Connection Rio provides guests the opportunity to train BJJ in many different gyms around the city of Rio de Janeiro. This week, we took a number of guests to the world famous Nova Uniao gym in Flamengo to join in the training.
Nova Uniao is the home of UFC champion Jose Aldo, and produced BJJ/MMA greats such as BJ Penn, Vitor Shaolin and many more.
Photographer William Burkardt of BJJPix.com captured the training – check out the full gallery of images on our Facebook page by clicking the image below.
From training and accommodation to academy visits and special tours, and even small group classes with the best teachers Rio has to offer, Connection Rio offers everything you need for the perfect jiu-jitsu holiday!
