came to Rio 9 years ago, and now I have my own academy I wanted to being my guys here so they can see where I learned most of my stuff from.”

“Connection Rio has been really helpful in getting us around Rio, going to different gyms training, and it’s probably one of the cheapest places I can think of to stay in Rio as well. And you’re always around the jiu-jitsu lifestyle. There are always people to train with, and you’re right around the corner from the academy.”

Jack and his guys trained together, went out together, had fun together, yet also enjoyed hanging out with guys from different countries. All of them loved the jiu-jitsu lifestyle.
