One of the best things about training BJJ in Rio is that there is always the opportunity to take it outside!
The Connection Rio house is situated in the beautiful neighbourhood of Barrinha (meaning Little Barra) and is a very old and traditional neighbourhood unlike other parts of Rio. There are no high-rise condominiums or freeways, instead there are plenty of quiet tree-lined streets, big houses with local families, and of course the amazing views of Pedra da Gavea and the nearby Tijuca Forest.
Brazilian black belts live at the Connection Rio house and teach classes for all guests FREE of charge.

At Connection Rio you can literally walk from your comfortable room and onto the mat in seconds to train in an intimate setting with world-class black belts.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most unique and beautiful cities in the world, and the great weather means we can spend much more time outdoors than in a lot of other places.
From training BJJ or Ginastica Natural on mats in a huge garden surrounded by palm trees and blue skies, to doing your strength and conditioning along the rocky jungle trails or down on the beach, training BJJ outdoors in Rio de Janeiro is just one of the many great reasons to visit Connection Rio and train BJJ in Brazil!
