Connection Rio offers much more than just training and accommodation! This morning we arranged a surfing lesson with jiu-jitsu master Sylvio Behring, 7th degree red and black belt (coral belt).
It was a beautiful sunny morning and the guys from the Connection Rio house hit Barra beach to pick up some tips from the jiu-jitsu master, who is also an avid surfer.
Surfing is a popular activity in Rio de Janeiro and many guests want to try it out when they stay at our BJJ hostels. As none of the group had surfed before there was some nervousness as to what to expect, but the sea was calm and the waves were perfect for beginners.
Sylvio, assisted by Ze from local Barra surf school Rico Surf, gave a great class and everyone enjoyed it.
Connection Rio organises many different activities for guests, from visiting jiu-jitsu academies to tours, hang gliding, surfing and more.
